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.
Our Fall 2018 production will be an exploration of narrative theater. We will take several short stories by Anton Chekhov script and perform them. The students will use their critical thinking skills to analyze the text and make appropriate choices about how it should be scripted.
We are calling our production Gettin' Cheeky with Chekhov.
Auditions: Monday, August 20, 2018 3:10 - 4:00 p.m. or Tuesday, August 21, 2018 3:10 - 4:00 p.m. in the Performing Arts room. Students only need come to one audition. Everyone who auditions will be cast in a story. Pick up will be on Belvedere Blvd. Let me know if your child needs to go to Aftercare.
Rehearsals begin this Saturday, August 25, 2018 from 9:00 a.m - 1:00 p.m.
Thurs., 9/27 Call @ 6:00 p.m. Perf. @ 7:30

Please review the FALL 2018 PLAY REHEARSAL & PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE very carefully. We are extremely limited on time. It will be imperative that everyone be at rehearsal. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Techies - We always need stagemanagers, stage crew, lightboard operators and sound operators for the show. Please check the schedule and let me know if you would like to participate as a techie.

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.
I will announce the available coaching dates shortly after the fall production.
