Look for detailed fliers coming home with your student soon!

MP VARIETY SHOW AUDITIONS
Can your student sing? Dance? Perform in an original skit? Do you have a magician in your home? Would your student like to emcee a show?
If the answer is yes, the Meridian Park Elementary Variety Show auditions are scheduled at 3:45pm on December 8th and December 10th in the Music and Band Rooms. Auditions are open to all ages. We want to see another great Variety Show on January 9th at Shorewood High School Theater with our Meridian Park students!
Be aware that the audition schedule is created in advance of these audition dates. In order to be able to audition, all participating students must complete a Variety Show Audition Request Form, which includes parent consent (signature) and contact information.
We hope to see a lot of acts try out!
