Upstage Theatre Program at Roscomare Road Elementary (3rd-5th Grade)
Roscomare Road Elementary’s Production of: Disney’s High School Musical Jr., rated G
Program Cost: $495
Price includes: Attendance to all classes/rehearsals, participation in the two shows. Also includes costumes and props–note parents may be asked to purchase a specific dance shoe or an under garment like a leotard and tights but the outer costume will be provided for use during the show. Also includes one script and music (replacement of one of these two items can be purchased for $20). Students will be working with a Professional Director, Choreographer and Musical Director during rehearsals. There are no make-up classes for missed classes/rehearsals, no refunds once payment is made, and students are expected to attend all classes/rehearsals and exhibit good behavior, as the rest of their class relies on them to be a participating cast member. It’s a team effort. Note, tickets to the show are not included but will be offered to cast families first- tickets are approx. $12-16. Parents are asked to help make the program a success and fun for the children by helping with a few items related to the show.
