Well will prepare the kids for their audition on the first week. We will discuss characters and help them to decide which song will be best for their audition. Audition sides will also be assigned and worked on. The second week of class will be the auditions.
A singing audition is not mandatory, however, it does let us know who is ready for a lead or a featured solo.
Casting is always a challenge. Although everyone can't be a lead, we will ensure everyone is featured and has their moment. Cast list's will be emailed within 5 days after the auditions.
I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for all of your hard work executing the Grease production. The show was fabulous! The costumes were adorable! The music was joyful! I am most impressed by your gentle and warm manner with the children. I was reluctant to enroll Ellamarie in a theatre class because I was worried it would be too high pressure and she would lose her love of performing. I remember as a child performing Annie and the director was constantly yelling at us. All of the children were petrified. Your direction in Jazz Hands provides such a supportive environment for the children to gently take risks on the stage. As a parent, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that.
From the overall production down to the individual attention paid to our four children, I could not have been happier with Jazz Hands Children's Theatre Camp. The directors of the camp have the amazing gift to bring out the best in my children. While my kids were stretched and grew in their artistic abilities, it was done in such a way that their excitement for camp never waned. As we look back over the events of the summer, the highlights definitely include their camp performances and the friendships and fun they had at Theatre Camp. We will definitely be participating again next year.
Thank you for investing in our kids!
Kimberly and Kaitlin attended the [Jazz Hands Summer Camp] Camp. I feel one of the most difficult part of children's theatre is maintaining a balance between putting on a quality production and giving every child, even those with little natural ability, an opportunity to feel important in the production. My children have participated in several childrens theatrical organizations your program is among those that succeeded in this balance. My children felt valued at your camp and that is more important than any theatrical skills they may have aquired.

I look forward to [Jazz Hands Summer Camp] coming to Coeur d'Alene every summer! They are great teachers and have boosted my confidence onstage. I have learned so many things from them like blocking, singing, and choreography. I used to be very afraid of getting onstage, but now I look forward to it, and it is all because of [Jazz Hands]!
Every year we are amazed by the top quality performances [Jazz Hands Children's Theatre] put on with children after only one week together. These camps are both fun and educational with the highest level of professionalism you will find anywhere. Our daughter truly looks forward to every day of this camp and it is worth every penny!
