About This Activity

This year, The Drama Club will be putting on a production of Maurice Sendak and Carole King's REALLY ROSIE. It follows a typical summer day in the life of the “Nutshell Kids,” a group of neighborhood friends, including Pierre, Alligator, Johnny, Chef Jeff from the Nutshell Library books, and Rosie and Kathy from The Sign on Rosie's Door. Rosie — the self-proclaimed sassiest kid on her block of Brooklyn's Avenue P and based on a girl Sendak knew as a child growing up in Brooklyn — entertains everyone by directing and starring in an Oscar-winning movie based on the exciting, dramatic, funny (and slightly exaggerated) story of her life. Drama Club meetings will be run both as rehearsals (starting with warm-ups, followed by blocking, running of scenes, vocal work, and choreography) AND prop, set, & costume design and/or painting and building time. Members will work together to come up with the design of the show and use club time to execute some set and prop pieces, as well as costume pieces. Club members will be expected to memorize their lines and work on their songs and choreography outside of rehearsal. During the first few meetings, members will get to know each other and hold auditions for the show. Liz Fredette is the Company Manager and one of several directors and teachers at MacGuffin Theatre & Film Company. This will be Liz’s sixth year teaching Drama Club after school at TPS! (Please note this club is a continuation from the fall term. Students should have been enrolled during the fall term in order to be participate this term. The club will culminate in a production of the show on Thursday, March 17th.)
