    EVERYONE:     RESPOND BY FEBRUARY 25TH

    I have been asked by the Dance department to recommend students from our program who are available and interested in participating as actors in their April FORMAL DANCE CONCERT.  An outdoor venue is being considered but has not yet been confirmed.

    Selected students for the performance will be given text to read during various parts of the dance perfomance. The text will consist of poetry that supports each dance piece and focuses on themes of resilience and triumph. In fact, if you would like to recommend a poem, please let Sheila know.

    Your CALENDAR COMMITMENT would be:

    1) There will be some rehearsal time of the text with either me or dance faculty, not during A SHOP before April 20th. 

    2) Students must be available for rehearsal with the dancers between 1:00pm and 5:00 pm on APRIL 20, 21, 22 and 23.  I suspect there may be some flexibility if there is an academic class conflict.  

    3) Students must be available for both FORMAL DANCE CONCERT dates of APRIL 23 and 24. The Call time on both dates is  5:30 pm with a Performance time of 7:30 pm.

    Let me know via email by Thursday, February 25th if you would like to be considered. Earlier if possible.           ---    JOE

     

     

    EVERYONE:     

    THEATER HISTORY classes will be held on eight Fridays between February 19th and April 16th. 

    Each of these eight Friday classes will begin at 7:50 am and run for approximately 60 to 75 minutes.

    As usual, all freshmen and sophomores have been given a topic to research and present to the class. Juniors and seniors have been assigned a freshman or sophomore to mentor.

    The eight Friday class sessions will also be recorded for later viewing by any student unable to attend class that day due to an academic class conflict. If you are not present and do not have an academic conflict or an excusable reason as defined by the school handbook then it will count as an UNEXCUSED ABSENCE and you will still be required to watch the recording of the missed class.

    Student Presenters who are not available to attend on the Fridays they are assigned to present their topic will instead pre-record their presentation as a 20-minute conversation with me. This will occur on a pre-arranged weeknight. It will then be viewed by the class at their scheduled Friday session. A second option is to arrange a swap of dates and topic with a classmate so that both students can present their topics live. Such a swap must be approved in advance by Joe Mancuso.

    See Joe if you have any questions.

     

    EVERYONE:
