New: Parent Volunteer Requirements
MUST READ BEFORE REGISTERING:
Click here to read the Storybook Theatre policy for parent volunteer requirements. Some of these policies will be evolving as we determine what is needed moving forward, but in order to maintain and continue to improve the quality of our productions and our program, we have identified some volunteer needs.
Note: this is the only regular summer production for 2018. Please visit the Summer Camp page to learn more about class options for ages 7 and up.

A couple of answers to some frequently asked questions:
Can I sign up for this even if I'm doing the current high school production? Yes. The schedules overlap a little so you will have rehearsal for both plays for a couple of weeks, but that's okay.
Can I sign up for this AND a week long summer camp? Absolutely, please do!
High School Class - Little Women
Girls ages 15+
Girls ages 15+
Please don't sign up for this class if your student will not be 15 or older during this semester. Occasionally exceptions are made for younger siblings who are near the appropriate age. This is on a case-by-case basis; please contact Julie to discuss.
Classes begin: April 3
Performance: July 6-7, 2018
This version of Little Women features only female characters and covers about half of the typical story of the four March sisters (it ends when Father returns home from the Civil War; after Beth has been ill, but prior to her death; when Meg has just become engaged and Amy is told she may go to Europe with Aunt March).

Yes - this is an extensive rehearsal schedule. This play is very challenging! Any students age 15+ are welcome to sign up - however, we will likely perform this play again within the next two years. You are much more likely to be cast in one of the very large roles (Meg/Jo) when you are in upper high school, simply due to age/experience. Those who are 16-18 may not have another chance to participate in this play, depending upon when they graduate.
Please include all potential conflicts with registration. This production is on a much shorter timeline than usual. We really need everyone at every rehearsal if at all possible to make up for the shorter number of weeks.
Ticket Information for Spring 2018
Each student receives 2 free tickets for parents/guardians to attend the show, pending parent volunteer task completion.
