Announcing the Shrek, Jr. Stage Crew!!!

The 4 stage managers were chosen by Mr. Piasecki and Mrs. Allen. Each of the other positions was chosen by random drawing from among students who selected the given position as their first choice. Students who indicated Stage Manager as their first choice and were not chosen for that position had their names placed in the drawing for their second choice position.

Important Meeting for Parents of Shrek Cast and Crew on Monday, 11/18 at 7:00 PM in the BSES LGI!!!!

Information about rehearsals and other aspects of the play will be shared. Mr. Cashell will oversee the artistic direction of the play, but the production, in all its many aspects, cannot go on with out the assistance of an army of parent volunteers! We will need a parent or two to be the Play Manager(s) to coordinate all of the volunteers and to work closely with Mr. Cashell. Set construction, costume design, make-up, rehearsal supervision, refreshment sales, etc.--there is a job for everyone! We have been incredibly fortunate over the years to have parents who rise to the occasion to help create productions that kids will long remember and treasure!

Link to Digital Recordings for the Play

Below is link to a Google doc containing digital recordings of songs from the play:

Students will find out which songs are necessary for them to know based on their part. More information will be shared at parent meeting on Mon. 11/18 and in future communications.

When are rehearsals?

Rehearsals are on Wednesdays until 5:00 PM. The number of rehearsals will depend on the part a student plays. Mr. Cashell, our director, works with small groups at rehearsals until it gets within a couple weeks of the play performance, when he schedules several “all cast” rehearsals. You will receive a schedule which indicates when your child needs to be at rehearsal. In performance week there will likely be "all cast" rehearsals on Sat. 3/21, Mon. 3/23, Tues. 3/24, and Wed. 3/25.

4th grade Orchestra also rehearses on Wednesdays. We have been able to work it out if students are in the play and in 4th Grade Orchestra. These students attend orchestra until 4:00 and then go to play practice until 5:00.

Performance Dates: Thursday, March 26th and Friday, March 27th at 7:00 PM in the BSES Gym
