What you should do: 1. Write down the above dates on your calendar. You must be able to be present at these dates – no exceptions. 2. Plan an act and register for the talent show. Turn in your permission slip. 3. Get together with friends - group acts can be fun. You will rehearse on your own, when you choose! 4. Children who would like to sing or dance must choose EITHER singing OR dancing. Our microphones do not work well when children are moving and singing. 5. Rehearse at home so your act is somewhat ready for the Previews. We will help you with your act if you need help. 6. Provide your music in electronic format (mp3) via email by 3/3/17. Ask for help if you need it. The email address is email@example.com 7. Keep rehearsing on your own – practice makes perfect! 8. Bring everything you need - which includes your costume and props - to the Previews and the Dress Rehearsal dates. 9. All pictures will be taken at the previews on 3/13 and 3/15 – so be sure to wear your complete costume. 10. Have the best time ever at the show! Take a bow! Hear the crowd roar!
Time: Solo acts are limited to 1 minute, 20 seconds (if a song, one verse and one refrain) Group acts must be 2 minutes or less Please don’t ask for more time. Everyone has the same rules.
Emcees: Emcees must attend rehearsals after school as called by Talent Show Team. This is a weekly commitment so don’t sign up to be an emcee if you have after school activities that conflict. Emcee parents will be called upon to help and support the show. Be prepared to donate some of your time. Emcees must be in 4th grade
Music: Parents - please review music selection for family friendliness. Listen to the lyrics – are they appropriate for 8 and 9 year olds? Please avoid having a voice on a soundtrack for your child to sing along to. Look for karaoke tracks available online. Please provide music by electronic format (mp3) via email by 3/3/17. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Keep a copy for rehearsals. Make sure everyone in the act has a copy of the music for practice.
Performers: Children may appear in one act OR as an emcee (not both). Siblings and parents are welcome! We love family acts! A parent must participate with younger siblings.
