Today I wrote to Head of School Chris Winkler and asked to meet with him early next week. Fall approaches quickly and I would love the chance to sit and chat with him about his expectations for the drama experiences he hopes the students will have. He has already told me will be a spaghetti dinner in mid October and he would like the students to have a piece ready to perform at that point. I think I will look at some of Alan Shepherd’s one acts and see if there is anything appropriate.
I also wrote to the elementary teacher and introduced myself, and asked what she thought would work for her guys for Drama experiences. I am happy to go into her class however often she would like me to, and am pretty excited about perhaps helping with experiences across the curriculum for these littler guys.
There is bound to be a lot of crossover between the Glenforest school drama program and the Center Stage program. Chris and I have already talked a good bit about how there may frequently be not enough students to fill an entire cast list – Glenforest is a small school - so that there will often be opportunities for other kids from the community to participate in the school shows.
Also, with Center Stage being located in the Glenforest building, hopefully many of the Glenforest students will want to take advantage of our community workshops and classes and plays as well.
