By registering for this Rising Star Academy Production, your cast member will participate in a fast-paced and fun education in musical theatre: singing, dancing, and acting while working towards a culminating production of Disney's Aladdin JR.
Through full cast and small group rehearsals, cast members will receive training in acting, singing, and dance technique. They will learn theatrical terminology and etiquette, and they will build confidence and explore their creative side in a brave, encouraging, and challenging environment. At this level, we are focusing on character physicality, proper vocal technique, and increasing precision and performance in dance.
At the end of our rehearsal time together, cast members will showcase their learning in a fully produced production with costumes, sets, props, lights, and special effects!
About Disney's Aladdin JR
Disney’s Aladdin JR. is based on the 1992 Academy Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within.
The story you know and love has been given the royal treatment! Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar, and Kassim, are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and the Genie who has the power to grant three wishes. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Jasmine, Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and his moral character. With expanded characters, new songs, and more thrills, this new adaptation of the beloved story will open up “a whole new world” for your young performers!
Tuition & Other Costs
Tuition for this production experience is $135 per cast member. This production fee will include four months of rehearsal, a cast t-shirt, production materials, and the production script. Financial assistance and payment plans are available. Please email email@example.com for info. If you have more than two children participating from the same family please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info about our siblings discount.
Due to the participation cost associated with our program compared to the high cost of producing a production, several fundraisers are required of the cast. Parents may pay a buy-out fee of $250 in lieu of participating in the planned fundraisers. You can read more about the planned fundraisers for Disney's Aladdin JR here.
Most costumes will require a costume fee for cleaning, alterations, rental fees, or materials. These fees will be sent with the costume breakdowns for each cast member.
Tickets to the performance will be available to parents for purchase prior to the public sale for $10 each.
A full rehearsal schedule is attached below. Please look over it closely to make sure your child has minimal conflicts with the rehearsal process and zero conflicts with tech week and show dates. All rehearsals and performances will take place at the Greene County Wellness Center (84 N. Perry Drive, Snow Hill, NC 28580)
At auditions, you will receive a conflict form with an opportunity to tell our Production Team of any known conflicts with the rehearsal schedule. We will take note of these and plan accordingly.
This show has both FULL CAST (all cast members) and small group rehearsals. After the show has been cast, you will get a rehearsal schedule that has exactly who is called for small group rehearsals.
If you have questions about the schedule and conflicts, please email email@example.com
No experience is needed to participate in this Rising Star Academy production. While everyone receives a role in this Rising Star Academy Production, auditions are still held to place each cast member in the perfect role for them.
Auditions for Disney's Aladdin JR will take place on August 26th from 9 AM-12 PM at the Greene County Wellness Center.
After registering for the production, an email will be sent to the parent/guardian with instructions for accessing the scenes & songs needed for auditions. They will be asked to sing, dance, and act using materials provided ahead of the audition.
At home practice for these auditions will be super important because we want cast members to be confident with the material and also perform their very best. However, remember that everyone will get a role in the end. We hope these are low-pressure/low-stakes experiences for our Rising Stars!
