You are invited!!

This year the 2nd graders are going to be telling the story, "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak.

They have been working hard on their interpretation of this fun story. They have created choreography, simple instrument accompaniments, and put lots of their own creativity into this program. The story will be narrated and acted out while the children perform singing games and songs with the story. The Percussion 101 classes will also be joining us on a couple of the songs. I highly encourage all 2nd grade parents to come and see your child's performance. I am so proud of their hard work and creativity! This could be one of my favorite programs that I have ever done with a group. I hope you can make it!!

When: Tuesday, April 28th

Times: 1:30 pm and 6:30 pm in the Adolphus Gym

Auditions for Max, the Mother and Narrators

There will be auditions Tuesday, April 7th after school in the Music Room from 2:40-3:30. This is the Tuesday after Easter weekend. The children will be reading simple text lines from the book to audition. Please email me at cabrown@lcisd.org to sign your child up for an audition slot, and verify that you will be here to pick your child up at 3:30pm on that day. The specials teachers will be listening to all students auditioning. If your child is in percussion 101, I would recommend that they not audition for one of these speaking parts, this would conflict with their percussion 101 performance. There are so many things going on in this show, that all classes already have a highlighted part of some kind.

What Does my child need for the performance?

  • The children are all going to be the Wild Things.
  • All children will need to dress in Grey and Khaki or Brown
  • We have a program shirt that I encourage you to order if you can. The cost is $7.50 per shirt. The shirt will be dark grey and have "Where the Wild Things Are" Adolphus Spring Musical 2015 on it. Please click on this link for the online order form to secure your child's t-shirt now : http://form.jotform.us/form/50845474710153
  • If you choose not to order a shirt, kids can wear a solid color dark grey shirt.
  • Khaki or Brown Pants, Skirts or capri's will work best. Students may wear crazy hair the day of the program....make sure that hair is not too tall. Colored hair spray is also fine.
  • If they have funny animal ear headbands, that will also be fine, like wolf, bear, cat, dog, etc. The headbands are not required but feel free to wear them if you have them.

I need some help!! Parent Volunteers

I need help with a few things:

  • I need someone to build a little cardboard boat that can be attached to a wagon or scooter so that a Max can sail across the stage....I'm thinking cardboard straps over shoulder kind of thing or cardboard secured to a wagon or scooter type thing...pinterest?
  • I also need parents to help put up some decor before the program. A backdrop has been ordered but needs to be attached to the back wall of the stage, much like the Chistmas program but a Jungle backdrop. We are going to need lots of ticky tack. Mrs. Macha has been working hard on some big Wild things that she has drawn. Kindergarten has also been working on lots of Wild things Masks for the walls.
  • A parent or two who can help direct kids on and off the stage, etc.

If you can help with any of these things, or you have questions, please email me at cabrown@lcisd.org ! Thank you!!
