Registrations are now open for students from Years 3 - 6 to commence tryouts for this year’s production at Kalamunda Christian School.
Alice The Musical is a brilliant production based on Lewis Carroll's timeless classic, Alice In Wonderland. Incorporating a creative combination of song and dance, narrative and drama this primary school musical is sure to be a big hit with children and parents alike!
Note that amateur performance rights in Australia for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory were not available from Warner Brothers, who currently hold all rights. Last year it was mentioned that we planned to purchase this production, however we were unable to.

Entry into the production is through an audition process. When casting, roles will be given based on student’s behaviour and participation during tryouts and auditions. The following criteria will be considered during the audition process:
Physical skills – including control, energy, spatial awareness
Presenting/sustaining character – clarity in presentation, belief, conviction, energy, complexity
These auditions, whilst focusing in part on such attributes as vocal and physical skills, also put a large emphasis on teamwork and collaborative skills (which are essential tools for all students throughout their school life and beyond).
Those students who are successful in the auditions would be expected to commit for the remainder of the school year. Weekly rehearsals will be held in the school gymnasium on Thursdays (3:15pm – 4:30pm).
