Come to our information meeting on Friday, September 6th at lunch in C210! We’ll be going over who we are and the tryout process.

The king is lost, the queen is buried alive, the kingdom is in ruins, and all is bleak . . . but this is a comedy after all! When nobody else's worthy of the title of hero, it's up to twins Renzo and Barbarina to unravel the mystery of the Green Bird in time to save everyone from themselves. The wild, chaotic road to "happily ever after" is paved with curses, clowns, demons, enchanted fruit, and a talking statue who keeps losing control of the story he's narrating. This ain't your grandma's commedia dell'arte.  Audition packets will be given out at Drama Club on Friday, September 13th!  See Mrs. Lloyd in the auditorium for further information.                                                                         L.
