The Summit High School Spring Musical will be Disney’s Mary Poppins. We are very excited to do this show, we know it will be a great show for the community and our students alike. For this show we will need to cast 2 children (a male and female) in lead roles and we will have a small children’s chorus. As we have done in previous shows we will audition students from our own Summit Elementary Schools to fill these roles. The auditions will be at the Summit High School on December 9th starting at 3:30. The High School students will audition the week prior.  See below for  audition information. If you have any questions kindly reach out to us and we will help you as best we can. This has always been a great experience to work with our elementary students and we look forward to another great collaboration.
