Students/Parents/Faculty - TWELFTH NIGHT Audition Dates/Times!

In response to all who have inquired about the audition dates/times for the LP Spring Production of Shakespeare's sparkling comedy, TWELFTH NIGHT, here you go:

Round 1 auditions will be Mon, Dec. 2 and Tues, Dec. 3, starting at 3:15pm in the Gary Room.

Callbacks, should we need them, will be Thursday, Dec. 5, starting at 3:15pm in the Gary Room.

I hope to be able to cast and post the list of actors/roles by Friday, Dec. 6. We will have one full company read-through before the Winter Break.

I'll have a list of scenes and speeches posted on the bulletin board outside the Drama Room for the roles shortly. It would be good to be familiar with them when you come in to audition. You don't need to memorize them, just know what's being said so you can bring the character to life at the audition.  To be continued...!

With aloha, Ms. Murray

Students/Parents/Faculty - Intro to German class

Guten Tag,

I am planning to continue the Intro to German class I started in the summer. Obviously, with a full load of French classes, I am not able to teach during my regular teaching hours  and I can't teach every day. This class would run all of Term 2 (to be continued into Term 3 if enough interest) and would be every Monday from 3:15-4:00 pm in my room. It will be a beginners class with intro to colors, animals, German customs and traditions, music, pronunciation and more.

If you are interested, email me : mschlesser@lapietra.edu and I will have more details coming soon. Adults are welcome too :-). Yes, this class is free of charge but I would ask you to commit to the whole term nonetheless because the class is cumulative. 

Vielen Dank.
