Performance Block Pre-Requisites

Registration begins Wednesday, Sept 8, 2021Have you ever wondered what it is like to be in a Civic Mainstage production? Now you can find out! Our Performance Block classes for grades 2+ mimic the experience of a Civic Mainstage process – from audition to performance – in a condensed block of time! A professional staff of directors, stage managers, music director, choreographer, designers and technicians will take students through the entire process, culminating in two public performances for a paying audience on Grand Rapids Civic Theatre’s Meijer Majestic Stage.

Performance Block classes are intended to be an opportunity for active students to apply the skills they’ve been learning in classes and camps to their work as a performer. In order to ensure students are prepared for the rigor of the program, we require certain pre-requisites in order for a student to participate in Performance Block productions.  **Previous participation in the Performance Block does not count as a pre-requisite**

Please see the chart below to determine if your child has met the pre-requisite requirements. If you have any questions about their eligibility, please call the office at 616-222-6653. Performance Block Productions fill quickly – so don’t wait to register!

We do NOT make exceptions to these pre-requisites.

Registration can not be done online. Please contact the office to register for Performance Block classes at 616-222-6653.
