If you want to be a part of the crew for The Wizard of Oz, please complete this paperwork. That’s all that you need to do! And we need lots of help – if you are willing to learn and work hard – you’re in!
If you were part of the crew for the fall play, you only need to submit the calendar/parent pages – we have the first 2 pages already on file. (So if you print, only print pages 3-4.) If you are new to the theatre program – welcome! – please print all of the pages. We’ll also need a code of conduct, and a drug screening form (if you’re not already on the school list).
Completed paperwork should be returned to Mrs. Mintzer (rm 508) – or to the main office, who will put it in her mailbox.
Crew work will begin on Monday, January 6th. Details to follow.
Thank you to everyone who auditioned for the show.
Unfortunately we were not able to double cast this show as we had hoped.
Please look over the rehearsal schedule prior to accepting your part.
While it may look like you’re being called to rehearsal six days a week, that is not the case.
You will only be called for specific rehearsals based on which scenes you are in.
We hope to have a more specific rehearsal schedule to you by next week.
Information for working on a crew will be available next week.

Please disregard the ensemble scene breakdown sheet that was previously pushed out. In our haste to get it out we had several omissions. Our intent on sharing this document was to show the ensemble that you are in several scenes throughout the production and a very important part of this show. Our mistake caused some to think the opposite and for that we are truly sorry. We will clear this up – please accept our apologies.
Here are the titles and sections of which songs should be prepared for Tuesday’s callback session. More info will be uploaded to Moodle/Google classroom on Sunday. This info will have to hold you over until then – please be patient!

It is important that you SIGN IN each time you attend a crew session – for attendance (safety reasons) as well as to keep track of everyone’s hours. The more hours you put in, the more recognition you could receive. Remember that Thespian induction and honors are based on total hours worked. And, we want everyone to be well-rounded – so please come to multiple sessions as your schedule allows!
Additional crew schedules will be available soon…. we will also look for help with costumes, make up, and marketing/ushers. Mrs. Shellenberger and Mrs. Mintzer will oversee much of that work – so it will likely take place during our rehearsal sessions. More info to follow.
If you did not complete the google form during homeroom last week – or simply would like to join our Thespians club, it is not too late!
Send an email (or stop by room 508) to Mrs. Mintzer to request that your name be added to our roster. Only students who are on our roster will be permitted to attend our first meeting this Wednesday, Sept 11th in the auditorium.
Mrs. Mintzer must have your name, grade, and student ID number to add your name to our club roster. Our club is open to anyone with an interest in theatre. Club time is separate from our after-school rehearsals and work sessions. You do not have to be a part of the fall play cast/crew to join our club.
