Every workshop participant has a role in the Lion King Jr. production. On Friday, August 4, during the workshop, the participants are given the opportunity to experience an audition similiar to our summer musical audition process. We will use these auditions to determine leading roles. Every student will have a role in Lion King Jr.
After the week long workshop, we will have rehearsals Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings until closer to performance week. Please review the rehearsal schedule prior to registering. All conflicts must be submitted by the end of workshop week.
Due to popular demand, the Yes! Program is allowing artsIQ to have two school performances this year. Please be aware that your child needs to inform their teacher on the first day of school. These performances will be on the mornings of Thursday, September 21 and Friday, September 22. MTVarts has approval from Mount Vernon City Schools for these performances. Participants from other school districts need to contact their schools on the first day.
