Welcome Back!!

Welcome to the 2013-2014 School Year!

Plans for this year include a southern style dark comedy for our fall production and one-act, and Beauty and the Beast for our spring musical.  I am also perusing some more serious holocaust dramas for our Winter production.  The Friend’s Club Holiday Show is still TBA, but we are considering both “Elf” and “A Christmas Story.”  We are also planning to revive our Children’s production of “Androcles and the Lion” for Riverfest this year.  I am looking forward to a great year!

Important August Dates:

  • August 8th — First Cherokee Players Meeting @ 8 AM in the auditorium.
  • August 15th and 16th — Auditions for Dearly Departed after school.  See my school website for more info. about this play.
