Drama's Annual Musical

December 15, 2017
Dear Students and Parents of SPMS,

I am pleased to announce that the proud tradition of great musicals will continue at SPMS this year with the production of “Hairspray.” The performance will take place at the SPMS auditorium on April 26th, 27th, 28th and 29th with times to-be-announced.  With the retirement of Ms. Tompkins, SPMS will be partnering with the San Gabriel Music Theatre to produce the musical. San Gabriel Valley Music Theatre is a non-profit arts organization “whose mission is to provide Musical Theatre for the San Gabriel Valley Community in an environment reinforcing cultural enrichment, and performing opportunities for national, regional and local talent.”

To maintain the high quality of the past SPMS productions, the new production will be fee-based but includes six-weeks-long workshop/rehearsals. In addition to performing roles, students can participate in backstage and technical roles. All three grades, 6th, 7th and 8th, are invited to join. SPMS is also establishing a fund for students who demonstrate a financial need.

To discuss the musical and answer questions, there will be a parent/student night on Wednesday, December 20th at 6:00 PM in the school auditorium. San Gabriel Valley Music Theatre President Bobby Hundley and I will be there to discuss the program and timelines. Forms will be available for students who wish to join the production. If you can’t make the meeting, forms will be made available via email and the school website with contact information for any questions and/or assistance.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday.
