• Welcome to the Boyce Middle School

    Musical Theatre Page!

     

     

    The Boyce Musical Theatre programs are open to any interested fifth or sixth grade student at Boyce. No auditions are necessary to be in the show unless students are interested in being considered for a solo speaking and/or singing part. While being in Chorus is not a prerequisite for the Musical Theatre program, it is highly recommended that students participate in Fifth or Sixth Grade Chorus so that they can learn how to demonstrate proper vocal technique to be better prepared for auditions.
     
    Auditions and rehearsals will begin after the December Choral concert. More information will come in December via Remind. As the show dates approach, we will be requiring additional rehearsals after school to help prepare, mostly occurring the three weeks leading up to the show. I look forward to another great year of musical performances!
      
     
     
    Does your child want to participate in Chorus and/or Musical Theatre at Boyce? Please complete the following tasks:
     
     
     
    2. Register for Mrs. Schetley's Remind notifications. This is my primary mode of communication with parents/guardians regarding calendars, concert dates, rehearsal changes, etc. You may sign up to receive text messages, emails, or both to fit your individual needs. There are separate Chorus and Musical Theater notifications since some children are not involved in both programs. More than one parent/guardian may sign up to receive alerts. Please email Mrs. Schetley at jschetley@uscsd.k12.pa.us if you need help registering.
     
     
     
    3. If you do not already have them on file with the district, please consider submitting your volunteer clearances so that you may help out with any rehearsals, concerts, performance, and/or field trip needs the choral/musical theatre programs may have throughout the year. Please refer to the link HERE for the district's guidelines regarding volunteer clearances and submitting them to Central Office.
     
     

    **ATTENTION CURRENT MUSICAL THEATRE MEMBERS**
    There will be NO before-school rehearsals during 2-hour delays, periods of active snow, or in declining road conditions. It is not worth the risk, please stay safe!
