Shrek is Coming
We have been waiting for years and finally it's here, this year's spring musical is the highly anticipated story of SHREK. Yeah!!! Shrek Jr. is a family-friendly comedy that follows the adventures of an ogre named Shrek who sets off on a quest to save a princess from a dragon; however, it turns out that in order to ultimately succeed, Shrek must battle different obstacles, including learning how to believe in himself.
Unlike previous years' plays, this one has lots of characters with speaking roles. Does your child like to perform? Sing, dance or act? Our school is known for its amazing plays. This is a great opportunity for your child to come out and have a fun theatre experience. Auditions are coming at the end of October and the full rehearsal schedule begins after the winter break. Registration is now open. You can find all parent information, registration materials, audition information etc. on our play website: https://shrektopangaelementary.shutterfly.com
If you have any trouble with the website please contact Debra Shier Grether firstname.lastname@example.org or Lisa Ward email@example.com.
