Theatre Arts

The Odyssey Theatre at OLMC is a fully functional and operational theatre run by students. Every season the theatre hosts several speaking events as well as a full theater season including a talent show, a fall drama, a winter comedy and a spring play.

Dear Parents of the Cast and Crew of Life Afterlife,

Huzzah!

This year’s Winter Comedy, Life Afterlife is the largest production ever to hit our main stage show season! Over 70 students are involved in our production, to put that in context there are roughly 90 students in the entire middle school, so this show is going to be big. I’m so excited to have so many students involved, a bigger show means more student opportunities to express themselves on stage and work with top-level equipment backstage. A bigger production also means bigger laughs on stage, but a larger production also brings its challenges.

Due to the large numbers of actors we are moving to a tiered rehearsal schedule (the same our students will encounter in most High Schools). That means only those actors and crew members that we are working with on that particular day should attend. A schedule is attached below. I understand that a simple schedule when all actors attend every rehearsal is easier to schedule for parents, but do to the sheer number of students– for their safety and to get the most out of rehearsal time– please only arrive on the days that your child is due to work. Backstage crew will begin attending rehearsals in February, so stay tuned!

Should your child attend when they are not supposed to they will be dismissed to AfterCare and charged accordingly. I understand this can be confusing so please check back often, our Theatre Arts webpage located at the bottom of our homepage will always have the most updated information.

During tech week, the final rehearsals when all actors and crew are present, I’ll be enlisting the help of colleagues, outside theater professionals and parents to help. I understand there may be special circumstances, questions and more, please contact me with any thoughts or concerns at eguerra@nullacademyolmc.org and we’ll see you at the Odyssey Theatre!

I’ll be seeing you,

Elliot Guerra

writer/director, Life Afterlife

Rehearsal Schedule for January 24-25, 2019

Students will be given a script at no cost when arriving at their first rehearsal, though only one. Should they lose it they are responsible to print their own. Due to the nature of physical action in this production, students should bring a change of clothes (think gym wear) if not in their gym uniform already. Students should bring a snack to each rehearsal.
