THIS YEAR'S 5th GRADE MUSICAL!

A Note from Miss Steinbach,

Dear Fifth Grade Families,


It gives me great pleasure to offer the 5th grade students an after-school experience that I hope they never forget. This year’s production, “The Big Bad Musical” is a courtroom drama. The jury—the audience—must decide the outcome of the biggest trial ever in the fairy-tale world! The notorious Big Bad Wolf is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by storybooks of quirky characters who want to get even: Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs, the Shepherd in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf, Sydney Grimm as the commentator on live Court TV, and the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest—the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother.


As I move forward with this year's production, I need some information from families so I can plan around current health and safety guidelines. Please only fill out this form if your fifth grader is interested in auditioning for the musical. Please fill it out no later than Friday, October 15th so I can plan a virtual meeting for parents to answer any questions, plan audition dates, and send out permission slips.


Fifth Grade Musical Questionnaire form - Due October 15


Please visit the 5th grade musical website for more information about the production. This site will be used throughout the entire process and will be updated when more information becomes available.
