MYP Performing Arts/Drama Years 3-5

Wednesday Elective:  Drama/Performing Arts (8th -10th grades)

This is CIS’s first year with a drama class.  We are learning all things “dramatic” and hope to put on three productions a year.  Our first endeavor will be  competing in the New Mexico One Act State Competition in November with a play called “The Ransom of Red Chief,”  then a play adapted from Moliere’s “Too Many Doctors” (it is great comedy), and I haven’t chosen the third yet, but it just might be a melodrama.

I am hoping with our new school, drama will have its own stage and place to work.  If any of you have connections with any of the theaters in Albuquerque or Rio  Rancho which might be interested in a partnership with us, please let me know.  We are definitely in need of a performance space.  Also, anyone good at grant writing?  We are starting from scratch so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hope to see you at one or more of our performances!
