Verdugo Woodlands Elementary's
After-School Drama Program
easy, accessible, and fun!
Theatre is back at Verdugo Woodlands!
After more than eight years of after-school drama at VW, we had to take a quick intermission for Covid... but now we're back!
Spotlights is a program offered exclusively to Verdugo Woodlands Elementary students, where the kids will spend nine weeks rehearsing, practicing, and preparing for an originally-written play, based upon the works of William Shakespeare.
Using the characters and themes from Shakespeare's works, students will get an entry level taste of the crazy and sensational tales written over 400 years ago... but updated for the youth of today!
Our originally-written show will give every actor the opportunity to shine on stage, with absolutely NO ONE assigned to play a meaningless "Forest Tree #4" type of role.
Join us as we kick start our crazy program again, and get these VW kids on stage!
WHAT VW PARENTS ARE SAYING...
Spotlights is the best! Mr. Josh and Mr. Jason are great teachers and such positive mentors for all the students. They make sure all the kids get a part and everyone feels special. We are HUGE fans!
I highly recommend this program to any who are considering it. The teachers go to great lengths to ensure that all of the students play a significant part and have a great time. My son's only regret is that the play is now over.
This is an amazing after-school program. It's truly something special, and so wonderful for all the kids. I can't say enough good things!
"A troupe of campers is in for a wild ride as magical woodland creatures invade their dreams and take them on a journey of the fantastical. Maybe the campers shouldn't have listened to their camp counselor's retelling of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", but now it's too late! They're thrown into a fever dream all their own, and the mischievous creatures will force their imaginations to run rampant as the campers get lost in tonight's MIDSUMMER MAYHEM!"
