There will be a total of 18 days (36 hours) of rehearsals in December and January with no rehearsals on Fridays. Please check the detailed schedule below. This program is valued at $200 per Core Cast student. However, thanks to PTA funding, will be offered at a 50% discount of $100/student Core Cast registration fee. The Beginner's Ensemble is also discounted to a $50/student registration fee.  Audition signup will start mid-November. Come back to check this site, or look out for fliers going home.

The audition will consist of preparing and singing 1 song.  Your student will be asked to sing for 30 seconds. Please prepare something the child is comfortable singing. It can be "Happy Birthday to you".   The child will also be asked to follow a simple dance routine as well.  


The total maximum cast will be 40 students. 

Please inform us of your student's availability upon auditioning.  The Beginner's Ensemble will be participating in fewer songs and scenes. This is a great opportunity for the younger students who want to experience theatre. The rehearsal schedule will be approx. half of the hours, approx.10 days worth of rehearsal.  

Scholarship program is available. *The application link is at the bottom of this page 


We will be seeking 4 Backstage volunteers from 4-5th graders. They will help move stage props, give cues to the performers, etc.  Registration is free.  They will be required to attend the last 3 rehearsals (Feb 6,7,8) and attend all the school and public performances (Feb 9,10). Please email if your child is interested.

NOTE:  There will be days when the group will focus on a particular scene, and your child may not need to come to rehearsals.  This worked well last year, and we would like to announce these days earlier this year to allow easier scheduling for families.  However, we will not know the schedule for your child's free days until rehearsals start. Thank you for your patience.  You will have the opportunity during the audition signup to let the instructors know of any other weekly classes or appts that you prefer to keep in case we can incorporate them into your "off-day" scheduling.

Click here to learn about our amazing production company!

Cardboard Playhouse Theatre Company is responsible for the audition process and will be making all the decisions for the cast.  The production company will be instructing the students in acting, singing, and dancing. Costume and Stagecraft instructions are provided by the production. PTA will take those instructions and work with VOLUNTEERS (parents, family members, students, teachers) to create the costumes and stage art. Your child does not need to be part of the cast for the child or family members to help in the volunteering.  We welcome everyone to join this community fun! 


We need adult volunteers who can help coordinate!   Please click to see various tasks from stage crafting to snack coordinators, to creating sign-up genius sign-ups!  Many tasks can be done from home.  Dads are also welcome and much needed for stage craft, and setup / teardown.
