Seventh and eighth grade students are invited to audition for the award-winning show choir, Showtime. This junior high show choir conducts auditions in the spring of the previous year for its competition choir. Over the year, Showtime students learn the proper techniques of singing, performance skills, as well as sight singing and the basic elements of music theory.
Showtime students participate in many different events throughout the school year. One of the main goals of the group is preparing for the show choir competition season in January-March. The group also participates in a sacred, classical Christmas concert along with the high school choral students. At the end of the school year, they perform two spring shows with the high school students as well. One is the Spring Spectacular, based on the show choir music. The other is a Spring Choral Concert, in which the choir performs choral literature in a variety of genres.
Showtime works with a nationally known choreographer to produce their competition show each year. This show is presented in competitions all over the southeast. The students are also given the opportunity to benefit from nationally recognized vocal clinicians throughout the year. The show choir competition show features costuming, sets, and the chance to perform with a live band of musicians. A student-based tech crew, along with parent volunteers help make the show run smoothly.
