School Announcements

  • Sign Up for the 8th Grade Play!
    Meeting: Thursday, September 14th from 2:30-3:00

    The Nock Theater Department is thrilled to announce their production schedule for this year's Fall 8th grade play.

    This production offers our 8th grade class an opportunity to participate on stage or behind the scenes in a fun-filled, creative, and highly energetic artistic experience. 

    We will announce this year's show at a short meeting on Thursday.

    Auditions for the production will be held on Monday and Tuesday, September 18 &19  from 2:15 - 4:00. Students only need to attend one of the audition days. We are continuing our commitment to offering a role to all students who audition, so this is more of a placement to find the right role for everyone looking to participate.

    Rehearsals will be held weekly on Thursdays & Fridays from 2:30 - 5:30. Not all students will need to attend all rehearsals and a detailed rehearsal schedule will be shared by the first rehearsal.
