singin’ in the rain, jr 

SPONSORED BY: Vernal’s TaVaci School of Performing Arts

MUSICAL – The “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Betty Comden and Adolph Green, from their original award-winning screenplay in Singin’ in the Rain JR. Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make Singin’ in the Rain JR. a guaranteed good time for performers and audience members alike.

Singin’ in the Rain JR. has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline — the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.

Approximate Duration: 90 Minutes

We are so excited for “Singin’ in the Rain, JR” this summer! 

A couple things for you to know about:

– Ages 8-13 are invited to participate in our Youth Audition Workshop on May 31.
This workshop will be the perfect opportunity to learn about auditions. We will talk about the audition form, what to wear, who you will see, how to choose a song, and what to expect from cold reads and a dance audition. This is a great chance to get all audition questions answered so you can feel your best at your next audition. 

– Ages 8-16 are invited to participate in tap classes taught by Taunia Wheeler at Powerhouse Dance Studio.
Held once a week in June, these classes will give you a jump start in learning tap steps and technique. This class is NOT required to audition for “Singin’ in the Rain, JR” but will be a fun way to learn this fantastic dance genre. 
This class is very generously being offered for FREE to 8-16 year olds auditioning for “Singin’ in the Rain, JR”. Please talk with your student before they attend about appropriate behavior and being respectful to the teacher & space.
Classes will be held at Powerhouse Dance Studio,
Wednesdays 5p to 6p, starting June 7, running for 4 weeks (until June 28).

Youth ages 14-18 can apply to be on our Youth Production Team by filling out the following application: https://forms.gle/pVQ3sw4S4UZ3Wntj7




1. Confidence. It sounds simple but it takes practice. Walk in the door with your held head high. Be wary of shuffling feet. Do NOT apologize if you’re nervous, not feeling well, or having a bad day. Leave it outside the door. You are being sized up the minute you walk in, so practice good posture and body language before you arrive. And don’t forget to smile – that’s the lasting impression you want to leave.

2. Connection. Make one with the character you’re portraying. Be memorized on your audition material.

3. Find your spot. Wherever it is, there’s usually an X on the floor, done with tape. Find it and go stand there to start, but don’t stay rooted to that X. Remember, the space is yours for two whole minutes. So feel free to move around.

4. Stick to the time limit. You get 60 seconds starting from the first note. And 60 seconds is plenty. So as to be respectful of everyone’s time, cut down your song. Rehearse with a stopwatch to measure how long it is. Then when you get to the audition, you won’t be rushed. And if they cut you off, don’t take it personally. It doesn’t mean you’re bad, it means they need to give everyone else time to show too. This is a great way to show consideration for the production team and other auditioners, and show that you can follow instructions which is essential in the theater.

5. Act. Acting means TO DO, not to talk. Find your actions and play them! Think about opposites that can be shown. Yelling isn’t the only way to show hatred or anger. Sometimes being quiet as you make your point is a powerful display of emotion. Remember to show variety. Feel the levels and dynamic in the scene.
