Attention ALL SINGERS, DANCERS & MUSICAL THEATRE students, 2019 - 2020 Show choir auditions

April 29, 2019

Open auditions for all SHS (need more guys) Singers, Dancers and musical theatre students will be held on Tuesday & Thursday, May 14th and 16th starting at 6pm in commons area. Come out even if you’re unsure, you won’t regret it. Last year, during competition season, your award-winning IN Session showchoir competed at 5 competitions, we came back placing top 5 at each competition (in our division); bring back 12 trophies including, best soloist in a show, best combo, best choreography, best vocals and GRAND CHAMPIONS at our last competition. For the 2019-2020 season we are planning to have professional choreographers come in and work with us. We would love to continue our tradition of traveling around the state, competing and bringing home several trophies, including a 6 ft trophy.  Our show choir members also get to experience OF working TOGETHER to raise funds for the group, learn the value of teamwork, bonds like a family and getting our name out to the community. We generally only meet twice a week from 6:30pm to 8:30pm to practice.  

*We are also looking for instrumentalists to join our award-winning showchoir band.

5 reasons why you should join the showchoir as a band member:


  1. Play all styles of music

  2. The music is professionally arranged by an award-winning Show choir arranger, who will come in to work with you in a special jam session setting.

  3. You get to compete against other show choir bands for the Best Combo award at each competition we attend. (two years ago our showchoir band won 5 out of 6 Best combo awards, this past years we received the award at 2 competitions.)

  4. The show choir band rehearses one night a week, and can work around your schedule with an amazing band director alum, Joshua Peters

  5. Joining showchoir band would look good on a college resume, be used as volunteer hours.

If you like to sing, dance and/or like to be center of attention, IN Session award-winning Show choir wants YOU!!!  We perform, travel, compete, bond and make great memories that will last a lifetime.  Don’t let this awesome opportunity pass you by!!!
