BEST 2016

The Program will Present: Shrek, Jr.
Grades 4-8

The BEST Program accepts students in the 4th through 8th grades at time of audition.  The program focuses on acting, singing, and dance training, while rehearsing a full length or junior-version musical production.  Professional designers create the scenic, costume, and lighting elements to put students in a real-world production.  Three weeks of rehearsing choreography, singing, and acting bring the show to life, with two final performances, open to the public, in the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center.  Through the rehearsal process, students develop valuable performance skills and understand the hard work to bring their characters and the show from script to stage. 

Students CURRENTLY in Grades 4 through 8 during the '15-'16 academic year are allowed to audition. Prior experience is not required, but students should have a strong interest in theatre, music, or dance. Auditioning does not guarantee a role in the program. Though we will do our best to accommodate all students, we must limit the number of participants to provide a positive experience.
