ACT ONE is Jr. Civic’s premiere performing troupe and our ambassador to the communities we serve. Made up of 30 talented young performers from throughout the region, this group meets regularly throughout the year and will participate in community events all over metropolitan Indianapolis. In past years, ACT ONE has performed at the Circle of Lights holiday event on Monument Circle and the Indianapolis 500 Festival Kids’ Day. Additionally, through our Perfect Harmony program (a partnership with Special Olympics of Indiana, ArtMix and the Joseph Maley Foundation) ACT ONE has performed regularly at the Special Olympics Opening Ceremonies for the state games in Terre Haute. This season promises to be just as exciting with performances planned throughout the year and an overnight trip in May! Repertoire focuses on songs and scenes from the Musical Theatre canon. Additionally, all ACT ONE participants will receive a 10% discount on all Jr. Civic workshops.
Admission into ACT ONE is by audition only! Young performers are required to sing 16 bars of a song (preferably a musical theatre piece) and will need to participate in a challenging movement audition.
Call 317-853-6317 for more information.
