Spring 2020: Disney's High School Musical Jr.

THIS CLASS IS ONLY OPEN TO STUDENTS AT ORINDA INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL.

Disney Channel's smash hit movie musical comes to life on your stage in Disney’s High School Musical JR. Now updated to the convenient binder version! Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High must deal with issues of love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extra curricular activities. The show’s infectious, danceable songs are sure to engage performers and audiences alike.

It’s the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes all find their cliques. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. The couple cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical. Although many students resent the threat posed to the "status quo," Troy and Gabriella’s alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

REGISTRATION POLICIES

Registrations are processed in the order received. Registrations are accepted until the class is full, or until the class begins, whichever happens first. If a class is full, you will be given the opportunity to be placed on the waitlist for the cast of your choice.

You will receive an email confirmation after registering online. Closer to the start date of the class we will email further details confirming dates, times, and other information.

If a student needs to switch casts please do not contact BACT, instead, please contact Jeanette at theatermanager@orinda.k12.ca.us

CANCELLATION POLICIES:

If you cancel your registration two weeks or more prior to the start date, you will be issued a full refund less a $25 administrative fee.
If you cancel your registration within two weeks of the first day of class, there will be no refunds unless your spot can be filled by a student on the waiting list. If we are able to fill your space, you will receive a full refund less a $50 administrative fee.

To request a refund, please contact the BACT office at 510.296-4433 or classes@bactheatre.org

There are ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS after the first day of class.

If BACT must cancel the class due to low enrollment you will receive a full refund.

New material is learned every rehearsal day and it can be challenging for absent students to catch up on missed rehearsals. The progress and cohesion of the cast as a whole is also impacted by absences. Like in sports, the cast ("ensemble") works together as a team and can only succeed with every single member participating each week!

Additionally, with only so many rehearsals, students who miss classes may not be placed in scenes or songs they missed as there is not enough rehearsal time to re-stage.

The last two weeks of our programs are critical in getting our show together. Two weeks before show time, it is vital that all participants are present there to do a final run-through before introducing technical elements. Our final two rehearsals are known as a "technical rehearsals" or "tech." This is when we will add costumes, scenery, props, lighting, and sound elements that we have not worked with yet. Navigating these new elements is exciting and we need everyone there to succeed in this endeavor!
