Each year our campus comes alive with the sound of music! St. Junipero Serra Catholic School produces a musical each year offering a unique opportunity for all students in grades 1 – 8 to be a part of a live theater performance. Whether it’s acting, singing, dancing or crew – there’s a role for every student who wants to be a part of this very special event. A cast and crew of 100+ from all grades and all ages work together collaboratively to communicate a compelling story through singing, dancing, acting, costuming, lighting and set design. Students develop self-confidence and learn all aspects of theater performance both in front of and behind the curtain.
Preparation and practice for the musical occur after school for 6-10 weeks, leading up to three performances for audiences of 400-600. These delightful performances create a special bond with our students, and could not happen without our dedicated parent volunteers and SJSC staff members. For more information about our School Musical Program, contact Janess Sifers at firstname.lastname@example.org
Crew will be needed at the end of March. Crew may be students in grades 5-8. Please complete the crew application by January 22nd.
Crew update: Due to a large number of applicants we will be splitting the crew into "front of the house" and "back of the house". 5th and 6th grade will represent the front of the house (ushering, ticketing, patron guidance) and 7th and 8th grade will represent the back of the house (props, sets and green rooms).
