  •  "A Barnyard Moosical" is a hilarious and imaginative mini-musical about a unique and talented group of animals living at this unusual farm. Between the gourmet goats that refuse to eat garbage, a chorus line of hoofing cows, neatnik pigs and funky dancing chickens, the musical will be sure to tickle the imagination of performers and audiences alike.

  • We are so excited to announce the 1st and 2nd Grade annual musical at the Avery Elementary School stage: 

    WHAT IS A MUSICAL? A musical is a performance that combines song, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance to tell a story. 

    WHAT WILL MY CHILD DO?  1st and 2nd grade students will sing, dance, and act their way through a 6 scene musical. Students will create pieces of their costume during rehearsals and work with our volunteers to present an entertaining performance for your entire family (and our school).

    PERFORMANCE:  We will present two shows for families on Friday, November 17th at 5:30 and 7:00pm. Ticket information to follow.

    REGISTRATION: Space is very limited and spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Please respond quickly to assure that your child gets a spot.  Registration will open on Wednesday, September 20st and will close when all spots are full. Please fill out the form as soon as possible. https://tinyurl.com/Averymusical2023 

    FEE:  The cost of this program will be $70. This includes all rehearsals, and a show t-shirt. All checks are due September 28th. Checks should be made payable to the Town of Dedham (financial assistance is available). 

    COSTUMESWe will provide the outer layer of your child’s costume. Students will be making elements of their costume during rehearsal time. You will be asked only to provide a bottom layer which is typically black pants/black shirt and quite possibly some accessories including kitchen items.  Please use items you already own for this and do not purchase anything. Details will follow.

    EXPECTATIONS: Avery School rules and behaviors are expected during this after school activity. If unexpected behaviors continue after three rehearsals students will be asked to not continue. 

    Attendance Policy-  Students may miss a limited amount of dates with notice. The policy will be on a student to student basis but shall not exceed 3 total missed rehearsals.

    We look forward to this production of Barnyard Moosical with our 1st and 2nd graders.  Please email us with any questions about the musical.  We will be offering a 3rd, 4th, 5th Grade musical in January. We are so excited to embark on this journey with Avery!
