Aladdin Jr will be performed at the school on February 15th and 16th 2017
All of these rehearsals are only for 5th and 6th class children involved in the musical as an after school activity on Wednesdays. Children in 4th class will only be rehearsing during school hours.
As we have only a handful of weeks between now and the showtime every member of the cast will be required for rehearsals every Wednesday after school from 2.30-4.00. Stage crew are not required for the January rehearsals but will be required for all the February rehearsals.
Rehearsals will also take place during lunch times on some week days as well.
Don't forget that there are two Saturday rehearsals coming up on 4th and 11th of February. The full cast and stage crew will be required for each of the Saturday rehearsals.
The rehearsal on Saturday 4th takes place from 10-2.30.
The rehearsal on Saturday 11th takes place from 1.30-6.00. This is a change from what has been arranged previously as some children in 6th class are taking an entrance exam for secondary school that morning.
2.30-4.00 Continuing with Act 2. All required (except stage crew).
2.30-3.30-Everybody. We will begin the songs for Act 2. These rehearsals will take place in Paddy's room as the Halla is being used for the book fair.
3.30-4.00 Carol-Anne will work with the Magic Carpet and Genie.
Rory will work with Aladdin and Jasmine.
Gillian will work with Iago and Jafar on 'Why Me'
(Understudies are welcome to attend these rehearsals if they wish)
As there is a training day for teachers this Wednesday November 30th there will be no after school rehearsals this week.
Please try to have all of your lines off book for Act 1. We will begin Act 2 next week.
Please bring in a USB stick if you have not done so already so you will be able to practise the songs at home.
2.30-4.00 Everybody needed except stage crew. Please have all lines covered in Act 1 off book.
2.30-4.00 EVERYBODY (except crew members) needed.
We will be finishing off 'One Jump' and we also want to start blocking through Act 1.
2.30-4.00: EVERYBODY (Genie can leave at 3.30). We are blocking and placing people for the opening scene. Please keep looking over and learning 'Arabian Nights' and 'One Jump Ahead' as these songs are at the beginning of the show.
We are also going to try to keep learning 'Friend Like Me'.
All lyrics for 'One Jump Ahead' must be learned.
Continue with 'Arabian Nights'
If lyrics for 'One Jump Ahead' are learned we will begin 'Friend Like Me'
3.30-4.00: Aladdin, Jasmine and Razoul with Rory (understudies if available too)
3.30-4.00: Rheanna, Aoife, Luana, Genie with Carol-Anne
3.30-4.00: All Narrators and Lydia (with Sinead)
Music for 'Arabian Nights' is available to download now.
There is also a section of this blog that includes a link to a YouTube video that includes every single song.
Carol-Anne and Rory can take memory sticks to download copies of the music for people too.
Please, please make sure the lyrics for 'One Jump Ahead' are learnt for next week. It is so important or otherwise we will fall behind on where we need to be!
Welcome to our blog page about Aladdin Jr which is taking place in the school on February 15th and 16th 2017.
This blog hopes to keep you up to date on all news related to the show.
Cast members can find information about auditions and rehearsals on this page.
The cast will consist of children from 5th and 6th class only.
Rehearsals will take place every Wednesday after school from 2.30-4.00 so children interested in partaking in the show are requested to keep this day and time free.
Not every member of the cast will be required to attend rehearsals each week so it is important to keep up to check the rehearsal schedule on this blog each week.
We can't wait to get started!
