We had a teacher today ask what the assigned ‘theatre captains’ can do – students who get assigned to be in charge of our visit!

Usually Year 6ers…

Here is what we came up with!

• Read our website, and the teacher support documents.
• Learn Fly Away and choreograph a dance, or look on facebook to see the Alpha SHows videos where you can see almost a full fly away being performed and learn our choreography. Then encourage others during the show to perform it with the cast.
• Encourage the audience to yell out and make a whole bunch of noise (at the appropriate times) during the show Рthe cast always love a rock concert like audience! But then help to quieten down people at more dramatic moments to get the full effect of the character journeys
‚Ä¢ practice and think about what they might like to ‘wish’ for in their own life, and encourage other students to come up with a list. So that they have a few ideas of what they might wish for during the show and have a REASON to delve into the emotions (that bad ones) that might block them from getting what they desire.
• prepare a thank you for the cast that they deliver after question time on the microphone
• Come to the hall (with a teacher) during set up and help or learn about things (time permitting), the set, how it works etc
• play full out during the show Рprove that they love performing by performing themselves from the audience! cast will gravitate to interact with those with the most energy automatically.
• Write a review for the school newsletter, come interview the cast, take pictures, videos etc.
• send in to local newspaper, organise the media (local paper or whatever, news tv) to come film the show
• encourage students to get on the website (forum.alphashows.com.au) or facebook (if permitted by parents) and write to the cast
