Please make sure to read ALL the information below - several things have changed.
AGDT Teen Classes are for girls ages 13 and older. Age 12 is okay if
they have previously participated in at least two past AGDT Classes.
2 "Younger Student" Roles Remaining; Class is Otherwise Full.
Tuesdays (5:00-7:00 PM) – Ms. Scrooge. AGDT
last performed this play in Fall 2008. Ms. Scrooge is a modern twist (with an all-female cast) on the classic story A Christmas Carol. Here’s the description from the
Dramatic Publishing website –
Why shouldn't an actress get a chance to portray one of the meanest
roles ever created (such as Scrooge) or one of the more poignant (such
as Scrooge's employee, here renamed Bobbie Cratchit)? There's also
Bobbie Cratchit's heartbreakingly appealing child, Little Lisa (Tiny
Tim). The script retains the original point, but it's with an entirely
new twist that adds something unexpected to your theatrical Christmas
festivities. Edna Scrooge has sacrificed human feelings of love and
friendship to be a success. To her, Bobbie is just an impersonal office
machine. Alone on Christmas Eve, the overworked Edna hallucinates—with
the help of ghosts—about her grim past and even colder future. We
already know what we're getting with old Ebenezer—but Ms. Scrooge is a
whole new Christmas experience.
The classes will begin on September 3 (I know, very soon) and run weekly through November 5. There are 10 spaces in this class, with an additional 4 spaces for younger kids*. The final Tuesday rehearsal on November 5 will be from 5-8pm. There will be an additional dress rehearsal from 6:30-8:30pm on Thursday,
*The additional spaces for kids are intended for ages 7-11. They are very small parts. Each part has two characters, but not a lot of lines. Tuition for these students is at 50% the normal rate, due to the small nature of the parts.
I would prefer for any student to only miss a maximum of 2 practices.
While it’s not a requirement, it would be best for everyone involved if
the full class can attend the first practice on September 3. This will
be the day parts are chosen for the play.
plays will be performed at Faith Baptist Church, and the final
rehearsal (November 7) will be at the church as well. The performance
will be on Friday, November 8 at 7:00pm.
girls will need to arrive at the church at 2:00 pm for a final dress
rehearsal on the day of their play. We will have dinner and have time
to do everyone's hair and makeup before it's showtime!
COSTUME DAY will be on Saturday, October 12 from 11:00am-2:00pm. Each
student will need to have a quick costume appointment during this
timeframe. This meeting will be at another location in Lees Summit (my
parent's house), where my costume collection is housed. Attendance at Costume Day is mandatory unless arrangements are made at registration.
will be held at my house in Lees Summit. I will send directions to
the enrolled students' families before the classes begin.
