Fall 2022 Early Stages Performance

The 5-6 year old Early Stages performers will rehearse 10-15 minute plays, which will both encourage reading and accommodate for students who are very early in their reading skills. These plays will be selected once the class roster is set, to better ensure the students are set up to succeed. Each child will do an audition in their class, and the teacher will assign roles to each child.

Rehearsals will begin in late September, and will meet once or twice a week in the early evening. The actual calendar will depend on the students’ availability.

The Early Stages students will perform their 10-15 minute plays on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at 6:00 pm, at the Ohio Theatre. This will be a free and public performance, with costumes and sets.
