    Dear Parents,


    We are very excited to have such a talented group of students come together to bring to life our school’s production of Shrek! With the momentum and success from last year’s show “Beauty and the Beast” there is a lot of energy and excitement to start work on this year’s show.


    This year our rehearsals will be set up differently than last year. The rehearsals will be split, on Wednesdays students will be working on character development, their lines and blocking on stage, Thursdays will be used for learning their music. With this new approach it means not all students will be needed both days every week, and during rehearsals there will be less down time while waiting to go on.


    A schedule will be made for a month in advance of who will be needed and on which days they are needed; this is to make scheduling easier for students and parents.


    The following is a list of the important dates for the year:

    Parent Meeting – Monday, September 28th at 6:30 in the Library
