This production is designed to give opportunities to students in grades 7-12 who want to experience something new in theatre! It is a great chance for grades 7-12 to collaborate, grow, and have a blast doing it! The One Act is a “theatrical concert” and features a variety of scenes and songs from various sources.
Grades 7-9 have the opportunity to perform material that will prepare them for the challenges of the US main stage productions.
Grades 10-12 expand their skill set in areas such as lighting, designing, stage management and other technical areas.
Grades 11-12 will take on a director role, learning how to run rehearsals, block scenes, and direct actors.

Rehearsal schedule varies around conflicts. Most will be after school. Cast and Student Production Team (SPT) members are expected to attend all required rehearsals.
Rehearsals will be scheduled by individual directors who will communicate these with cast and parents.
If you MUST miss a rehearsal (other than dates specified during your registration), you MUST notify your student director BEFORE the fact. Do not send messages with other cast members and/or friends as that method is unreliable. Multiple absences may jeopardize your role even if they are prearranged and excused.
