It’s a Big Hit for Drama Club’s Performance of “Giants in the Sky”!

Our 4th-8th grade Drama Club put on an excellent, energetic and entertaining musical rendition of “Giants in the Sky”this weekend!

The play featured giants who lived, well, in the sky. Some of the giants wanted to visit the humans on the ground of Earth…so they took a little adventure. They learned some lessons and needed some guidance from their teachers (called “elders” in the musical), and the head “elder” even learned a lesson as well. It was a cute and fun musical filled with entertaining songs and dances that some of our students choreographed. The actors and actresses did a marvelous job. 

We are proud of you, Drama Club students! A big thank you to the Drama Club directors – Music teacher Mrs. Bell and middle school Spanish teacher Senora McDonald.

“The Grunch” – Drama Club Produces Amazing Musical

The Drama Club produced an amazing musical – “The Grunch” – a spin-off of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”.

In “The Grunch”, a girl gets involved with the production of a students’ play with the purpose of attempting to ruin the play and make the actors and actresses look bad to highly-acclaimed reviewers. Throughout her involvement in the musical, the character realizes that she actually does enjoy being involved.

Fourth through eighth grade students who are in Drama Club have been practicing for the play and performed it for families and friends recently. The actors and actresses were enthusiastic, and the play was exciting to watch. It was full of comedic lines – some of which were personalized to Tucson – entertaining songs, and a great lesson was learned at the end of the play. Our students did a wonderful job singing the beautiful songs and were great performers.

Middle school Spanish teacher Senora McDonald and Elementary Music teacher Mrs. Bell directed the play. They said the tech and backstage crew did a lot of the work!

Way to go, students!

Drama Club Dress Rehearsal

The Drama Club has been very busy lately – rehearsing for the school play, My Son Pinnochio Jr.

Directors Lindsay McDonald (also our middle school Spanish teacher) and Ariella Bell (one of our music teachers) have been working hard with our after-school drama club. The students in the club have put great effort into getting into character and working together to get ready for the play.

Here are some pictures from the dress rehearsal for the play.
