UD students will be able to sign up for specific time slots starting Jan. 18. The signup sheet will be located on the C-level performing arts board.

The two performances of Willy Wonka will be on May 12 at 6 p.m. and May 13 at 11 a.m. Students must be able to attend both performances to be in the show.
Students interested in joining the ensemble do not need to audition. Ensemble rehearsals will begin on Feb. 28 and will be on Tuesdays only until April 28, when additional rehearsal days will be added. Students in the ensemble will be playing one or more of the following roles: CandyMan Kids, an Oompa-Loompa Group, a Chorus of Cooks, and Crowd people. Families may register their child now through the enrichment registration, to help coordinate scheduling with other enrichment classes. There is no charge for enrolling in the spring production.

First grade rehearsals will be on Tuesdays from 3-4 p.m. Gr. 2-3 rehearsals will be on Thursdays from 3-4 p.m. The week of May 8 is not finalized but will include some additional after school rehearsals.
