Attention Dowds School Families!
Our programs for the first half of the school year have been cancelled due to COVID. I am working on ways to provide virtual performances and/or opportunities for the students to share the songs they learn in music class. Stay tuned for more information as I learn what will work for us this year. When the time comes to reinstate programs, I will follow the guidelines outlined below when casting parts for shows.
Singing, Speaking, and Dance Parts for Musicals...
The “posting of parts” for musicals often prompts a lot of questions from students and families. I always dread having to disappoint the students who do not get a part when I have tryouts. With the amount of participation we have, there is no scenario where I can give a part to every student who tries out for each musical. There are multiple things to consider when I choose roles, so I want to answer some of the most frequently asked questions that families and students have asked in the past. The answers should explain part of the process. If you have further questions, feel free to call me or email me. Click on the Questions & Answers Newsletter button below for details.
