~Practice improvising and play some improv games

~Work as a team

~Aim to put on a production

Dear Parents,

The Drama Club is pleased to announce that they are planning on putting on another exciting production at the beginning of April. Last school year’s production of “Bedtime Stories” was a hit with both the students who participated and those who came to see the performance.

This year, Mrs. Killeen, Mr. Verrill and Mr. Weber are teaming up to have Drama Club again. Mrs. Killeen, a fifth grade teacher at PCS, has been doing local theater for many years and is co-running the Drama Club for her 9th year. Mr. Verrill teaches Social Studies and has been involved with theater and improv for over 20 years and is excited to be co-running the Drama Club at PCS for his third year. Our music teacher, Mr. Weber, has agreed to come back after the successful first year.

Since this program is not funded by the district, there is a participation fee of $30.00 for anyone that wants to participate in Drama Club. The fee helps to cover the costs of scripts, costumes, sets and any other materials needed for production.

If you would like your child to participate, please fill out both sides of the following permission slip. Please attach a check for the amount of $30.00, made payable to WRSD. If you are unable to afford this fee, but would still like your child to participate in the production, please contact Mrs. Killeen or Mr. Verrill and we will discuss possible options.

We will meet on Thursday afternoons (One Tuesday and Wednesday) from 3:00-4:00 in the Cafeteria. We would like to stress that if your daughter or son decides to participate in the production, they are expected to memorize their lines, attend ALL rehearsals, and attend both productions.

We are very eager to get started and are looking forward to this year’s production.

Sincerely,

Bethany Killeen

Heath Verrill

Michael Weber
