Variety Show @ Walsh Middle

Thurs 4/5 Dress Rehearsal

Fri 4/6 SHOW

eSignup is Open!

Students, parents, teachers! It's to time to sign up for the Variety Show, to be held on Friday, April 6th at Walsh Middle School! Plan your Act. Be a Star. Join-the-Act. Be part of the Show!
Signup is via the web: Hemenway Variety Show – Registration 2018. No forms will be accepted beyond March 2, 2018.

As the Variety Show has been so popular, a lottery registration will be conducted. As forms are submitted, preference will be given to the first acts registered (and, larger groups) to give as many kids as possible a chance to be on stage.  This being said more group acts will be invited to participate than solo acts.  Encourage your child to form a group.  If they would like to sing a solo, they can create a solo part within their group.  If they want a solo instrumental part, they can create that within their group.  The remaining group and solo acts will be drawn by grade/lottery.
 
Back by popular demand: Master of Ceremonies (MC) role for 5th Graders. This is a “team” role where different 5th MCs introduce several acts (student names, type of act and a creative comment or joke) while dressed up. Depending on the interest, we will select pairs of MCs that are not in an Act prior to allowing those that are in an Act to allow greater participation in the show. The MCs will be responsible for creating and submitting materials prior to the show.   
 
This will be our seventh year offering Join-the-Act, a group act that welcomes all kinds of talent, and is specifically for any student who doesn’t have their own act or for any student whose act didn’t get a slot in the show. Join-The-Act has been a huge success and truly offers all students, who have the chops, the chance to be on stage! This is great for Kindergartners and First Graders that have never experienced the stage. Practice is after school and we have a fabulous choreographer.
 
Stars can sing, dance or tumble, offer a bit of comedy, play musical instruments or be a MC:
Join-the-Act
Form a Group Act with your peers
Solo Act
Be an MC  (5th Graders)

Be part of the Crew (parents) via the sign-up genius HERE.

Rules to Consider: 
Performers may only be in one Act and must be students, parents of students or teachers of Hemenway School.
Participation is assigned on a lottery system, unfortunately, not all students who register may be able to participate. We encourage students to form groups and be inclusive.
Acts must be 2-minutes or less in length and the performance will be interrupted if it runs longer.
Participants must be able to attend both the dress rehearsal on Thursday, April 5th and the show on April 6th both being held at Walsh Middle School.
