Leaping Lizards! Rio Rico will “stick up its chin and grin and sing ‘Tomorrow! Tomorrow!’” when RRHS Theatre Productions performs Annie JR. Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning best musical, Annie JR. tells the story of a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents.
The RRHS theatre program is now taking applications for its summer middle school programming. Last summer they offered a full three weeks of classes, workshops, and of course the first-ever district middle school production of Disney’s “My Son Pinocchio Jr.”
With all the excitement and success, RRHS decided to return for three more weeks of activities and classes- such as: vocal, dance, acting, light/sound, costumes/hair/makeup, set building/props/painting, and a new lineup of different activities!
Dedicated theatre student and alumni that come back to share their skills run this summer camp.
This year our middle schoolers will be working on the show “Annie Jr.” With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
If you’re interested in joining RRHS Theatre this summer, then follow the directions below!
Step 1: Complete the Registration Form
The registration form gives us information on our students such as how to contact them, what kind of classes they would like to take, and so on. It also allows the guardian/parent to see information about the pricing and health information to ensure our students are taken care of and safe. Click here to access the Middle School Website.
Step 2: Confirmation
After we receive your registration we will then contact you either by email, mail or phone call within two weeks before the start of camp. Of course, you are always free to contact Mr. Ellison anytime to ensure the registration went through!
Step 3: The Excitement!
About a week before camp starts our student counselors will begin reaching out to parents/guardians and students to answer any questions they may have about what is to come, where to meet, what to wear, etc. We also try our very best to send out a few letters in the mail and/or “the e-mail” that list out things to wear and such a week before time to help prepare.
Step 4: Show-up
The last step and one of the most fun, just showing up! When May 31st finally arrives, then just come on to the high school and watch for our team to help guide your student to the classroom. Parents/Guardians are more than welcome to come and say hello as well! Everyone will pick up their schedules in the main theatre classroom and have a quick meet and greet before we get started and run off to our classes.
