Homeschool Drama Club and Studio Drama Club Musicals
The Homeschool Drama Club and Studio Drama Club at LaGrange Piano and More presented two end-of-semester musicals in May. The Homeschool Drama Club was up first with ‘Fiddler on the Roof, Jr,’ on May 10-11. The beloved musical follows beleaguered milkman Tevya as he tries to find suitable husbands for his daughters and includes favorite musical numbers such as ‘Tradition,’ ‘Matchmaker, Matchmaker,’ and ‘If I were a Rich Man.’ The cast included 24 homeschoolers ages 8-18.
The next week Studio Drama Club presented ‘Disney’s 101 Dalmatians KIDS.’ ‘It was crazy having two shows back-to-back, but the kids all rose to the task and learned so much over the semester.’
‘101 Dalmatians’ included favorite songs such as ‘Cruella de Vil’ and ‘Dalmatian Plantation’.
‘Both of them were our most challenging shows to date,’ said club director Noelle Reed. ‘The songs, the choreography, the sets…it was all kicked up a notch. The neat thing about club is that they get to do more than just be in a play. They also help construct costumes, work on the set, collect props, and run the show backstage. Without a doubt one of the things they all say they enjoyed most at the end of the semester is the friendships they made.’
