When are auditions?
September 8th- September 12th By video submission
How do I prepare for an audition?
Prepare to sing part of a song (under 1 minute). Please do not choose a song from Cats but, rather, something with a similar musical style. We have found that, when working on a song from the show, kids get too attached to that role and put too much time, effort and money into perfecting the song. It creates an uneven playing field and increases disappointment if they do not get that part.
Who is Focusfish?
FOCUSfish is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, working in schools since 2003. Kristy Beauvais, Focusfish founder, has been sharing her exciting choreography and directing skills with St James for many years, in the Immersion program and now as our theatre program.

Our soccer program has been so successful over these past 15 years, we have added more sports! We will use the same winning formula. Experienced, professional coaches use sports as a vehicle to teach self-confidence, sportsmanship, communication and other socialization skills through FUN games and age appropriate skill exercises.
JMG espouses the Growth Mindset v Fixed Mindset philosophy. All children learn and grow differently with different timing. We give personal attention to both child and parent on how to get through those times where it seems that your child is not engaged or emotions are running high.
All children go through this. It is up to us to recognize and understand what is happening to them at every step of their development. We believe that perseverance, grit and communication are the most important things for a child to learn at a young age for healthy development!
