I am so excited that our Academy wide performance of “We the People…” a fun pageant about our wonderful country is on its way Friday, April 20, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.!
Students who auditioned for our spring show, “We the People…” have received their parts and monologues this week over e-mail. Rehearsal for those students is April 12 and 13 and 16-20, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m in the Odyssey Theatre.
All students in grades Pre K 3 – Fourth Grade will practice in school for the next few weeks after break and should report to their classrooms in costume at 6:15 p.m. on April 20th. If they are in band they should report to the Titus Room at 6:00 p.m. on April 20th. There will be no after school or evening rehearsals for grades Pre K3-Fourth Grade. All students will receive at least one speaking line or the class will sing a song. The Academy will provide props and scenery but all makeup and costumes are to be provided by the actors’ families. A guide is below; please ask your child for particulars after they return from break. Please do not spend too much money; costumes can always be made at home with small tweaks and a little creativity! If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Pre K 3 and Pre K 4 – Colonial style / Founding Fathers. Glasses or other small props is good too!
Kindergarten – Cowboys, Cowgirls, First People Natives, the Wild West, Western Explorers!
First Grade – Supreme Court Justices! Dressed in a shirt and tie or a collared shirt and ascot or fancy collar. We will provide the judge robes.
Second Grade – Students should dress like workers from the 30’s and 40’s. Cabbie caps, overalls, jeans, the ladies can dress like “Rosie Riveter” if they like. A little “dirt” and “grease” on the face is ok too.
Third Grade – Social action! Students should dress like hippies and counter culture heroes.
Fourth Grade – Girls and Boys should dress like solders from different time periods civil war, world war 2 or modern military heroes and heroines.
Costume examples are in the gallery below. Remember there is no need to purchase costumes, a little creativity can go a long way for a homemade costume if that is easier. Thanks and we’ll see you on April 20th!
