Do you love to dance? Are you looking to hone your craft? These one on one lessons offer students a chance to develop and perfect their dance skills. Lessons will focus on technique, stage presence, strength, conditioning, as well as audition preparation. Choose from a variety of styles including Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Fosse, and Lyrical. 

Join us for the joyfully brilliant ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination. Roald Dahl's Matilda Jr. is the story of an extraordinary girl with an extraordinary mind, based on the 1988 children's novel by Roald Dahl, and 2013 Tony Award winning Broadway musical. Roald Dahl's Matilda Jr. follows Matilda Wormwood, who, belittled by her cruel parents for her love of reading and sharp mind, is also constantly punished along with her peers by the unjust rulings of the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. Dreaming of a better life, Matilda uses her courage, cleverness, intelligence, and special powers, and the support of her lovable school teacher, Miss Honey, to take a stand, and grasp her destiny in her own, tiny hands.

Join us for a hybrid model as we rehearse in person once a week with a virtual component at home! We will meet in person masked and socially distanced to learn our music (outside), choreography, and blocking. Virtually students will record their vocals and we will mix the songs together! This will allow students to perform choreography to their pre-recorded musical numbers on a set, with lights, and in costume! The choreography videos will get mixed with scenes recorded at home on zoom (in costume of course) to make our show! 

Click here to see our Newsies “Zoomsical” to get a sense of what it will look like. This “Zoomsical” did not include a set, lights, or costumes like we are planning with Matilda.

IMPACT!
WTP's Audition-Only Group

FULL YEAR

$595 & $50 Costume Fee

Experienced students take a performance on the road! Highlights include parades, Junior Theater Festival, festivals, plays and musical theatre.*** 

***Preference is given to students enrolled in the program or who have been enrolled in the program recently. 

During the Fall semester, IMPACT would be working on their competition piece to take to the Junior Theatre Festival in Atlanta, GA. Sadly we will not be attending the festival in-person this year due to COVID. However, we will still be working on a JTF style piece either to be submitted to a virtual JTF OR to have adjudicated virtually by Broadway professionals. Either way, it will allow all of us to continue to practice our techniques for when we return to a full, in-person festival again in the future.

 

In addition to working on the JTF piece, we will be taking a portion of our time to collaborate together (staff and students) on what WTP can do to support the current movements in our country to acknowledge and fight social injustice. We will be striving to create ways for IMPACT to live up to it's tagline, "Reaching our local and global communities" and grow our work as Citizen Artists.

 

Since we can not have one large group this Fall working on a JTF piece (due to COVID precautions), we will be splitting IMPACT in half. These two halves will not be "junior" and "senior", just simply half of IMPACT. Placed based on casting. Any student auditioning for IMPACT could be placed in the Wednesday night or the Friday night group (both meeting 7pm-8:30pm). Rehearsals begin Sept 16 or 18 and will conclude on November 18 or 20. We will be making time to hold virtual, social gatherings for both groups to meet together during the semester.

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS & PREPARATION:
 

Auditions will be submitted virtually to auditions@wellesleytheatreproject.org. For the audition, you must submit a video of yourself performing 32 bars (or about 1 minute) of ANY song. This song should be one that best showcases your voice and full performance abilities. Don't forget to act while you sing! The song must be memorized and sung to an accompaniment track.

 

Lastly, you need to fill out the audition form at this link.
