Middle School Play 2020: The Audition & The Rehearsal by Don Zolidis

When: January 17 & 18 at 7pm
Where: Branch Theatre – Walter Arts Center
Tickets: $10 for Adults and & $7 for Students

Purchase tickets at tickets.hollandhall.org »

In THE AUDITION, a new theater teacher is bringing a production of A Chorus Line to the high school. Though the hopefuls range from shy to outrageous, and from diva-like to determined, everyone has a chance to step into the spotlight. A hilarious and heartbreaking look at the madness of auditioning and the actors who brave the process for that perfect part.

In THE REHEARSAL, the teacher tries to pull off a production, but putting a musical together is never easy, especially with a megalomaniac stage manager, a lead who’s convinced that Wicked is a much better show, and a girl who is clinically incapable of following directions (she has a doctor’s note to prove it). A hilarious and poignant look behind the scenes of a drama club production filled with — what else? — lots of drama!


State of the School Address

Please join J.P. Culley, Head of School, and J.W. Craft, Chair of Holland Hall’s Board of Trustees, for an evening covering a look at the current state of Holland Hall. Topics include student outcomes, financial well-being, enrollment trends, benchmark data, compelling stories about students and faculty, and strategic plan progress. While a directed conversation, questions are invited throughout and time will also be reserved for questions at the end. There’s much to be excited about and celebrated, along with much to be shared about what’s to come!

When: January 23 at 6:30 p.m.
Where: Lawson Family Conference Room in the Tandy
