Supply List By Grade Level
After-school Theater Program Changes
PCK’s after-school theatre program has become a very popular program in grades 3-8 for many years. However, we have noted a system-wide academic strain for our 3rd grade participants. Therefore, we’d like to announce the following changes and upcoming opportunities for grades 4-8.
The fall production of Elf the Musical will be for participants in grades 4 and 5. While the spring Production of Disney’s Newsies will be for grades 5-8. For the 2018-2019 school year only, students in 5th grade may choose to participate in either the fall or the spring production. After next year, the spring productions will be for grades 6-8 only. For the extra-avid theatre students in 5th grade, with a teacher’s recommendation attesting to their academic stability, they may participate in both the fall and spring productions next year.
Disney’s Newsies will require a lot of dance. While we have progressively added more and more dance to each PCK production, Newsies is in a class of its own. Because of this, Mrs. Myers will be teaching summer dance classes for those interested in participating in Newsies. The tuition for these classes is only the cost of the dance shoes, which will then be worn during the span of the production! Classes will be held on Monday mornings, from 10:00-12:00, and will begin on June 18th. Registration will open for these summer dance classes May 21st. Mrs. Myers has a contact to the original costumer of the Broadway show and has access to the specific dance shoes worn by the original cast on Broadway. She will provide the link for you to purchase your shoes upon registration.
