Our Children’s Theatre Company is open to students in grades 3-6.  Students do not need previous experience in order to participate. This company is open to the first 30 students who enroll in the program. All students who enroll in our theatre company are cast in the production. 

 

The Children’s Theatre Company performs two 70-minute junior shows every year. These shows are presented at the King Opera House in Van Buren with full sets, lights, costumes, and more; all of which give the show a true professional look for these young actors!

REHEARSALS:

Rehearsals for the Children’s Theatre Company are Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 4pm-6pm at Saint Boniface.

 AUDITIONS:

Audition material for the show is sent to those students who register two weeks before auditions. Typically, students prepare a segment of a song from the show and then are asked to read from the script. Students will review audition material with the production team prior to auditioning in class.

 

For students interested in preparing for their auditions, CSA offers a two-day Audition Prep Class which meets 4pm-6pm the Tuesday & Thursday prior to auditions. Students will work on material needed for auditions as well as hone their auditioning skills with one of our theatre faculty. The class concludes with a practice audition in front of the production team of the show.

Dreamwork's Madagascar
A Musical Adventure JR

Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto your stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime.  Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR. follows all of your favorite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar.

  

Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York's Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends — Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo — have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape — with the help of some prodigious penguins — to explore the world.

Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, Madagascar JR. will leave audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”

Nervous for your first audition? Don't worry, head over to our audition prep page to find out how you can skip the nerves!
