November 2015

The Fall semester is about to wrap up and 2016 is just around the corner. The Holidays are approaching and November is always such a fun time to give thanks for family and friends.

Speaking of thanks, I want to thank as well as congratulate the cast and crew of Ramona Quimby! This show was a joy to direct and audiences loved it! This play, based on the beloved book series, was a hit with our school and public performances. Each night, the cast captivated the audience in telling the story of the energetic and sometimes mischievous Ramona Quimby. We loved our time spent on 'Klickitat Street' and hope that you enjoyed it as well.

Of course, the Academy is extremely lucky to have had so much support in producing this play. I want to thank Krystal Burns who served as Assistant Director, Macey Gibaszek and Megan Nair who helped as Production Assistants, Academy parent Amanda Fike who helped backstage, Tana Roberson for her wonderful set design, the staff of ALT and ALT Board of Directors for their continued support, and to all the wonderful parents and family volunteers! I also want to thank Chick-Fil-A on Georgia Street and Joe Tacos for providing lunch during our school performances. The Academy is certainly blessed to have such an amazing group of individuals and businesses helping provide even more magic of live theatre to these students.

As we wrap up one show, we quickly set our sights on the next. The Academy will be “learning our lessons well” as we produce the ever popular musical Godspell. This show will be staged at the ALT Adventure Space and is going to be a real treat for audiences of all ages. Be sure to mark your calendars as we are certainly excited to produce this musical January 8th – 17th.

Lastly, I want to remind everyone that Spring Registration begins on December 14th and Academy classes begin January 11th. Be sure to check out our full class schedule online starting November 30th and maybe add an ALT Academy class to your Christmas wish list! What better gift could Santa possibly bring than great training from a great Academy!

Happy Holidays!
