Caroling Tomorrow!

​For Caroling Veterans ONLY:

Our Caroling Performance is tomorrow, Wednesday 12/7 at 7:00pm.  Call time is 6:45- I'd like every one to be there early to check in and warm up their voices.

We are performing at the St. James Rehabilitation Center (275 Moriches Rd). It it the building that has a flag pole in the front circle and is closest to Mills Pond Elementary.  

Please wear your Red Singers Shirts, any type of bottoms, with any fun festive accessories! :)​

Parents are welcome to stay and watch but will have to stand in back and sides of room.  Please try to limit to one parent per Singer due to lack of space.  

Thank you everyone! See you tomorrow at 6:45!

Broadway Bonanza!!!

November 2016

Dear 5th Grade Students,

            Curtain Up!!! Light the Lights!!!  It is time for our annual 5th Grade Broadway Bonanza to begin.  There will be an audition process for main parts of the show.  If you are not interested in having a main part (i.e. Dorothy, Simba, etc.) but want to be in the production (munchkin, chorus, back-up dancer, etc.), you do not have to audition but you must come to the first meeting to sign-up!
            The first meeting for all 5th grade students interested in participating in any aspect of the production on Thursday, December 8th @ 8:00am in the Multipurpose Room.  We will run through the audition pieces and start our audition process.  We are auditioning in groups first and then individually.  There are plenty of parts to be filled so don’t be shy!! (*ACE participants, go to ACE first! You will come to the MPR when you are done with your assignment at ACE.)

            Our second meeting will be Wednesday, December 14th at 8:00 am in the Multipurpose Room. We will continue evaluating all students in small groups and individually auditioning soloists.  If you are not interested in a solo part, you do not need to come to this meeting.  *We may need extra time to audition so please keep Thursday, December 15th open.  We will let you know on the 14th if you are needed for the 15th.  Thank you!*

            A list of the main parts and the audition pieces can be found on Mrs. Braunreuther’s website.  To access the website please log on to, musicwithmrsb.blogspot.com and click on the Broadway Bonanza tab

            This is a large commitment and you be required to be present at all rehearsals and all the performance.  Starting on January 9th, 2017 we will meet every Monday after-school until 4:30pm and every Wednesday morning before-school starting at 8:00am. Rehearsals will be held in the Old Gym.

On Monday, March 27th, we will hold our mandatory dress rehearsal until 6:00pm.  Our performance dates are, April 3rd and 4th at 7:00 pm (call time will be 6:15pm). We will also have a day performance on the 3rd to perform for the school.

            We look forward to your participation in this brave endeavor!  If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Christa Braunreuther, Mrs. Kathy DeBono, Mrs. Melissa Biangazzo, or Mrs. Tracy McAlvin @smithtown.k12.ny.us.  We look forward to working with all of you soon.
