Davis Players Present: “Kid Frankenstein”
When: Friday, April 6th, at 6:30pm and Saturday, April 7th, at 3:30pm
Where: Davis Cafeteria

Come join the 5th grade cast and crew for the hilarity that ensues when a zany experiment comes to life! Frightfully funny laughs are in store for the whole family as the Davis Players present “Kid Frankenstein,” a not-so-scary modern version of Mary Shelley’s classic. Frankie Stein and his friends are science nerds who have an unusual idea for the upcoming Science Fair!  When Doctor Frankenstein’s ancient secret book arrives from Transylvania, the friends are whisked into a sci-fi fantasy of time-warped, weirdly scary and lively adventure!  Can science teacher Mrs. Newton and nutty Principal Klondike restore order as Frankie’s monster terrifies the whole village?

Davis Players is the 5th grade drama club run by parent volunteers and filled with students interested in learning more about theater arts.

2017-2018 Season – General Information

Welcome to the Davis Players 2017-2018 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 6th.

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.
