The decision not to cast all students who auditioned was a tough one. The quantity of costumes, schedules needing arranging, and people to teach all dances and songs was overwhelming in the past. For everyone’s sanity we felt this was the right thing to do. I hope everyone who auditioned will still be a part of the show in other areas of the production.


Thank you for sharing your talents with us. We look forward to working with you on Pippin and getting to know each of you better.

Shakespeare in the Schools takes place in February/March. Great River Shakespeare Festival actors direct the three week residency and production of an abridged play.

Our Spring show is the play. This is a production that gives students the opportunity to act, run lighting, stage manage, build sets, move scenery, and be a part of a wonderful team experience. A great opportunity to explore the art of non singing theater. See our Spring Play page for more info on this years show!
