Who: Our Community Program is open to ALL 2nd - 5th graders in the Portland area.
What: A 60-minute production of Disney’s Broadway adaptation of Frozen explored, rehearsed, and then performed. Kids will learn what it takes to put on a professional show through fun theater and vocal games, as well as being cast in the show. No formal auditions are held ahead of the start date. Any kid who joins the club, joins the cast!
PARENTS please note: Our production classes are a huge commitment! Please be aware the purpose of this class is putting on a show for which we can be proud. All kids 2nd - 5th grade will be asked to work hard to memorize lines, songs, and dances for the performance (sometimes outside of class as homework). We believe theater is a discipline to be respected and learned. This is not simply an after school child care class. Please talk with your children about this commitment and know that attendance is extremely important.
When: Tuesdays, 3:30pm-5:30pm; September 3, 2019 - June 4, 2020 (dates are tentative, will be confirmed in April 2019)

Abernethy Walking Group: The walking group from Abernethy Elementary will ONLY be possible in 2019/2020 with the help of volunteer parents. Please help! If you volunteer for at least 3 walking days in the school year, you get the walk fee waived (f you plan to use this option please choose the payment plan option and contact Caroline so she can adjust your account). You can also get $5 off class for each additional walk. If you want to be a permanent parent walker, you can save $325 off the total cost of the class (that's half off!). We anticipate having a large group of walkers, so we need at least 2 parents per walk. If you can't volunteer at all, the fee is $45 for your child to participate in the walk for the entire year, but PLEASE REMEMBER if we do not have enough volunteer parents we can't have this walking group. The $45 fee covers my one staff member + the additional half hour of care before class starts. While our staff member and volunteer parents will always make your child's safety their #1 priority during the walk, Portland Drama Club and volunteer parents will not be held responsible should an accident happen. If your child can not handle him or herself in a responsible and safe manner, your child will be removed from the walking group. Please dress your child appropriately on days when rain is in the forecast (a change of shoes is helpful) and pack a snack! Thank you! We can't wait for next year.
