Grade 4 Dance Showcase 2018

Dear Parents, April 2nd 2018

As part of the Arts curriculum, St. Clare Catholic School has organized musical theatre workshops for every grade and class, in the school. The Grade 4s have received singing, dancing, and dramatic instruction from a professional Arts director. Their number is called “Prologue”; it is from the Broadway Musical Little Shop of Horrors. This theatre production is about a meek flower shop assistant who discovers an unusual plant. This plant is a carnivore and it attracts a great deal of business for the struggling store. The music (MP3) and lyrics have been sent electronically to each student, at their OCSB account, and the students are expected to practice at home right up to the performance date. We will also be practicing often at school. As part of this special Arts unit, the students will be performing this piece of musical theatre in front of an audience, several times. They will perform this dance number at an Ottawa Catholic School Board Dance Showcase, in May. They will also perform the number for parents and students of the school community during Education Week, in May (dates to be announced). In order to perform the number in the best way possible, we are asking that each student track down an appropriate costume and bring it into the school, in preparation for the performances. The costumes should come to school on a hanger, labeled with the child’s name on each piece. Costumes can come to school inside a labeled garment bag. Places to look for the costume - family members, friends, Value Village, Costume Store, etc. Costume suggestions have been noted below. The costume should be delivered to the school on or before Friday, April 20, 2018 (FINAL DUE DATE).

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns,
