Spoon Full of Sugar Lyrics

In every job that must be done
There is an element of fun
You find the fun and snap!
The job's a game

And every task you undertake
Becomes a piece of cake
A lark! A spree! It's very clear to see that

A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down-wown
The medicine go down
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way

 

Applications are available here.

Junior APA FAQ's

Who do I turn my application in to?

The front office of Dwyer or directly to Mrs. Chappell Brock at auditions.

 

Can I take Dance 1 without taking any other APA classes?

Yes. You will need to complete the APA application and have it approved by the Performing Arts Director and Dwyer Admin.

 

I am in the 6th grade and I've taken acting or done theatre in the past. Can I skip to Intermediate or Advanced Drama?

No. All sixth-graders must take at least 1 semester of Beginning Drama before they may be placed in an acting class of another level. (Most will take the full year course.)

 

I am in the 6th grade and I've taken a minimum of 3 hours of dance a week for over 2 years. Can I skip to Dance 2?

Yes. Please e-mail Mrs. Chappell Brock a ebrock@hbcsd.us to arrange for a mini-audition.

 

When do I do the actual physical auditions?

Choose one of the following dates to perform a song and dance from Disney’s “Spoon Full of Sugar.” (The choreography will be taught on the day of the audition.)

  • Thursday, May 10th from 1:30pm to 3:00pm
  • Friday, May 11th from 3:00pm to 4:30pm

What advice do you have for someone who knows they want to be a part of the Musical Theatre Department of APA at HBHS?

If you are planning on going to APA at HBHS and doing musical theatre there, we strongly suggest that you either take Mrs. Chappell Brock's dance class instead of PE at Dwyer, or that you enroll in either jazz, hip-hop or ballet after school. Also, we encourage you to take choir for at least a year or enroll in private vocal lessons after school.

 

Who Should I e-mail with questions about musical theatre, dance, drama or technical theatre?

E-mail Mrs. Chappell Brock at ebrock@hbcsd.us
