Please consider getting involved in our theatre program next year – we need people who like to build and paint, have an interest in sewing, fashion and makeup, enjoy organizing and planning, or want to learn more about lighting or sound equipment. We need crew members behind the scenes as well as performers onstage. PM Theatre is hosting a “boot camp” session from August 1-5th so that you can learn more about the opportunities our theatre program can provide. Stop by the main office or room 209 to pick up an informational flier. Next year, the fall play will be “Twelve Angry Jurors” a courtroom-based drama about a jury deliberating over a man’s guilt or innocence. If you like watching Law & Order or have an interest in the law, this one is for you! For the spring musical, we will present the Disney classic “The Little Mermaid”. We’ll need lots of creativity for costumes, puppets and scenery for this musical “under the sea” and will begin planning this summer. The week in August is for you to check us out and see what areas are best suited for you. It is completely free – please grab a flier today and make plans to join us any day that your calendar is open!
