Hello, Current and Future Theatre Students,
 
We, your theatre teachers, are busy planning all sorts of new and exciting projects, trips, and events for the 2017-18 school year. Here is some information about them. If you have further questions or ideas, please feel free to email us at any time.

Auditions! 
 This year, we will be creating a Bellaire theatre company. Auditions will be held on August 22nd, beginning at 10:00 AM for all students new to Bellaire or new to advanced theatre. If you have previously participated in theatre in your Middle School or in the community, or taken a theatre 1 course, come audition to be placed in an advanced, production class. If you are not available on August 22nd, but are interested, let us know and we can find an alternative audition time. If you would like to audition, please email rollagno@houstonisd.org to schedule an audition time.
 
New York!
 We will be taking a trip to New York in mid-October to see Broadway productions and participate in IB theatre workshops (TAPS) with other students from all over the world. This trip will be open to Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors who are taking theatre courses this year. Please see the attached documents HERE for further details. Email rollagno@houstonisd.org with any questions.
 
Texas Thespians!
We will be taking a trip in late November to Grapevine, Texas to participate in the Texas Thespian convention. Students will have the opportunity to participate in workshops and compete, if they chose, in various theatrical events. Please see the attached documents HERE for further details. Email jscott15@houstonisd.org with any questions.
 
 
We are excited about the coming year and hope you are, too!
