Students: Are you hoping to do some extra performing this year? Then our after school drama program could be for you! We run two different shows through our school year. Here is the information for our first show.
FALL MUSICAL: A Ghost Tale for Mr. Dickens Jr.
(A Magic Tree House retelling of the Christmas Carol)
Magic Tree House: A Ghost Tale for Mr. Dickens JR. is an adaptation of book #44 of Mary Pope Osborne's award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series, which has sold more than 100 million copies and is available in more than 100 countries around the world. Jack and Annie’s tree house takes them to Victorian London in this holiday-themed story, where they learn the importance of charity and kindness through their friendship with legendary author, Charles Dickens.

GRADES: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades are eligible to register for our after school show.
REHEARSALS: Rehearsals will take place for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students most Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30-5:00 pm. If a student has an extended scene, he/she will need to occasionally stay until 5:30 pm. After casting the show, we will let you know the exact schedule. 1st and 2nd grade students will rehearse every Tuesday from 3:30-4:45 pm. In November, 1st and 2nd grade students will move to the Monday/Wednesday schedule with the older students.
DRESS REHEARSALS: All cast members will be required to attend TWO DRESS REHEARSALS on November 26-28 from 3:30-6:00 pm. (We will announce which rehearsal dates students will be required to attend when we receive our Festival of Trees schedule for our First Grade students.)
SHOW DATES: November 29-30 and December 1, 2018.
STUDENT CAP: 50 students are able to participate in this show on a first come-first-served basis.
AUDITIONS: Auditions are not required, but 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students wishing to be considered for a lead role will need to audition. To prepare for auditions, we are having audition practice (August 27th and 29th from 3:30-4:30 pm). Audition practice is not required but is highly recommended. Auditions for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will take place August 30th and September 3rd in time slots. A sign up for auditions will be sent via email to students who have registered. The cast list will be posted on September 4th, and our first rehearsal will be September 5th! 1st and 2nd grade students will have their first rehearsal on September 4th.
ATTENDANCE: We want your student to shine on stage! In order to know where to move and be ready for the show...students must be at rehearsals. Attendance for each rehearsal is mandatory. Students missing more than 3 rehearsals may have lines or roles given to other students. Additionally, students must be able to attend all shows and dress rehearsals. Please have your calendar ready when you register so all dates your student will miss will be logged before we create our big rehearsal schedule.
REGISTRATION: Registration will open for 1st-4th grade students on August 22 at 8 pm. Registration for 5th grade students will open on August 22 at 7 pm. We will also keep a waiting list when registration reaches its maximum.
