Ensemble (Ages 10-12)

The Ensemble

Ensemble students attend one-hour, age-specific classes, on Saturday mornings for 10 weeks OR 1 hr 15 minutes Tuesday nights for 8 weeks.  All Ensemble members in any Theatre Class are encouraged to audition for a role in that semester’s play, which is presented weeks after classes have concluded.

Registrations for Spring 2024 open Nov 2023!

The basketball team didn’t do anything wrong and STELLA (who is the WORST) just got the principal to suspend all after-school activities because they’re “a distraction.” What a “Karen!” She doesn’t even care about basketball!

The team is just about to get their games back when someone tried to murder Stella?! She’s awful, but not THAT awful! The principal has the school locked down except for classes until the case is resolved.

Guess the team is going to have to figure out who tried to murder the local Karen…and get her to change her mind about after-school activities…but also not get hurt themselves!

This is a wacky Scooby-Doo type of mystery, written by our Devising Class!
