Cast list for Willy Wonka

“Want to change the world, there’s nothing to it.”

Congrats to everyone – We are going to have so much fun. I ended up double casting most (but not all) of the roles. Everyone should find their name on this list.  If you don’t please email me.  Please do not email or call the theatre for any other reason. We are very excited about working with everyone in all the roles.

The first rehearsal is Tuesday, Sept. 25th from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Grandstreet Theatre. Everyone in both casts, plus one parent, should be there unless it is on your conflict sheet.

At the first rehearsal we will hand out the rehearsal schedule, secret pal forms, show shirt orders and go over expectations concerning rehearsals and performances.

Gobstopper cast performs on:
Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:30 and Saturdays at 2:30.

Wonka Bar cast performs on:
Thursdays and Saturdays at 7:30 and Sundays at 2:30

New! Social Skills Theatre Class after-school

This unique class is designed to promote social skills (pragmatics) through the fun and powerful medium of theatre. The participants are provided an opportunity to learn and practice age-appropriate social skills and work on the fundamentals of acting.Theatre activities are used to teach emotion recognition and expression, non-verbal behaviors and gestures, listening skills, eye contact, conversation skills, strategies to handle social situations, and critical social skills. The theatre is a safe place for individuals to try new things and to make mistakes they can learn from. Theatre is fun, motivating, and highly structured.

The class will be led by a licensed speech-language pathologist and theatre professional. It is geared for those with social communications issues including but not limited to Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and other social deficits, but all abilities are welcomed!

The first session begins Tuesday, November 6, 2018

Tuesdays from 3:45-5:15

Grades: 1st-4th

Sample resume

Here is a sample resume for those of you wondering about a good format.

Beware of some common mistakes:
1. Grandstreet is one word (not Grand Street)
2. List your shows with the most recent at the top
3. Don’t list a category if you have no experience (i.e commercials, film)
4. Remember to list your special abilities and make sure you can actually do those things.

Halloween at Theatre School

Halloween Parties at Grandstreet

The week of October 29th (Monday) through Nov 1st we will be celebrating Halloween at Theatre School.  Please wear your costume to class for our annual Halloween parade and be prepared to play Halloween games.

Sneak Previews

These are the final dress rehearsals for our main stage shows. Currently enrolled theatre school students are invited to watch with the understanding that the show is not quite finished. It is a great learning opportunity for all the students. Not all of the shows are age appropriate and we will let you know, however, we feel it’s important for the students to see as much live theatre as possible and are open to discussion about all of the productions. Please click on the link and read the description of each show. No parents or family members are invited.
