Hey teens... Fridays @ The 5th doesn’t stop just because we’re all stuck inside!
Join us for FRIDAYS @ THE 5TH: Long Distance!
A FREE online event for students, 4 PM, every Friday THIS WEEK, May 29:
"THE ESSENTIAL ENSEMBLE"
with Sophie Franco, Nik Hagen, Rico Lastrapes, & Sarah Russell
The ensemble is the backbone of a show—filled with tireless, magic chameleons who are vital to the storytelling and are constantly juggling tracking sheets, quick changes, swing tracks, and alto harmonies—all the while, seamlessly inviting the audience to suspend their disbelief and jump into the world of the show.
Panelists Sarah Russell, Nik Hagen, Rico Lastrapes, and Sophie Franco know that being an “ensemblist” takes strength, determination, creativity and patience—and this group of ENSEMBLE ALL STARS will be giving us the inside scoop.
Remember there are no small parts—and most likely it's 50 different exits and entrances, 6-minute dance combinations and miraculous costumes changes… you get the point.
Join us for this special Q&A and tech-facilitated “group hug” for Washington state theater teens. Rehearsals and performances might be cancelled, but the spontaneous musical numbers MUST GO ON!
