Junior Musical Theatre is an elite group, similar in concept to the sporting "Specials” teams. Our aim is to further develop the skills of singing, acting and dancing among young men who are keen to be part of our future senior musical productions and choirs. Emphasis will be on the musical theatre genre and singing in particular.

When does it take place?

Thursday mornings in the Little Theatre (Drama Block) 8.15 - 9.15 am, Terms 1 - 4.

In Term 4 the group performs as part of the Junior Performing Arts Showcase in three public evening performances, and two matinees.

Who runs it?

Tuition is primarily by local singing teacher Mrs Clark with some assistance from senior students, old boy Mark Kilsby, Mr Burton and Mrs Coetzee.

Who should apply?

Junior students with a strong interest in the Performing Arts and musical theatre in particular. After teaching material early in Term 1, auditions are held to determine the final makeup of this very popular group. Punctuality, reliability and attitude are very important.

What does it cost?

There is no cost to students. Income from the performances and Music Department funding allows this activity to be cost-free.
