Registration open for summer drama program

Registration Form

Broadalbin-Perth is accepting registrations for its summer drama program now through June 23. The program, which is open to students entering grades 2-9, will present “The Jungle Book, Jr.” to the community after six weeks of rehearsal.

Rehearsals will take place 9 a.m.-noon, Mondays through Thursdays, July 10 through Aug. 17, with tryouts planned for the first week of the program. The performance is scheduled for 6 p.m., Friday, Aug. 18 in the Margaret Robin Blowers Auditorium at BPHS. Tickets to the performance cost $5 each and may be purchased at the door.

“Drama is a unique program that improves students’ self-confidence and social skills,” said program director Michael Ott. “It provides a comfortable environment for kids to take risks without being afraid of failure. Drama is also a great way for students to meet new peers and make new friends. Above all, the group’s success is driven by the students’ dedication and ability to work together as a team.”

Participation in the summer drama program costs $150 per child. Checks should be made payable to Broadalbin-Perth Enrichment Program. Payments may be made any time before the first week of the program.

Participating students are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing to rehearsals each day, since they will be acting and dancing most of the time. Students should also bring a snack each day. Parents and guardians should arrange for their children to be dropped off and picked up on time every day of the program. Parents and children must also attend a brief meeting, 9-9:15 a.m., Monday, July 10, to review program expectations and get answers to their questions.

Enrollment in the program is limited to the first 40 students and is first come, first served. Parents should complete and return the registration form with payment to Ott at BPHS, or email registration information to Ott at by June 23. Registration information includes the child’s name and current grade; parent/guardian name, phone number and email address; emergency contact name and phone number; information about allergies or other special considerations program directors should know about the child; and any dates the child cannot attend the program.
