We are deeply grateful for the dedication and talents of all of our parent volunteers, many of whom no longer have children at
our school! We are particularly appreciative of the continuing efforts - over the past 12 years! - of Linda Stockman (our resident
Costume Designer & Wardrobe  Mistress) and Russell and Melissa Hobbs (resident Set Designers & Builders and responsible for
countless improvements to our auditorium facilities). The following individuals have been staples of our production team: Val Gilman (Publicity Coordinator); Carol Burnham (Choreographer); Hugo Burnham (Lighting/Sound Coordinator); Jason Grow (Cast/Crew Photography); and Martin DelVecchio (Videographer/Headshot Photography). New parent volunteers are always welcome!

NOTE: The essential understandings/questions and critical content/skills involved in the after school performing arts
clubs have a different focus from our Performing Arts classroom curriculum (see other pages on this web site for more
information). The goal of our extra-curricular program is to develop students' performance skills in acting, singing,
and dancing, as well as those skills that apply to technical theatre. Massachusetts Arts Curriculum Frameworks
Standards in Theatre, Music (singing), and Dance are covered extensively.
English Language Arts Common Core
Standards and 21st century skills are heavily exercised in these project-based performance activities.
