BE UNIQUE AND HAVE FUN DEVELOPING YOUR ACT FOR THE SHOW! 
– Please try and choose something unique and different; poetry readings, comedy, magic tricks, story-telling, instrumental pieces, multi-cultural dances, etc.

-All performances, lyrics, dance movements, language, and costumes MUST BE elementary school appropriate and respectful. Remember to check out KidzBop for some family- friendly alternatives.

– Acts will be accepted on a first-come basis. There will be no repetition of songs so we may work with kids to combine acts.

– The songs, “Faith” by Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande, “Jump in the Line” by Harry Belafonte, “Jurassic Park: Main Title Theme” by John Williams, “Jai Ho” by A.R. Rahman and “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman will be used for our two big group numbers so they will not be allowed for any individual acts.

-Check out this link to get lyrics for “This is Me”

-Parents/Guardians: please note that if students do not finalize their acts, they will be part of the big group numbers only.

– There are time limits: solo acts are 1 MINUTE, group acts about 2 MINUTES. (Solo acts will be cut off at 1:10, and group acts of 2-3 people at 2:05, NO EXCEPTIONS!)

-Enjoy putting together your act, come prepared to your try-out and good luck!
