"Miscast Cabaret" Tonight (2/19) and Tomorrow (2/20) at 7pm

Meadowdale Players' favorite tradition, the Miscast Cabaret, continues on in 2021 with a virtual performance! This show celebrates the "miscast" in all of us, by featuring actors in roles they would not typically be cast in. This show is a celebration of the many talents in our program, featuring a team of student directors. Join us for a night of song, dance, and fun!

Directed by Jason Jones, Claire Moore, Makayla Jacobson-Trubshaw, and Nikki Susanto.

Power Outages and Snow Days!

POWER OUTAGES: Now that we are moving into the later fall and winter months, we can anticipate that utility outages will occur and this may interfere with remote learning. We have prepared a power outage plan that will be shared with our communities to let everyone know what to do in the event of electricity outages or network interruptions. Check out the plan by clicking here.


SNOW DAYS: As a result of being in remote learning, we are much better equipped to deal with inclement weather (think snow, ice, etc.) than when we were in a full face-to-face learning environment. We anticipate days when snowy or icy weather might require the district to operate on a late start schedule or close, school can still take place. Sorry kids!
