     MHHS 2017 musical  -  "BEAUTY and the BEAST"
     
    To be eligible for this opportunity, you must be a member of one of our high school curricular performing groups during 1st semester:  band, orchestra, or choir.  You must also meet the expectations in the co-curricular handbook regarding grades & conduct.

    Audition materials & sign-ups will be available in the Middle School music hallway during Summer Band lessons:  

        Aug. 7-10, 14-17, 21-22      8am-1:30pm

    Auditions will be Monday, August 21 & Tuesday, August 22 from 3:30-8 pm in the high school choir room.  You will sign up to audition with 2-3 other people and nothing will have to be memorized.  If you are going to be gone during auditions, leave Miss Dangerfield a message at 437-3617, and she will get back to you about what to do.

    Rehearsals will be held Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6-9 pm.

    The number of rehearsals you are required to attend each week will be related to the size of part you have.  We do allow for school-related conflicts, but you are expected to schedule other lessons, appointments, and work around all required rehearsals & performances. You’ll get the official rehearsal schedule at our 1stcast meeting on September 5.

    You must be available at the following times.  If you can't make all of these, please do not audition.

          Oct. 30 & 31, Nov. 2   6-9 pm  (full cast w/pit orchestra & stage crew)

    CHOIR CO-CURRICULARS
                                
    In the MHHS choral department we offer four co-curricular ensemble opportunities.  Auditions for these groups will take place in late October.  Rehearsals will begin the week after the musical in preparation for the Holiday Concert. Students must be enrolled in choir, band or orchestra during the school day, in order to be eligible for membership in these ensembles.
     - Chordsmen is our grade 9-12 men's ensemble.  This group meets on Monday nights for an hour, either at 6:00 or    
        7:00.
     - Chamber Singers is our grade 9-12 women's ensemble.  This group also meets on Monday nights for an hour, either
        at 6:00 or 7:00.
     - Madrigal is a select group of singers from grades 10-12.  This is our smallest group, and sings acapella music, often    from the Renaissance period.  These are our "early birds," as they rehearse on Friday mornings at 7:00!
     - Vocal Jazz is a select group of singers from grades 10-12.  This group sings music from the big band era as well as    more recent charts, in close harmony.  This ensemble meets on Friday mornings at 7:30.
