ATP Kids, the educational outreach program offered by the Alpine Theatre Project, is holding auditions for its fall session on Wednesday, Sept. 5.
Students in grades one through eight from all over the Flathead Valley are invited to audition for “The Lion King Jr,” based on the popular Disney musical film. Auditions will be held at 4:30 p.m. at the Whitefish Performing Arts Center on the corner of Spokane Avenue and Second Street in Whitefish.
Students will be given material at the audition to sing in groups. Callbacks will be held that evening. Classes/rehearsals will take place after school two to three times a week in Whitefish from 4 to 6 p.m. Performances will take place at the Whitefish Performing Arts Center on Oct. 20-21.
The African Savanna comes to life on stage with Simba, Nala, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale.
“The Lion King Jr” features such favorite songs as “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” “Hakuna Matata,” “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King,” and “Circle of Life.”
Now in its 10th year, the ATP Kids program has seen 1,500 students participating to date. Led by ATP’s Broadway professionals, ATP Kids is an after-school program of theatre education through performance.
Tuition for the ATP Kids Fall Session is $120. Full and partial scholarships are available to students who require assistance, thanks to donors and sponsors of ATP’s Educational Programming.
