School Year: 2022-2023
Welcome to the Redmond Middle School PTSA’s production,
 
Beauty and the Beast Jr. 
 
Synopsis:

Based on the acclaimed films and Tony®-winning Broadway musical, Beauty and the Beast JR., tells the story of the bright and beautiful Belle, who yearns to escape her provincial life…and her brute of a suitor, Gaston. However, Belle gets more adventure than she wished for when she becomes a captive in the Beast’s enchanted castle! Dancing flatware, menacing wolves, and singing furniture fill the stage with thrills in this beloved fairy tale about two very different people finding strength in one another and learning how to love.

Production Participation FAQ’s

Who can participate in the production?

All RMS students are invited to participate. In addition, those students who are home schooled or attend a choice school, but live within the RMS attendance area, may participate upon request.

Can I participate in season 1 or 2 sports and the musical?‚Äč

Because of extensive schedule conflicts, students participating in LWSD season 1 or 2 athletics will not be available to participate in the musical.

What are the participant’s fees?

The fee, payable to RMS PTSA, is due with registration as follows:

  • $150 for cast members (on stage)
  • $40 for production crew members (set and prop design, and backstage)
  • Full and partial PTSA scholarships are available. E-mail dramachair@rmsptsa.org to inquire

How do I register?

An email with the registration link will be sent to the address provided at the parent meeting. Once registration is confirmed, another email will follow with audition information.

What if I have other activities that I’m committed to?

Occasional conflicts are allowed, but substantial conflicts may affect the role offered. A conflict calendar will be filled out in conjunction with your audition form. If it’s difficult to commit to three rehearsal days each week, consider joining the tech crew, which meets on Wednesdays only.

What are the Parent committees I can choose from?

Help where you like! Choose from the following committees: Crew Leaders, Makeup & Hair, Load-in & Strike, Design & Publicity, Concessions & Star Grams, and Cast & Crew Party. Detailed descriptions of committee responsibilities and sign-ups will be available at the Parent Meeting on September 22

Do I need to have acting, singing, or dancing experience?

No, you do not need to have any previous acting experience. This school play is a great place to try out theater and see if you like it!

What are your covid safety protocols?

We will be following similar protocol to the LWSD protocols for health.  Please, do not show up to rehearsal if you have symptoms or have been told you should quarantine.  A good rule of thumb is when you are safe to return to school, you are safe to return to rehearsal. 

Code of Conduct

All students and chaperones must agree to the code of conduct here

I have another question! Who do I ask?

Please email Producers Danielle K. and Cindy G. with your questions at dramachair@rmsptsa.org

 

We hope your family can join us to create this dramatic masterpiece!
