    5:30PM and 7PM

    Avery Elementary School Stage


  • We are so excited to announce the 6th annual musical at 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 stage crew to present an entertaining performance for your entire family (and our school).

    PERFORMANCE: We will perform two shows for families on Friday, November 18th at 5:30 and 7:00pm. Tickets are FREE! Bring the entire family.

    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 21st and will close when all spots are full. Please fill out the form as soon as possible. https://tinyurl.com/AveryMusical22 

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

    COSTUMES: We 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 winter items like hats/scarves.  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 not to continue.

    We look forward to this production of Arctic Animal Antics 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 about embarking on this journey with Avery!
