From Mr. Bergman:
Hi everyone –
I’m writing to share with you the information on the drama productions for this year!
The 2016 fall play will be “Midsummer / Jersey.” A comedic mashup of Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” and the reality show, “Jersey Shore,” this play will give the students a fun chance to work on their Shakespeare, while poking fun at the world of reality television. JulieAnn Govang will produce / direct.
– Tryouts will be the week of September 20th.
– The show dates will be November 18 @ 7:30, November 19 @ 7:30, and November 20 @ 3pm, at the middle school.
– The show is open to all students in grades 9-12.
– Rehearsals will be Tuesday and Thursday evenings. A more complete rehearsal schedule will be online after the beginning of school.
The 2017 spring musical will be… “Bye Bye Birdie!”
LHS Drama will present the classic musical, “Bye Bye Birdie!” in the Littleton Performing Arts Center. JulieAnn Govang, director for LHS’ production of “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” in 2015, will direct, and Mr. Bergman will music direct this super-fun show which features the songs, “Kids,” “Got a Lotta Livin’,” “The Telephone Hour,” “Put On a Happy Face,” and “Hymn for a Sunday Evening (Ed Sullivan).”
