Ms. Reddick is grateful to be starting her 23nd year at GSL!  "It's been a privilege and a pleasure to encourage and equip young people to explore their creative side through the Performing Arts."  She looks forward to all the new opportunities this year holds for her students to excel.

Act well your part; there all the honor lies.   Alexander Pope

School Productions - Auditions, Rehearsal Schedules, Rehearsal Tracks, etc.

The GSL Middle School supports two theater productions each year, a fall play and a spring musical. 

Please visit this site often for news about upcoming shows. 

Audition Songs - Because there are no true solo songs within the show, you will need to listen to the songs and choose a character solo line that you would like to sing.  For instance, in Forever YoursTi Moune and Papa Ge have solo lines that they sing, but there are chorus parts throughout the song as well. You can choose which character lines you would like to sing.

Performance Lab

Performance Lab

Performance Lab is an afterschool course that allows students the opportunity to hone their performance skills without the pressure of a major production. We will not have a Performance Lab this year. However, I will be offering students an opportunity to receive coaching in preparation for the spring musical auditions. 

Performance Lab 2018 - 19  TECHNICAL THEATER

This year in PL we will focus on Lighting & Sound and Costumes. Students will learn how to develop a design concept and build their designs in the respective design areas. 

Please review the PL Schedule and e-mail  Ms. Reddick at lreddick [at] gslschool [dot] org if your child would like to participate in one or both of the technical theater labs.
