I agree with you on that, Newsies isn't the BEST movie out there

LOL. I think Moulin Rouge could be really cool, but I have to agree with your directors on the Disney thing..... (and Newsies. i'm the only person in the world that does not like that movie)

Ms. Halloway has a thing for unknown musicals, and that's where Bugsy Malone and Working came from. I've always wanted to do either Moulin Rouge or Lion King but Ms. Luher said MR was to "Inappropriate" (Hi, we did Sweet Charity two years ago), and she will NEVER do something that has been done by Disney, which is a fact that we all hate. Personally, I'd kill to do Newsies, Lion King, Nightmare Before Christmas, or Pocahontas, but that's never going to happen.

I love those two women. I always get excited when I see them walking around competitions. I'm a dork, I know.

See and all of those are more entertaining shows than "Working"... no offense to this year's group- you perform your show very well. I really would like to see a cool show from them. One that pushes the boundaries a bit and excites us with it's music.

To be fair, Sauk never used to do the whole "non-group dancing" thing until 2002 when they did Ragtime. Prior to that show they did really group dance heavy shows like Hair, West Side Story, Big River, Jesus Christ Superstar, Grease, Godspell, Sweet Charity, and Joseph just to name a few. As someone already mentioned, story comes first at Sauk. If it doesn't make sense within the context of the musical for all of the characters to be dancing together then they don't. While this doesn't always make for the most high octane show...it is true to the musical.

Believe it or not in the 80's Sauk did traditional shows, no musicals. It wasn't until the early 90's that they started doing musicals with A Chorus Line.

Thanks for pointing that out.
We were just talking about that in Exec practice on Monday. We brought a woman in to bring us all together again (there was mounting showhchoir drama and tension in our group), and she was in the very first "A Chorus Line" show. It was ammusing to listen to her talk about that and share stories and the things she remembered.

no there really wasn't a lot of dancing. the girls all danced in the slow ballad song, but it was really slow dancing. this is not just last year, this happens EVERY year. i really wish Sauk Prairie would take this constructive observant critique to heart instead of just brushing it aside. i love that sauk is different, but it is possible to be different and more accessible to judges AND the audience. i don't mean to be mean- i tell people all the time that i could see myself teaching at a program like Sauk. i just think that with a few tweaks to the show design and choreography Sauk could be THE powerhouse program because they are different- which again is a GOOD thing. Too many choirs nowadays look all the same.


Sorry, I just realized how pissy my previous reply sounded. Didn't mean to come off as pissy or a snobby b**** or anything.
Saying that that happens every year though isn't true. I'll remind you of our Sweet Charity, Pippin, Seussical, and Big River shows. those had A LOT of dancing the entire time. We don't brush those critizisms aside, our directors are just EXTREMELY opinionated. And putting more of an emphasis on vocals and acting allows us to let in more people who maybe can't phisically dance a 20min show. But it's really all up to Mr. Terrian. and I still disagree about not having much dancing. Traffic Jam, Cleaning Woman, Brother Trucker, and Something to point to has people dancing almost the entire time, as apposed to some other groups that spend half their show's in downtempos and costume changes (no disrespect to those groups of course, I really enjoy a lot of them).

I also agree though, because changing the judging panel can really change the whole competition.



yah but then again, the judge(s) that are added to finals don't have the be the one that changes the results. a judge that scored in day round could be the one with completely different results from the rest of the judges.

i guess that is why each competition does it differently. if everyone had the same scoresheet and the same rules it just wouldnt be as exciting... then each choir would know EXACTLY what they needed to do in order to score the most points and show choir just wouldn't be as much fun.

And you'd be wrong.

Same judges and scoresheets for prelims and finals. Damon had groups competing and Shawn Porter left after the Solo Competition Finals. I wish more competitions would do it that way!



Gotcha. I guess I saw Shawn Porter back there when they introduced the judges and then never looked back after the solo competition was finished.

I agree, because one judge could really mess up results. But I have always found it wonderful that Damon does not judge when he has a group competing, and he is an awesome critique judge.

Sauk's show this year was such a disappointment for me. They are usually my favorite show to watch, but I guess i'm just prejudice towards traditional show choir. But the show was just toooo boring for me, vocals were strong like always, but nothing else did it for me. It was a biggggg disappointment.

Oh, and the choreagrapher for Reedsburg is Kari Goodman.
