Join the dynamic directing duo made up of our own 3rd-grade and improv teacher Jenny Hutchison and MacGuffin Theatre & Film Company's own Liz Fredette, GFS class of '98, who together will combine their prodigious talents in the production of Disney's Academy-Award-winning musical, The Lion King, to the Poley stage! Come embrace the enchanting characters of Simba, Nala and Rafiki, dance to tribal rhythms and sing unforgettable songs, such as Elton John and Time Rice's Circle of Life and Can you Feel the Love Tonight? Don't miss this amazing opportunity to journey from Pride Rock into the jungle and back in this classic coming-of-age drama. Auditions will b eheld during the first few clubs meetings, and participants will receive a detailed email regarding what to do to prepare. Some of the roles will require more out-of-rehearsal work than others, so please come to the first club meeting having thought about your ability to commit time to memorization and review outside of weekly rehearsals. Please note: This is a two-session club. Participants will need to be available for both the fall and the winter sessions of The Lion King in order to be eligible to perform int he final production scheduled for mid-March. Students who will be taking the Late Shuttle will be picked up in time to make the bus. Please note: GFS is closed on Monday, October 3 and so there will no club on that days and the final club session will take place on Monday, December 5.
