Edgewood Spring Play - Lion King, Jr
Important note from the PTO Board and Directors
Thank you for your patience as we discussed how to manage the overwhelming interest in the Edgewood performance of The Lion King Kids. To accommodate more students, we have decided to have two casts of twenty (40 children total) who will rehearse together but perform separately. This is the highest number that is manageable for our all-volunteer directors and support staff.
As of today, we have 40 children signed up for the play. We will be auditioning everyone on the current sign-up, including those on the waitlist. Auditions are scheduled to decide parts and not for selection - all students currently registered will receive a role in the play (speaking or ensemble). Next week, we will be reaching out to those signed-up to ensure those signed up can meet rehearsal requirements and parent volunteer requirements.
We have created a new waitlist (click here) which will be used in case currently registered students decide not to participate. This sign-up also includes a sign-up for 5th-grader students interested in stage crew.
We appreciate your understanding as we navigated this process for the first time and will make changes in future theater offerings for students to make the process clearer.
