Below is a list of After School Performing Arts opportunities available to All Students in Every Program of our charter:

Thrill the World! 2017 (Michael Jackson's "Thriller" Event)
When: Thursdays: Fridays Oct. 20 and Oct. 27 from 3-4:30pm
Where: Rm. 29 (the dance room) on the Quail Hollow Campus
No need to sign up ahead of time. Just show up.

This event was founded in 2006 in Toronto, and has now spread to six continents. Every October people in cities around the world dance to "Thriller" at exactly the same time.  Preparation and counting down worldwide is part of the fun, but the feeling of being connected to others and dancing together as one is a Thrill like no other!  Celebrating the truly inspirational genius of Michael Jackson in a living and moving way is what keeps people coming back year after year.  This year the event will be held in Santa Cruz on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the Louden Nelson Center lawn at 3pm sharp.

All Charter Musical: Cinder-Idol-What the World Needs Now!
Last year we had a great turnout with 60 students from each and every program in our charter participating.
Amber will have an informational meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 3pm for students and parents. The meeting will be held room 17 at the Quail Hollow Campus.
You will get a synopsis of the script, hear about characters and musical numbers, and get detailed info on the rehearsal schedule/requirements.

This year, the play will be, "Cinder-Idol-What the World Needs Now". Once again, it will be an original script written by Janinne Chadwick, which Amber directed and choreographed in 2005 with LPRT (Little People's Repertory Theater.) It is the classic tale twisted together with today's reality talent show craze, with step-sisters resembling the Spice Girls, motown fairy godparents, 80's big hair rockers, and music ranging from pop, rock n' roll, motown, and the Beatles. 
Come to our meeting to find out more details!
