Will there be a Performance company in 20/21?

In the face of the new world we live in with Covid-19 making theatre sittings a thing of the past for the foreseeable future, we decided to re-invent our Spectacle Blue Performance Company experience. 

In the 20/21 season we are taking our beloved theatre production of 'Peregrina's Circus" and turning it into a MOVIE!  Audiences will be able to sit back and enjoy the show from the comfort of their own living room! Start the popcorn!

Performers will still learn the valuable lessons that the performance company experience has always taught:

 - cooperation

 - performance skills

 - teamwork

 - community

 - character and acting skills

 - dedication

 - commitment

 - accountability to the team

We are excited to be working in partnership with Gibbs Media on this exciting new project!

Will there be student showcase productions?

We traditionally do 2 student showcases per year.  An Informal Student Showcase at the end of the Fall Semester and our larger full-scale 'Under The Big Top' student showcase production in June.

In the 20/21 season, we will continue with this practice in a modified way due to the Covid-19 restrictions on theatre sittings.

Performance Company FAQ

Do I have to audition for the Performance Company?


Nope! We believe that every single one of us has magic in us....it's our job to help students believe that too! Participation is by registration.....there are some technical training requirements though!




What are the requirements to become a Performance Company Member?


Becoming a Performance Company Member is a pretty big decision. It's not just about the individual performer, it's really about a dedication to your fellow team members, a commitment to the project, and to what it means to be a member of the team. We ask that both potential Company Members AND parents understand and agree to commit to the MUSTS and REQUIREMENTS. The following is our list of MUSTS: 1. I am commited to attending scheuled weekly rehearsal becuase I know my team members are relying on me. 2. I will conduct myself as a member of the team and not as an individual seeking the spotlight 3. I understand that being a member of the Performance Company makes me a leader in my Circus Community. I will be a leader both in and out of the studio to better my community and be an example to those who look up to me. 4. I will uphold the values of Spectacle Blue as a place for 'growing stellar human beings' and be not only an example of those values every day, but a voice when those values are compromised. The following is a list of REQUIREMENTS: 1. Performance Company members are required to be registered in a minumum of 2 aerial technique classes. 2. Performance Company members are required to be registered in the weekly Conditioning class. 3. Performance Company members are required to be at weekly Performance Company rehearsals 4. Performance Company members are required to be available for additional filming days as scheduled. Every performer will not be needed at each additional filming day, but that exact schedule will not be known until we are closer to shooting days.




How old do I need to be to be in the Performance Company?


Performance Company members range from 8-18!





Student Showcase FAQ

What is the difference between the Informal Showcase & the Under The Big Top?


Our Informal Showcase marks the end of the Fall Semester and is an opportunity to showcase the skills students have learned in a creative way. There are no costumes,make-up or hair requirements for this showcase. Students wear their black body suits and leggings for this experiece. The Under The Big Top student showcase marks the end of the season and is a full production including costumes, make-up, hair, full lighting and sound design. Students have typically had considerably more time rehearsing and creating these acts than they do in the Informal Showcase. They have delved farther into the creation process than just a showcasing of their technical skills.




Is there an extra cost to these Showcases?


All costs associated with the showcases are included in your fees including access to the edited video productions. Typically the only extra cost to you is the ticket price, but as we are currently not able to have a theater sittings and are doing video showcases only, there is no additional charge.




Can we see the students perform live?


Typically these showcases are performed live, but with the theater sitting restrictions in place due to Covid-19, there will be no live peformances in the 20/21 season. Should the status of Covid-19 change before the Under The Big Top allowing for a theatre sitting, we will make that decision at that time.
