'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Full enrolled students in Pre-Academy, Academy I, Academy II and Academy II Extension are encouraged to sign-up to participate in the production of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas.  This production was created in 2017 by Rolando Yanes and showcases the students of the Academy.

Rehearsals take place on Saturdays at the Jodi Peck Center starting on Saturday, September 22.  The rehearsal schedule is determined week-by-week.  Students should keep all of Saturday afternoon open, until 5:00p.m., for these rehearsals and are expected to attend all rehearsals to which they are assigned, unless they speak directly with Rolando about a conflict.  The rehearsal schedule will be posted on the bulletin board at the studio and also on the right of this page.

It is possible to be in both The Nutcracker and this production but please know the time commitment is extensive.

The performance will be at South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center on Sunday, November 18.  More specific details to come.
