RPS Theatre Presents "True Magic"

Rolla Public Schools Theatre is excited to announce our upcoming production of True Magic! An elf-narrator leads the audience through a musical journey, encountering Santa, Tinkerbell, a man named Ebenezer, a mysterious young magician, and a wonderful, stringless puppet. This original farce, which draws from many sources, including A Christmas Carol, The Comedy of Errors, and Barrie's Peter Pan, is full of mistaken identities, disguises, and unexpected twists and turns. Presented by our RPS 4th-12th grade students, it's the perfect show to kick off the holiday season.

Join us Friday, November 18th, at 7:00 p.m. or Saturday, November 19th, at 2:00 p.m. at the Rolla Middle School Auditorium. Tickets can be purchased in advance at bit.ly/RPSDRAMATIX or at the door 30 minutes prior to showtimes. Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for students and senior citizens, and $5 for children under 5.

Parent Information Series Continues for RHS Counseling Center

The Parent Information Series continues this month with:

The Power of Naviance in College & Career Exploration


During this meeting we will show you & your child the many features of Naviance, a college & career website to which ALL RHS students already have free school-provided accounts. From interest inventories, to course planning, to career exploration, to scholarship searches and a college admission predictor, Naviance is a powerful tool for students to investigate the endless options for their future. Students are encouraged to attend with a parent, but parents may also attend alone. We plan for this to be a hands-on event where participants will receive the information for their parent account.


Group size will be limited, so sign up early. There will be two offerings of the same content; one will be in-person and one will be virtual. Register at: bit.ly/RHSPlan4Success
