To our Cappies Team!

Hello Everyone, 

I wanted to give a BIG SHOUT OUT and THANK YOU to our Cappies Team.  

They have been to countless of shows, travelled many miles, written and submitted critiques, and have represented our Theater Department in such a way, that they have made me and Ms. Laverty very proud.  

Bravo to you all!  

I am so honored to have you as my colleagues in the  theater world!

Dear Friends,

I am thrilled to announce our 2017 JHS Theater Arts Department Fall Musical, "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" with book by Jeffrey Lane, music and lyrics by David Yazbek.

It is a show filled with high energy, great dance numbers, and a storyline that is both exciting and intricate.  

If you haven't seen the film starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin, I urge you to do so. 

On Broadway, Norbert Leo Butz won a Tony for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical, and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actor in a Musical.  The show was nominated for 11 Tonys and 10 Drama Desk Awards.

Auditions will be held the last week of May and the first week of June.

Music for the auditions will be given out in the next few weeks, and we will have "vocal workshops" as we did last spring.

This is going to be a ton of fun!

Our new remind.com information is as follows:

Text the message @d8kb77 to the number 81010. If you’re having trouble with 81010, try texting @d8kb77 to (267) 800-2537.

Get your dancing shoes ready!

Take Care,
