Drama Club is back!! The Drama Club is pleased to announce that they are planning on putting on another exciting production at the beginning of April. Before the times of Covid, the club had the fun challenge of producing an entertaining show for both the students who participated and the audiences.


This year, Mrs. Killeen is teaming up with Mr. Rizzuto and Mr. Sabourin 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 11th year. Mr. Rizzuto teaches 4th grade and acted/directed productions in high school. Our music teacher, Mr. Sabourin, participated in theater in high school and is excited to bring the program back to PCS.


Since this program is not funded by the district, there is a participation fee of $75.00 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 permission slip. Please attach a check for the amount of $75.00, 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 and we will discuss possible options.


We will meet on Tuesday afternoons (and one tech week in April) from 3:00-4:00 in the Cafeteria. We would like to stress that if your child 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

Bobby Rizzuto
