Davis Players is a volunteer-run 5th grade theater club that begins in September with monthly workshops and ramps up in January with weekly rehearsals, leading up to a production in April. The program is open to ALL 5th graders who are willing to commit their time, effort and a positive attitude to prepare for the performance.
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.
Parents are required to volunteer at least 2 of the rehearsal dates. Fall Workshops will be once a month on Sundays 3-5pm and will include 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 April. The season will conclude with a final performance on April 24th and 25th.
Register your 5th grader
The fee for the club is $20.Register online* or by check made payable to “Davis PTA” with “Davis Players” in the memo line and sent to the office.
* Online registration requires the parent/guardian to register for a free Dolphin Parent Toolkit account (form will only be visible if you have added your 5th grader to the Toolkit).
PARENTS: if you know for sure that your child has unavoidable conflicts on two or more rehearsal dates, or any of the production week dates, please do not sign them up as this causes problems for the rest of the cast.
