Drama Club with Ms. Philipak

Theatre Masks.png

This is the thirteen year of Drama Club here at Twin Chimneys. Because this club has
grown so much and because so many students want to be in the club – I’m have changed my sign-up process a little. I have attached a questionnaire that you need to fill out completely and return to Mrs. Philipak ASAP. The questions on the form will help me to determine who the most responsible students will be for drama club.  

Please turn your form in NO LATER THAN Wednesday, September 6th.

Fifth graders who were in drama last year will be given a high preference to get in drama again this year – BUT YOU HAVE TO STILL TURN THE FORM IN!
Once I have received all the questionnaires, I will pick 30-35 students to be in this exciting club!

Drama rehearsals are on Tuesday mornings -8:00 a.m., some Tuesdays after school – 3:50-
4:45 p.m., and Thursdays after school – 3:50 – 4:45 p.m. On weeks of Early Release Days,
we will have rehearsals on Wednesdays after school instead of Thursdays. Schedules of
exact rehearsal dates is on this website.

Drama Club will perform a fractured fairy tale this year. Scripts will be handed out in September and we will be discussing the play and HOW TO AUDITION. Auditions will be held the week of September 25th!! Our performance date is March 27th . We will be learning our lines and all parts during Drama Club. There will be characters that have many lines and some that have just a few lines. There will also be parts for stage crew, make-up artists, costumes, set design, and sound crew. In Drama Club, we will also be doing many other fun activities including: learning about drama/acting in general, having a stage make-up day, acting games, set, scenery and prop building, learning about sound and lights – and many other FUN activities!!

There will be $5 in dues to join this club. This money will all be used to pay the royalties on the play that we will perform. Do not send the money at this time. Please wait until you are notified that your child was one of those that are selected!

So, if you are interested in being a part of the TWIN CHIMNEYS DRAMA CLUB – please fill
out the form and RETURN it to Mrs. Philipak as soon as possible and NO LATER than
Wednesday, September 6th!!

You will get a letter with our schedule that confirms that you are in Drama Club!!! Once you receive this letter, you need to come to our first meeting. All members of this Club need to bring a 1” 3-ring binder with them to all rehearsals. Binders should have a pencil and a highlighter in them. (Colors of the binders do not matter.) Please have your name written on the SPINE of the binder!!

When we get closer to our performance date in March, our rehearsals will move to ALL
AFTERNOONS. The final two weeks before the performance, our rehearsals will be from
3:45 – 6:15 on selected dates. We WILL be performing at West High school on Wednesday, March 27th.

 We will have dress rehearsals there on Mon, March 19th, Tues, March 20th, and Mon, March 26th right after school from 4–7:00 p.m.. Parents MUST drive students to West High and students MUST be picked up on time. Also, on our performance day on March 27th we will be going straight over to the high school after school (parents will need to drive their students) and will stay straight through to the performance - we will have dinner at the high school!
Finally, sometimes dates do change due to various meetings that come up here at school or if we need extra rehearsals near the end. I will update you with any changes as soon as I know them.

Thanks so much for your support of the music/drama program.
