2021-2022 Upper School Performing Arts Auditions

Hello Students and Parents,

It is hard to believe but it is time for us to turn our attention to the 2021-2022 Visual and Performing Arts Season. We are currently in the midst of planning an exciting and full season of performances, concerts, and exhibitions. Although we typically announce our full season in April, this year we are waiting to announce until the fall when we have a clearer sense of what safety protocols will entail and how that may impact the season. While we will not audition for the fall theatre productions until August, we will audition for dance placement, Dance Company, and Encore this spring. Please read about the processes below and feel free to contact the directors listed here with any questions. We look forward to working with you and developing your talents at Kinkaid!

Sincerely,
Scott Lambert
Director of Visual and Performing Arts

Upper School Musical: 

BRIGHT STAR

Inspired By A True Story

Music, Book & Story by Steve Martin
Music, Book & Story by Edie Brickell

A Live Streamed Event!

Saturday, February 27 at 10:30 AM and 2:30 PM
Sunday, February 28 at 2:30 PM

Tickets On Sale Now at kinkaid.booktix.com!

This Live-Streaming experience will include three-camera coverage of each performance, complete with close-ups and moving camera shots, delivering a unique at-home viewing experience for our audience. *Please note: due to copyright laws the show will not be recorded. The only opportunity to see the live-streamed performance is to watch it live in the moment.

Inspired by a true story, the contemporary musical Bright Star tells an unforgettable tale of love, loss, and redemption set in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, she spots something special about him, mentoring Billy as he searches for his identity as a Southern writer.  Their relationship awakens her memories of the rural life she left behind in the 1920’s, and the child she once lost.  Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past, while Billy sets out to forge his future —and what she discovers has the power to transform both of their lives.  The Tony-nominated bluegrass score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell features beautiful melodies, heartfelt lyrics, and a hopeful message for troubled times.  If you know the story, you’ll have a good story to tell!

Kinkaid School The Misanthrope

Upper School Play

THE MISANTHROPE

By Molière, translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur

Alceste hates polite society, but the woman he loves is the queen bee of the popular crowd. Célimène says she loves him back, but that’s what she tells everybody! This improbable romance is set against the backdrop of gossip and power plays in 17th Century France, where words are brandished like weapons and status is defined by style. One of the best-known comedies of the world stage, Molière’s classic asks a perennial question: Is it better to be bluntly honest or falsely kind? And can love find a way in between?

 

 

Kinkaid All in the Timing

KinkADE Underground

ALL IN THE TIMING

By David Ives

Winner of the John Gassner Playwriting Award. This critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of comedies combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun. “Like sketches for some hilarious, celestially conceived revue. The writing is not only very funny, it has density of thought and precision of poetry…ALL IN THE TIMING is by a master of fun. David Ives spins hilarity out of words.” —NY Times. 

KinkADE Underground is an opportunity for our advanced acting students to create an Actor Driven Event (no sets, no lights, no costumes) while working on more thought-provoking literature that challenges both actor and audience to critically think about issues.
