Paper Moon Drama is an after school theater program for children in grades 1st – 5th ages 6 – 11 years old. Our focus is on acting but we do work on musicals from time to time. This particular situation with “Annie” is very last minute as the musical accompaniment that we ordered is not the movie version that the kiddos are so familiar with and they are really struggling trying to work with it. The kiddos are also very young and of varied singing abilities so only some of them are able to pull off singing accapella at this point. We like to give as many opportunities to as many kids as possible and for them to all have a great experience and a chance to shine, we don’t take ourselves too seriously as we like everyone to just have fun and be comfortable but I want to give them their best chance to do their best. We have never brought in an accompanist before and I’m a little wary introducing one so late in the process but it may be the right solution to their struggles and the experience would be great for them. If you’re confident in your abilities, are available during our rehearsal and performance times, can learn the music quickly, and have smiling patience while working with 24 enthusiastic young people, please contact us right away.
