About the show 
This magical story by Beat by Beat Press explores the world of Giants who live above the clouds and follows a group of adventurous giants who want to know more of the Earth below. While on Earth, they come across all kinds of new characters and together they learn about friendship, honesty, and what it takes to be a community. With a spectrum of fun broadway-styled songs, a rap battle or two, and some zany characters--this will be an experience your kids won't want to miss out on.

General Information

  • Due to facility and personnel constraints we are only able to take 100 kids for cast: 10 first graders, 15 second graders, 20 third graders, 25 fourth graders, and 30 fifth graders. 1st-3rd graders are ensemble roles that sing in big groups but have no solo parts. 4th and 5th graders can choose to be ensemble, or can audition for solo speaking or singing lines.
  • Mitch Zimberg and Kristen Bero will be returning to lead the Stage Crew Program this year! Stage crew consists of 12 fourth & fifth graders. Stage crew members will apply for backstage and tech-related assignments to fulfill during the last two weeks of rehearsals and the performances. Click here for more stage crew details.
  • Practices are at East Ridge in the gym and start in January right after winter break ends for fourth and fifth graders. 1-3 graders start later on, usually at the beginning of February. A detailed calendar will be available after the registration process is complete.
  • Cast members practice one day a week. Which day a child has practice is determined by the role in which they are cast. Practice days will be Tuesday 3:50-5:30, Wednesday 2:20-4:30, and Thursday 3:50-5:30. After online registration is complete, you will be able to fill out a scheduling conflict form and we will do our utmost take your input into consideration as we cast the musical.
