newstown talkfhs musicians summer drama workshop

Summer Drama Workshop Jul 8-20

Dates have been set for the 2013 season of the annual Summer Drama Workshop sponsored by the Friona Fine Arts Council. The workshop will start Monday July 8 with performances presented Friday July 19 for junior high and high school and Saturday July 20 for elementary.

Directors’ for this year’s productions are Joy Morton, high school; Candice Geske, junior high; and Allison Johnston, elementary. Students who have completed kindergarten through completed 5th grade are eligible for the elementary show. Students who have completed 6th grade through completed 8th grade may enroll in the junior high show. Students who have completed 9th grade through completed 12th grade may participate in the high school show.

The cost for the workshop has not changed in the over 40 years that the workshop has been in existence. It is still only $25 per person for the entire two weeks.

Elementary rehearsals will be from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Junior high rehearses from 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. High school rehearsals are from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. Rehearsals will be held Monday through Friday both weeks. Public performances will be held Friday and Saturday as stated above.

Elementary students will be assigned snack days and will be asked to bring snacks and drinks for one of the workshop days. Junior high and high school students will need to bring their own snacks to have during breaks.

Information on each show will be available in the coming weeks. There are registration forms available in the high school office for each age group or you may wait and register the first day of the workshop.

Allison Johnston said, “As always we are seeking donations from area businesses and individuals who support the arts. We have not raised the tuition for this workshop so that money would not be a deciding factor for students who want to participate. Because of that we desperately need the help of fine arts supporters to bring the magic of theater to life for these students.”

Donations can be made to the Friona Fine Arts Council and mailed to 801 W. 5th St., Friona, Tx 79035. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Allison Johnston at 806-220-1610 or ajohnsto@frionaisd.com or allisonj1960@hotmail.com.
