School Musical The Jungle Book June 6, 7, 8

Our School play this year is brought to us by our teachers Ms. Duke, Mr. Payne & Ms. Bajaj and our PTA Vice President Jenny King! They will rehearse during STEAM hour for the next two trimesters.  Mr. Payne and Ms. Duke are team teaching. Mr. Payne is teaching music and Ms. Duke will be staging each scene. Ms. Bajaj is leading STEAM classes in set design to create scenery for our stage.

The shows will be June 6, 7, and 8 at 6:30pm and one matinee show at Noon on Saturday the 8th at the West Seattle High School theater.  We’ll have dress rehearsals at the theater after school on June 4 and 5. 

A school play with a large cast is a huge undertaking!  We can use many parent volunteers to make the show a success. 

Volunteer Needs:

  1. Costume coordinator:  We have many costumes stored in the movement room.  Our coordinator would need to take stock of what we already have and find others to help find or make costumes we still need.  During dress rehearsals and shows, the coordinator will need to find a volunteer team to help kids with getting dressed, costume changes, and keeping track of costume pieces.
  2. Program/Poster designer:  We need someone with design skills to create a program for performances and posters to advertise the show!
  3. Backstage Supervision: During dress rehearsals and shows we’ll need several adult volunteers to help supervise kids who are not onstage.  

Thanks for your support!  This should be a fun learning experience for our kids.  – Lisa Duke
