We are auditioning for TWO musical theatre troupes for ages 7-18.
(If your child has recently participated in a DMR program, you will likely not need to audition)
You MUST register at this link to audition:
First is our 2015-2016 DMR All Stars! This is a performance and outreach troupe, with regular rehearsals on Sundays from 2:00-3:30, beginning on September 13. All Stars are asked to make a commitment for either 1st semester (September-December), the 2nd semester (January-May), or both. There is a total cost of $140 per semester (4 payments of $35), as well as affordable performance attire. Financial assistance is available for those in need! Our focus will be on performance and outreach, not on competition.
The Dream Team is a competitive performance troupe. It is made up of our most advanced and dedicated performers who aspire to pursue a career in the performing arts. Our first year as a competitive group saw our students considered for leading roles on Broadway, in film and on television series. Our students excelled in every area of performance — from scoring leading roles in professional, community, and educational theatre as well as numerous films, to winning awards at conferences and competitions, to receiving thousands of dollars in scholarships for educational opportunities. Perhaps this is a coincidence, but we believe that the discipline, passion, and inspiration gained from being a member of our troupe and the professional training they received made this a reality. We will be traveling to Norfolk for the very first Junior Theatre Celebration at the Virginia Theatre Association Conference in October. The conference takes place October 22-25, and our adjudication will be on Oct. 24. In addition to VTA, we are also planning a trip to NYC in early 2016, (along with at least one other youth performing arts academy), where we will train with Broadway performers, see a Broadway show, and perform for adjudicators. We are also planning an industry workshop or showcase with NYC Casting Director(s) and/or agent(s). Planned dates for our trip to NYC are Jan. 15-17.Those who sign on for the Dream Team will have their *All Stars* fees waived for the first semester, so stay tuned for that exciting audition notice. Dream Team will have planned rehearsals on Sundays from 3:45-5:15, with our first rehearsal on Sunday, August 30 from 4:30-6:30.
Auditions will take place on Thursday, August 20 from 4:30-6:30. You may sign up in a 30 minute block and you must prepare a short song (16-32 bars or a verse and a chorus). Please also be prepared to move (and bring or wear appropriate clothes and SHOES for dancing)! You MUST register for this audition. For DMR All stars, we are looking for joyful performers who want to share their passion of singing, acting and dancing. Scholarships and financial assistance is available for DMR All Stars. For Dream Team, we are looking for more polished performers with a dream of pursuing performing arts in college and/or as a professional career. Very limited financial assistance is available for Dream Team.
*Invitations for those who have already auditioned will be sent by Tuesday, August 18.
