This year’s musical, Westward Whoa!, is sure to be a smash! Once again, Lincoln is teaming up with Bright Lights Theatre of Glen Ellyn for a fun and inclusive show.
No experience necessary and ALL 5th graders are welcome!
Rehearsals will be Wednesdays between 4:30 and 8:30 p.m., September 25 through January (515 Crescent, Glen Ellyn). Final performances are Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26 at Hadley Junior High.
We understand that our fifth graders and their families are busy. Each student’s family will have the opportunity to list conflicts so that the rehearsal schedule can work for all involved. Once roles are assigned, specific schedules will be distributed, as not everyone will be called for the entire rehearsal each week. Students looking for a smaller commitment will also have the opportunity to opt for an “ensemble only” role. Once conflicts are worked out, and the schedule is set, kids are discouraged from missing more than two rehearsals.
Signups will be distributed via backpack mail in the coming week and must be returned to the school office by Friday, September 13. If your child is participating, you are needed in a volunteer role; please think about how you would like to participate. Parent chaperones are needed at rehearsals as well (like cast members, chaperones will be required to attend only one “shift” of rehearsal). Volunteer and chaperone signup will be done at our Parent Meeting at the end of our first rehearsal on September 25, at 7:30.
Being on stage and part of an ensemble performance is a unique and perhaps once-in-a-lifetime experience. We have great parts for boys and girls – plan on joining the fun!
Parents, if you have any questions, please let us know!
