Winter/Spring 2017 Season Announcement

We are happy to announce auditions, rehearsals and show dates for the next two stageGR productions: Disney's "The Lion King Jr." and "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee"!  

"The Lion King Jr." is open to students in grades 6 through 9. "Spelling Bee" is for high school students, grades 9 through 12.  Both shows will be performed at the Meijer Theater in the Grand Rapids Public Museum.  9th graders are permitted to audition for both shows, but they must be registered for BOTH shows.

Combined auditions will be at Trinity United Methodist Church, 4PM-7PM on Wednesday January 18, with callbacks at 4PM-6PM the following day.   stageGR takes pride in being inclusive, allowing participation by all desiring students.  However because of performance venue limitations, the cast size is strictly limited.  We really don't want to turn anyone away at auditions, so pre-registration is strongly advised!  Our ticketing system will automatically indicate "sold out" when the limit is reached.  

We are also happy to announce that we now have online registration options for everyone!   While credit card pre-payment is recommended and the most convenient, our Register Now feature has an option to pay tuition by cash or check at the time of the audition.   Our website also has an online application for Financial Assistance Requests, for those families who need full or partial scholarships or just more flexible payment terms.    

Rehearsals for The Lion King Jr. will start on February 2, until the three performances on March 3 and 4.   Spelling Bee rehearsals will begin on March 20 (taking a hiatus for Spring Break) and culminating in three performances on May 11, 12, and 13. 

Get registered as soon as possible and spread the word to your friends!  We look forward to seeing you again - working hard, having fun. and producing more great theatre experiences!
