The Lion King

We are excited to announce the 2018 Shelly Park School Production of The Lion King Junior. There will be three shows performed on Tuesday 4th September, Wednesday 5th September and Thursday 6th of September.

The production will involve a combination of acting, singing and dancing. Students are not expected to be proficient in all these areas and we strongly encourage all students to audition. While there are a number of characters who have speaking lines, a vital component of this musical is the ensemble - those who create the atmosphere and help set the scene. Participating in a production will be a rich and rewarding experience for your child, regardless of what role they are given. It will encourage the development of confidence, creativity, teamwork and theatre skills.

Auditions will be held at lunchtimes on Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th of February. Before we get underway with auditions and rehearsals, it is important that everyone understands the high level of commitment that is expected from students to ensure a wonderful performance.

Rehearsals will be held every Monday lunch time and Thursday afternoon from 3:15 - 4:15pm. Please note that your child will not be expected to attend every rehearsal and will need to check their rehearsal schedule. There will also be two half days of rehearsals during the April school holidays and these dates are to be announced. Closer to the performance, weekend rehearsals may be held to ensure that students are prepared to deliver a polished performance. If students are unable to make the rehearsal, communication must be made to Mrs Bowers as soon as possible. Please make sure that the performance dates are marked clearly in your personal calendar.

Please read and complete the audition information form if your child is interested in participating.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mrs Bowers - mandyb@shellypark.school.nz


As we go through the rehearsal process, we will be uploading rehearsal music for you to download and use at home. Unfortunately, sometimes this does not always work depending on the device that you have. If this is the case, the link below will take you to the whole rehearsal soundtrack.
