theater week

Jan 22-26, 2018


Michele Mueller from Better Than Broadway Productions will be at Hillside School January 22 - 26, 2018 to work with up to 100 students in 2nd and 3rd grade, and prepare a full scale musical performance of The Pied Piper’s Wild West Show.

Please note that rehearsals are mandatory for the full cast, and participants must attend all of the rehearsals Monday, January 22nd, through Thursday, January 25th, from 3:15 - 5:30 pm in the Hillside School All Purpose Room. The performance will be the evening of Friday, January 26th, at Brookside Auditorium.

As in prior years, space is limited to a cast of 100 students. If interest exceeds spaces, students will be randomly selected through a lottery system. If there are any students not chosen via a lottery system, they will be placed on a waiting list.

To ensure the success of Theater Week, parent involvement is necessary. Volunteer opportunities include help with after school rehearsal(s), ticket and flower sales, help with the Friday afternoon or evening performance, taking photos of the performances, and/or supplying snacks for rehearsals and/or the cast party.

A Signup Genius link will be sent to all parents of students that will participate in Theater Week so that volunteer opportunities may be easily selected.
