About Fifth Grade Drama
NOTE: Due to Covid, this PTA program has been suspended until further notice.
What is 5th Grade Drama?
Each year, Lincoln 5th graders team up with Bright Lights Theatre of Glen Ellyn to put on a fun and inclusive show.
Who can join?
No experience necessary and ALL 5th graders are welcome!
When does 5th Grade Drama meet?
Rehearsals will be Wednesdays between 4:30 and 8:30 p.m., usually September through January. Final performances are in late January or early February, location TBD.
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.
How do I join?
Register Online: link will be provided at the beginning of the year. 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.
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!
