The Stories to Stage Program remains a tuition-free program due to the support of local business and family sponsors as well as funds raised through performance ticket sales. Parents are responsible for purchasing clothing (shirt, pants, socks, shoes) for their child. Additional costume pieces and accessories are provided by Green Bean and the help of volunteers.
TIME COMMITMENT: During the rehearsal period of January - March each STORY CAST will have a designated rehearsal day. Generally, students are cast in one story and should expect to rehearse one day a week. Attendance is mandatory for rehearsals unless discussed with Director ahead of time or due to illness. A cast rehearsal is similar to a team practice and we need everyone there to be successful. Students are expected to practice and memorize lines through the process. We encourage parents to communicate during the audition process any preferences they or their children have regarding time commitments or size of parts. We do take this into consideration when casting. The audition process is a wonderful time to communicate and ask any questions before casting and rehearsals have begun.
ART CONTEST: Ended October 9th
Students are asked to submit a piece of art of any kind or theme. Students place art into the
Green Bin in Mrs. Hehir's Art Room. Deadline is October 9, 2019. Winning artists become "Artists of Inspiration" for the Stories to Stage Program.
STORIES CONTEST: Ended
Students are asked to write a short story inspired by a Story Grouping of winning Art pieces. Students may also choose one of the "Wildcard" art pieces to insert into the story group or write about either of the Wildcards individually.
The winning stories from this contest will be transformed into scripts used during the performance phase of the program. Winning writers become "Writers of Inspiration" for the Stories to Stage Program. Our younger friends that may not be able to write yet are welcome to tell an adult their story and have their adult friend write it down.
Put stories into the Green Bin in Mrs. Hehir's Art Room by 11/13. Email us with questions!
Be Creative. Think Differently.
All 2019-20 program dates are tentative at this time.
