Alki’s Musical – Aesop’s Fables
Big News! This year’s school play has been has been chosen! Ms. Scranton will be directing our students in the collection of stories, ‘Aesop’s Fables’. The students will be performing ten fables in all where each rehearsal “group” will do three, then all in the grand finale of the ”Tortoise and the Hare”.
This terrific enrichment opportunity will be offered to 3rd – 5th graders. There will be a mandatory parent meeting for all families involved in the musical on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 6:30 PM. This will be a time for Director Scranton to present this year’s format… which is different than in years past. Sign-ups will also be held that night. The cost of this enrichment program is $75.00 per student (down $20.00 from last year) and should be made payable to the Alki Elementary PTA.
Rehearsals will be Monday, Tuesday OR Thursday…(CHOOSE ONE day to attend!) and will be intensive beginning Nov 14th for 7 weeks, then the entire cast will come together 1/17 through the performance dates, for ALL 3 Rehearsal days to put the show “together”, the last two weeks before the show. Because of the tight schedule, every rehearsal day is mandatory.
We have also increased our performances from two to three. Please join us in February on the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th at West Seattle High School to cheer on our actors & actresses.
