School Play Update!

Thanks to all who sent in registration forms for your students who are interested in participating in the JES’s 2014 production, HOMERUN HARMONY! We had an overwhelming response with 113 kindergarten and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students and 73 4th and 5th grade students registering to participate. As much as we wanted to take all of the students who registered, we just could not due to safety, space, and management issues. This year, we have 125 K-5 students participating in all aspects of the production (including 27 students participating in the various crews!) with 61 students on various wait lists. See more…

 

Register for the School Play

Whether your child loves to act, has a talent for art, or just wants to be included in an incredible experience, there’s something for everyone: backstage crew, costume and props crew, set design crew, publicity crew, chorus members, and actors.  Read about each position and help your child decide the best way to participate. This year Jamestown students will perform a baseball-themed musical production with a musical welcome by kindergarten students.
