Pippin! The JHS Theater Arts Fall Musical

Dear Friends,

The JHS Theater Arts department is pleased to announce this season's fall musical Pippin!!  This 2013 Tony Award Winning musical will be presented November 14, 15, 16 at 7:30 p.m.  All middle school and high school students are encouraged to participate in this exciting production.

As is our tradition in the JHS Theater Arts Department, the fall musical "Boot Camp" will begin August 13.  

We will rehearse: 
August 13-15, 20-22 and 27-29 from 7:15-9:30 p.m. We will begin in the high school choral room (alternating between that space and the auditorium).  During our "boot camp" much of the music will be learned for the production.  This extra time gives us a head start on the upcoming months...and eases us into the world of Pippin!  

There are no audition requirements for those students interested in being in the chorus or featured as dancer.  Students who would like to audition for a principal part in this production may do so on September 8th from 12:30-3:00 p.m.

All information for the fall musical can be found on our blog.

All cast members are required to attend all scheduled rehearsals as well as help break down the set at the end of the production.  There is a parent meeting September 18th at 8:30 p.m. in the high school choral room.  On November 10th at 5:00 p.m.we will have our fourth annual "cast pot-luck" dinner to celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of the cast and crew.  Parent volunteers will be needed for this event.  All family members are invited to attend.

As in years past, there will be an extensive Ad Drive for this season's musical.  All cast members will be required to raise $75.  The proceeds from the Ad Drive pay for all of our cast member's costumes.  The Ad Drive is crucial to our success as an educational as well as a performing arts program.

Please remember to become a "follower" to the blog and check at least twice a week for updated information on rehearsals and other materials relating to the production of Pippin!

Thank you for your support. It is always appreciated.

Here we go again!
