Welcome to the Davis Players 2016-2017 season! Davis Players is the 5th grade drama club, run by parent volunteers and filled with students interested in learning more about theater arts. This program is open to ALL 5th graders who are willing to commit their time, effort and a positive attitude to prepare for the performance. Parents are required to volunteer at least 2 of the dates. The club begins with monthly fall workshops including improv and theater games to promote students’ understanding of basic stagecraft (movement and voice), the tryouts, and a full script read-through. Mandatory rehearsals begin in January, every Saturday 3-5pm (except for holidays), through early April. The season will conclude with a final performance on April 7th.

No part is too big and no part is too small! The Davis Players will provide students an opportunity to build self-confidence and creative problem-solving skills. The production of the spring play is part of this process, but the focus is on building a team and working together in a creative way. Should you choose to participate, both students and parents will be required to sign a contract.
