Lockhurst Musical Theater

Boys and Girls... It's almost time!  The secret's out!  Spread the word!  The next LEAP Musical Theater Production:



We will, of course be performing songs from both shows, as well as a few contemporary songs. Everyone will have a roll!  We have created some very interesting characters for storytelling, etc.  Did you ever want to be a snowman?  A Reindeer?  No experience is necessary!  We need BOYS!!!  Set Wednesday afternoons aside for rehearsals- 2:45 to 4:45.  We look forward to many new faces (K thru 8th) and some of our veteran performers returning from middle school!  Get your enrollment forms in early!  This will be an exciting production and I am sure we will need to put a cap on enrollment.  


Lockhurst Theater Registration Form


Email or mail the forms directly to me before school begins and take advantage of the Early Bird enrollment! We will begin rehearsals the first Wed. in September.  See you then!  Jana
