Registration is now closed for our Fall Musicals. The lottery for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will occur this weekend. If you would like to be considered for any openings that may become available or have any questions, please email at RCT@therct.com
Hello RCT families,
As most of you know one of RCT’s greatest challenges is the registration for our Fall Junior Musical. Every year it fills super fast. Computers fail. Children cry…parents sometimes cry too. In an effort to alleviate the challenges, pain and tears of the registration process – we are making a change. This year we have not one but TWO Fall musicals! Neither show requires an audition to participate. Opportunities for solos and lead roles will occur within the productions. If your child wants to try out Musical Theatre, in fact if your child just wants to try theatre, that’s ok too. Our directors are committed to having some non-singing roles too! If they want to try it, we have a show for them!
Aladdin Jr. will be our Junior Musical this year. Dody Hansen will be directing this show this year. She has served as assistant director on countless shows and is a valued member of our RCT family. Performances will be at Churchill High School October 14,15,16 and 21, 22, and 23. (Student matinee Oct. 18.)
And we are introducing the Elementary Musical this year. Jungle Book Kids will be directed by Becky Hope. Becky is new to RCT but is no stranger to children’s theater having worked with children throughout Lane County. We are excited to bring her on board. This will be a full musical experience performed at the Wildish Theater on Sept. 30, October 1st and 2nd.
The Registration Process will be a little bit different than in years past.
Registration will open on Friday, June 3rd and will be open for 2 weeks.
If your child is a 6th, 7th or 8th grader in September 2016 they will only be considered for Aladdin Jr.
If your child is a 1st or 2nd grader in September of 2016 they will only be considered for Jungle Books Jr. Actors in 3rd , 4th , and 5th grade will have two options. The first is to be placed in a lottery, based on gender and grade, where your child may be cast in either Aladdin or Jungle Book Jr. The second is to request to be considered for Jungle Book Kids only.
Our hope is to cast every single kid. However, in the event that the number of applicants exceed that maximum number of spaces available, cast members will be selected by lottery. Only those registered will be considered.
The lottery process is designed to give directors as balanced a cast as possible. Lottery will occur on the weekend of June 18th and 19th, and emails will be sent directly to applicants.
Size limit is 60 for Aladdin and 45 for Jungle Book. A wait list will be maintained.
Tuition due at time of registration.
$225 for Aladdin (T-shirt and DVD included)
$175 for Jungle Book Kids (T-shirt and DVD included).
Scholarships and sibling discounts are available. If tuition is a barrier to your child’s participation, please contact email@example.com to discuss options.
Rehearsals will be held at FUMC on the same days and times to allow a mingling of the two casts for theater games and warm ups.
Each cast member will be given a free student ticket to the other group’s show.
Rehearsal for shows Begin with one week in August 22nd-26th in the evenings. Then evening rehearsals resume September 6th and go through October 2nd for Jungle Book and through October 23rd for Aladdin.
