We are so excited to be a part of something great with you! Like many homeschooling experiences, your student will learn hands-on what it means to work hard, memorize, learn basic theater skills, coordination, cooperation, work towards a common (awesome) goal, interpersonal skills, make new friends and just plain have a load of fun! Year after year this is what I look forward to – I hope that your child will share my feelings.
Parent involvement is required for your child to participate in the play although, for parents of young, non-school age kids, it can look very doable. We are very flexible and will find the perfect fit for you at this stage in life.
The play is mainly run by volunteers. We need 100% effort from both you and your student. We need your help with making sure your child is on time, arrives with a good attitude, and is respectful to authority figures. A little pep talk from mom or dad often goes a long way!
We have many different opportunities for you to shine. A minimum of Ten (10) volunteer hours are required to participate in the show. IF YOU DO NOT SIGN UP FOR A SPECIFIC AREA, ONE WILL BE ASSIGNED TO YOU. Please take this responsibility seriously: Show up on time, be ready to work, and meet new faces and friends. The friends I have met through the play have continually been my core of friends at Parkview. It is doubly true for my children.
If you have any questions, PLEASE ASK EARLY. It is harder to be flexible or take in new ideas or ways to tackle a problem when our time draws closer to performances.
Welcome to the team! It is an honor to work beside you!

Please audition for the primary role you are interested in. You will sing only once at the audition. You will be considered for other roles based on your audition.
1. Be prepared. You should be well prepared for an audition because it will give you more confidence.
a. your dialogue several times in front of a mirror so that you are sure that your face and body are as dynamic as your voice.
b. your song, sing it over and over and over again with the
accompaniment you will use during the audition.
c. movement. Try several different options before deciding on the
d. in front of family and friends so that you can get over the first
e. your timing. You don’t want to race through your dialogue.
3. Relax. If you get nervous, take a moment to get focused. Try putting your head down, closing your eyes, and taking a couple of deep breaths to get rid of those last few butterflies.
4. Project! Project! Project! Make sure that you can be heard. Your voice should fill the entire audition space. It is better to shout than to not be heard at all.
5. Have fun! Try to forget the pressure of the audition and just look at it as another opportunity to perform – for a captive audience! Whether or not you get cast in a role, you will learn a lot from the audition experience that will help you to meet future challenges head on!
