Grade 2 and 3 students – “The Aristocats” auditions are coming!
Here is a brief summary of the story:
When a retired opera singer leaves her inheritance to her cat, Duchess and three kittens, the woman’s butler drugs the cats and abandons them in the countryside in order to inherit the fortune himself. Lost in unfamiliar territory, Duchess and the kittens meet Thomas O’Malley, an alley cat willing to help them return to their home in Paris. They meet several kooky characters along the way, including two English geese and an alley cat jazz band.
If you would like to try out, please sign up for an audition time, which will take place on the following days during lunch: August 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 26th and 27th. Sign up sheets will be posted outside your classrooms.
For the audition, you will need to sing a short but dramatic song and act out part of the story. The musical will be performed in December and the rehearsals will take place on Mondays and Fridays (and possibly a few Wednesdays) after school. There will also be three Saturday morning rehearsals in November.
