Where: Multipurpose Room on the Quail Hollow Campus (up by the Charter Office)
No need to sign up ahead of time. Just show up.

This event was founded in 2006 in Toronto and has now spread to six continents. Every October people in cities around the world dance to "Thriller" at exactly the same time.  Preparation and counting down worldwide is part of the fun, but the feeling of being connected to others and dancing together as one is a Thrill like no other!  Celebrating the truly inspirational genius of Michael Jackson in a living and moving way is what keeps people coming back year after year.  This year the event will be held in Santa Cruz on Saturday, October 27, 2018, at the Louden Nelson Center lawn at 3pm sharp. There is also an option to perform in a flash mob on Halloween in Ben Lomond.

All Charter Musical: Into the Well!: An original rock musical
Last year we had a great turnout with 64 students from each and every program in our charter participating.
Amber will have an informational meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 3pm for students and parents. The meeting will be held in the multipurpose room at the Quail Hollow Campus.
You will get a synopsis of the script, hear about characters and musical numbers, and get detailed info on the rehearsal schedule/requirements.

This year the play will be, "Into the Well". Once again, it will be an original script written by Janinne Chadwick, which Amber directed and choreographed in 2008 with LPRT (Little People's Repertory Theater.) This story incorporates fairy tale characters from many different stories such as Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, The Frog Prince, Goldilocks, Jack and the Beanstalk, and many more with a Giant singing Bob Dylan tunes, punk-rock huntsman, and runway models gone awry! Music ranges from Motown, funk, pop, punk, and good ole' rock n' roll.
Come to our meeting to find out more details!
