June 9-10 Performances
Students Entering Grades 5-9
The WLA Theatre program is going to try something a little different this year. We’re offering a play for our Lutheran Elementary students to participate in – We Are Monsters! This will entail placing students interested in participating in roles through an audition, as well as practice from May 15 – June 8 about three times per week. Public performances will take place June 9-10 at 7 PM in the WLA auditorium. Our WLA drama students and alumni will be working alongside the students to take them through the production of a show. (There’s even opportunities for those who might be interested in working backstage as well if that is your preference.) Alumni Cassidy Schrieber and WLA Director Mr. Mildebrandt will be leading this learning endeavor. Come join us for a fun few weeks and we’ll put on a fantastic show at the end! Sign up for interest will occur mid-April to plan for May auditions. Contact Mr. Mildebrandt at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or for more information.
