OVATIONS THEATRE

AUDITIONS FOR STANDING_O 2019/2020 SEASON

ABOUT STANDING_O PERFORMANCE ENSEMBLE
STANDING_O performance ensemble was created and designed to prepare students in grades 5-9 to bridge between our Junior and Senior Company and help prepare to build a solid foundation for their future, no matter if they choose to pursue college training in the arts or otherwise. It teaches them hard work, discipline, working toward goals, teamwork and much more. STANDING_O uses locally established artist to help teach our young students how to excel in voice, dance, and acting. It allows young students who are dedicated to performing and who love Musical Theatre to grow in their gifts while providing top-notch training.

STANDING_O Performance Ensemble is a mix of training hours and rehearsal leading up to several performances including a Winter Cabaret held in December, A black box production of INTO THE WOODS JR in May as well as a Final Showcase held in June. Additionally, there are opportunities for roadshows and smaller cabarets. Members will be invited to our masterclasses (free of charge) held twice a semester. We will also host guest choreographers each semester who will choreograph several numbers!
