Kids Ensemble Information

 

The Kids Ensemble is one of the more unique and endearing aspects of the Burns Park Players.  Burns Park Elementary students from Grades 1st - 5th have the opportunity to participate in our annual show, performing alongside the talented and supportive adult cast.  There are NO auditions for the Kids Ensemble, and anyone interested in learning about musical theater is welcome to join us.

 


If you have a child participating in the Kids Ensemble, one adult in your family needs to (1) Become a BPP member, (2) participate in the production as cast or crew.  If you have not signed up, please contact our production team to learn more and get an assignment


Kids Ensemble Costumes 

Costumes for the Kids Ensemble is an important part of the experience and our creative team has worked hard to make it special! Ultimately, the goal is to keep costs as low as possible for all costumes, make the process easy and efficient for families, and create the best looking kids ensemble we can!
 

Rehearsals

Rehearsals take place at Burns Park Elementary, during weekday lunch periods in January and February. Each day is assigned to a different grade, so you can expect your child/ren to rehearse one lunch period per week. Our kids rehearsal crew will be finalizing the schedule throughout December, and we will share that with all of you once it is complete so you will know which day/s are assigned to your child/ren as soon as possible.

 

In addition to daytime lunch rehearsals, there will be certain evening rehearsals that will incorporate the child ensemble.
