Theater Enrichment

(through Not Just Dance)


Registration is closed.




The Spring 2019 theater production will be Jungle Book!  In this theater enrichment activity open to 5th and 6th grade students, participants will learn about the theater craft and gain skills in acting, singing, dancing, and technical production under the direction of instructors from Not Just Dance. Students will gain confidence in themselves and in their ability to speak/perform in public, and they will learn how to work as part of a team. This enrichment activity culminates in live performances of the play, two during the school day for fellow students and two at night for families.


During the first week of the activity, students will learn about and express interest in the opportunities for lead acting roles, ensemble and chorus roles, and tech crew positions. Instructions and materials to prepare for auditions for on-stage roles will be provided. Auditions will then be held during the second week of activity sessions (week of January 28). All registered students in this activity will be assigned by the directors to some position(s) within the final production.
