Join Wyoming Fine Arts Center veteran choreographer Steve Irwin and music director Nancy Huey  in this year’s production of Lion King KIDS.

Welcome to The Lion King Experience!

Disney’s The Lion King has captivated the imagination of audiences around the world and now you have the opportunity to take part in this one-of-a-kind musical with our two most favorite theater teachers in the whole wide world. The African savanna comes to life on with Simba, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle… and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale.

The Lion King Experience features a rigorous curriculum designed to introduce the student to a wide range of theatrical skills. This program has been developed to EXPLORE, CREATE and SHARE the arts with all students.

Final 45 minute production is on Friday, the last hour of the camp.

Notes:

Due to the camp structure and educational nature of our programs, this production may be edited for language and duration, and is age appropriate.

NOTE: Steve Irwin and Nancy Huey are teaching both productions.

 

IMPORTANT AUDITION INFORMATION:

Please note that EVERYONE WHO SIGNS-UP AND AUDITIONS WILL HAVE A PART. The auditions are only to assist us in assigning parts.

AUDITION DATES:

  • Sunday 5/21 @ 1:00 – 2:00 PM
  • NEW TIME!!!! Friday 6/23 @ 4:30 – 6:00 (ish) – Audition is for July Camp only.

The audition process is very relaxed and the duration will depend on number of campers – it may take 60-90 minutes…

Each child should prepare a song (preferably from a show, such as “Seussical, JR.”, “Willy Wonka”, “The Little Mermaid”, “Aladdin”, “The Sound of Music”, “Wizard of Oz”, etc.). At the audition, the children will also take turns reading from the script and learn a song and choreography from the show.

Please note that everyone who auditions will get a role in the show! The auditions are simply to assist us in determining the best part for each child. The audition will last approximately 60-90 minutes.

 

SCRIPTS and PRACTICE SOUNDTRACK

You will receive a copy of the libretto at the audition (must be returned to us after the production – so take a good care of your copy!) You can also pick-up a copy of it at our office, or, download the PDF version of the libretto (see the link below).

  • SCRIPTS: Scripts are available for download HERE. This is our DropBox folder (music is also there). In the folder, click on appropriate files to download the pdf files of the scripts. They are at the bottom of the folder, below the music. You will be able to also pick up a script at the Fine Arts Center office from Claire at your convenience. For quicker access, we encourage you to utilize the download option. YOU DON’T NEED MEMBERSHIP TO DROPBOX TO ACCESS FILES. JUST EX OUT OF ANY POPUPS.
  • AUDIO: Audio tracks are available for download HERE. We will not make cd copies. If you don’t have a way to download, let us know.  YOU DON’T NEED MEMBERSHIP TO DROPBOX TO ACCESS FILES. JUST EX OUT OF ANY POPUPS.
  • IF you decide to sign-up for a free DropBox account, please include the following email as the referring email – it will give us more free storage, and it won’t cost you anything. Referring email — Director@MusicArtDance.org.

 

Anyone registered for the camp MUST audition (in person preferred). If you cannot make these dates and time but still want to participate in the camp, please let us know. Video upload may be accepted for students who can not make the audition times, or for students coming from out of town. Student should sing 2 songs songs of their choosing on the video (more details on which songs TBD in May). However, for best experience make every attempt to make one of the two audition times.

If you sign-up for the camp AFTER the audition and assignment of parts, you will still be able to participate and be assigned various chorus parts.

NOTE: If you miss the audition dates, you can still register for the camp. As main roles are determined 2-3 weeks prior to the camp, if you are in that window, you may still upload to YouTube your 2 minute audition video representing your singing of your 2 pieces. This will give the directors the ability to appropriately assign the parts to you, as applicable, but does not guarantee you a main role. If you are signing up less than 2-3 weeks prior to camp, we still need your video and you will be assigned an appropriate chorus part. Remember that this is an educational experience, and participating in the production will benefit the student regardless of the part assigned.

NOTE: Once you upload your video, remember to contact the office and email us the link to the video.

NOTE: Video settings on the upload have to be either ‘Public’ or ‘Unlisted’ for us to be able to view it. Do not make your videos ‘Private’ as that does not allow for viewing to anyone but you. If you are concerned about privacy, make the video ‘Unlisted’ and then after you get your part assignment, you can either delete the video or make it ‘Private’. If we can’t see your video, you will be assigned parts at the Director’s discretion on the first day of the camp and will be assigned chorus parts of which there are many.

Please, sign-up early.Thank you!
