HENDERSON, KY (3/24/12) – South Heights Elementary Drama Club will present their “Willy Wonka Jr.” spring play on March 27th at the Fine Arts Center.
This is the fourth performance of the drama club. Past performances included Annie, School House Rock, and Alice in Wonderland. Try outs are held for students in the 3rd through 5th grades in the fall. Those selected for the performance must commit to one school year of afterschool and Saturday practices. The show is in collaboration with the afterschool program, Blazer University.
For the first time in the drama club history, a group of teachers and students called “Golden Ticket Productions” have produced a documentary on the making of “Willy Wonka Jr.” This will be shown before each show.
“At South Heights Elementary, two of our core beliefs are: 1. the Arts are a priority method of instruction and engagement and 2. providing an uncommon education. If you come and see the show you will see our actions match our beliefs,” stated Audra Coursey, South Heights Elementary Art and Drama Club teacher.
Show times begin at 12:15 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Tickets are free, but donations will be accepted to support future performances!
On March 28th at 1:00 p.m., South Heights Elementary will unveil its new 5 year vision. The event will take place in the front parking lot and green areas of South Heights Elementary. Parking for attendees will be provided on a grassy hill near the entrance and the softball field parking lot across Sand Lane.
“Our vision and goals will set a very high bar for our school to achieve. We like the bar to be set high because that translates into uncommon opportunities for our students,” remarks Rob Carroll, South Heights Elementary principal.
