Jefferson students may audition for the spring musical that is presented in April. Depending on the show, the cast can be anywhere from 50 to 100 students. Many shows can have larger casts if ensemble work is used. Although the ensemble role is a smaller role, it is also important to the overall sound.
Approximately 30 technical crew students are needed for each show with various duties such as stage manager, lights and sound board operators, set/scenery movers, prop managers, hair, makeup and costume helpers, ushers, and paint/set design crew.
Mr. Colbert is the music and staging director. He coordinates with all the other directors, actors and crew members to create a total vision for the show. His primary job is to teach musical parts and stage blocking. He also gives character advice to the actors.
Mrs. Krause is the assistant director. This person's primary job is to help with staging, choreography and other things related to the organization of dates and rehearsals.
