All ACTors are called for Call Backs on Thursday, September 20th. We hope to announce the results of casting on Friday, at which point you will know which cast you are a part of. Instead of having the parent meeting during Call Backs, we will instead have two parent meetings during the read through rehearsals for each cast from 5:30–6:15 PM on Monday and Tuesday, September 24th and 25th. This is where we will go over the essentials you need to know for the play as well as talk about the many different kinds of volunteer opportunities there are to help the show come together for our kids. Don't worry, there are big and small ways that you can help and we will go over all of it at the meetings.

SchedPosted: Hidden until schedule is ready.

About the Play

Nine year old Danny lives happily in a gypsy caravan with his father but his world is turned upside-down when he learns that his father poaches pheasants from the estate of the nasty, greedy Victor Hazell. One night his father doesn't return from a poaching run and Danny fears the worst. Danny sets off on a courageous journey to find his father and with a little help from the village soon finds himself masterminding the most incredible and exciting plot ever attempted against Victor Hazell.
