10/7-10/12 TheatreCHS Newsletter

Update Update Update!!! Hope everyone has enjoyed the weekend.

               TheatreCHS has a lot going on, but I will try to be brief— YEAH RIGHT, no.. really.

  • WE HAD A VERY SUCCESSFUL COSTUMING RUMMAGE AT UVA THIS PAST WEEKEND!  Students Laura Holt and Claire LeBlond brought back to CHS 3 racks full of donations to the Department. This is really HUGE news! I can’t wait for everyone to see what they found– but to make a long story short, we can start planning the next 5 years of shows!  
  • Danny Wagner was celebrated at the PCA Rising Star Event this past Friday! Congratulations, Danny!
  • Rehearsals for Women and War go into “tech” starting 10/10 (Thursday) of this week. For this week, there will be NO late night rehearsals however EVERYONE on crew and cast MUST be there for rehearsals.  PLEASE remember that Hotel Reservations would also require your remaining payment if you only submitted the 60 dollar registration fee.
  • Parent Booster Meeting 10/10/2013  (6:00 PM)
Let me know! We could still use a few more!
the VTA/VHSL One-Act festival season has become very popular amongst the students.
This year over 40 students will be participating!
Intro to Drama students will be producing a school-wide haunted ghost story house on Wednesday, October 30th. The idea is that proceeds from this event can also serve to fund future trips for students. PARENTS OF INTRO TO DRAMA STUDENTS,  WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN ASSISTING WITH THIS? IT WOULD BE A GREAT WAY TO GET INVOLVED AND ALSO GET TO KNOW ME BETTER. 
As a new incentive for performance diversity and self expression, I am developing with our new librarian Kelly Kroese, a slam night also known as “NO SHAME” which I would like to have on a monthly basis occurring in the black box theater. Of course, there are ground rules, but I feel like this would be a terrific way for students to create, sing, act, dance, paint, show their film projects, etc. My advanced acting class is going to be spearheading this endeavor, but again, if you are interested in assisting with this, please let me know!
