DAY 1 UPDATES
K - 3: July 8th, 2019
Today, students had a blast! They toured the facility with their teachers and then got to know each other with some fun theatre games. After which, the campers learned a dance from the musical and did their 30 second auditions with Ms. Crystal and Ms. Greene. Additionally, students learned music from Ms. Srija for callbacks! We can't wait to work with all of your students!
Below are a few reminders as we prepare for day 2.
Tickets are for sale at rrpa.booktix.com. Seating is reserved. Today we sent out complimentary codes for you, as every registered child received 2 complimentary General Admission tickets. Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. Please wait to see which cast your student is cast in before purchasing tickets for the performances.
T-shirts were given out today. Unfortunately, some parents, when registering their students clicked on the wrong sizes. We did our best to accommodate appropriate sizes. Please wear the show shirts on THURSDAY for a company photo!
EXCLUSIVE T-SHIRT ORDERS: If you ordered an exclusive Mulan T-Shirt, they will be given out tomorrow!

LUNCH AND SNACK
At Broadway Bound's Youth camp, we make time for both a snack and lunch. This is a friendly reminder to ensure your child has packed a peanut-free snack AND lunch as well as their own utensils. It is also important that since the rehearsal process is energy consuming, the children should always carry their Mulan Jr. water bottle pre-filled with name labeled in sharpie at the beginning of each day
BINS AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES:
As previously requested in the newsletter, we ask that the students bring a small, clear, handheld bin that fits under the student's chairs. NO BACKPACKS are allowed. Today was an exception, as everyone was adjusting to this camp. Starting Wednesday we are not allowing backpacks or large bins without handles. We here at Broadway Bound stress the use of these bins for the organization, safety, and efficiency of this program. Linked below is the bin we would prefer you purchase.

LEARN THE MUSIC
Our wonderful Vocal Director Ms. Srija has been working on an official Youth Broadway Bound Mulan Jr. soundtrack with and without vocals for your child to rehearse with. This music will be provided in a Google Drive Link by tomorrow (7/9) at 5:00PM. It is mandatory that the students familiarize themselves with the music to Mulan Jr. (Kids Edition) as to create efficient in-class rehearsing.
MULAN, JR. CAST LIST
Casting is one of the hardest things we do here at RRPA. We take our time to discuss every student and think about where we place them so they will grow the most in the program. As a reminder, please help your child overcome any negative feelings they have. GRIT is the number one reason why performers are successful. They never give up. This is a great opportunity to discuss with your child how to overcome challenges if they are feeling some unpleasant emotions after casting.The casting process for Mulan Jr. (Kid's Edition) was one that was thought out carefully. The staff placed each student in a role that would best suit them and their journey of growth in this theatre environment. We cast solely based on their audition, ability to take direction and work ethic. There is absolutely NO FAVORITISM within the casting process. Furthermore, the staff stresses that every role onstage and offstage is equally important. We strive to create a positive learning environment for each camper.
HOW TO READ THE CAST LIST: Find your child’s name and the role they will be playing.
OFF BOOK/MEMORIZED: We are requesting that all students are memorizing by Friday, July 12th. However, students must be memorized by Monday, the 15th. Help students learn their lines and solos at home!
