The musical is an extra curricular activity that takes place from 3:00 – 5:30 pm beginning with auditions on October 9th and running through the performances on December 14 and 15.
*This year, due to Ms. Burkett’s new arrival, MMS will be performing Little Mermaid Jr. under the direction of Joy! Grubbs. Parts include Ariel, Prince Eric, Flounder, Scuttle, Sebastian, King Tritan, Ursula, Chef Louis, Flotsam and Jetsam, the Mersisters, Sea Creatures, Sailors, Gulls and many, many more. There are more than 50 parts! The parts are then determined by the audition process of singing and acting on October 9th. The students will be asked to sing only if they wish to have a speaking part in the show. There are many parts with acting and dancing that the student would not need to sing solo in order to receive. If the student would like to audition for a main part, ladies are asked to sing the song “Part of Your World” from measure 70 to the end. Gentlemen are asked to sing the song “One Step Closer” measure 7 – 14. Additionally, there will be callbacks for some on Friday, October 12th with the final decisions posted by noon on October 13th.
