Our Directors Choice Chorus sings the Act I Finale and joins the entire company for the show finale. They rehearse with our artistic team prior to the show. Members of the Directors Choice Chorus include:
• The top ten Best Supporting Actor and top ten Best Supporting Actress nominees as scored by our adjudicators.
• Two more at-large representatives from each school, ideally a male and a female to help us keep a balance of voices.
If a school has five or more Best Supporting Actor and Actress nominees in the chorus, that school can send no at-large representatives. If a school has four nominees, the school can send us one at-large representative.
Additionally, we will announce the number of open positions, if any, to be filled by directors from other schools. The number of open positions will change from year to year, depending on the number of participating schools and the number of positions the program can accommodate. That announcement will be made April 15, 2019 for this year's program, or as near to that date as possible. Schools can nominate students for open positions at any time.
Nominations for Best Supporting Actor and Actress can be made on our nominating form (linked below). The nomination form for all other Directors Choice Chorus positions is also below.
Rehearsals for Directors Choice Chorus members will be April 27 & 28, and May 3 (7-10pm) & 4, 2019.* They will rehearse and perform with all students on May 4 from 10am through the close of the show. Students participating in the Directors Choice Chorus must complete a student registration form and be able to attend all rehearsals to participate.
*Rehearsal times are subject to change.
