Recent News: The Auditorium and the 2017-18 Season

We’re baaaaaack.

A lot is already going on in the first few days here at Page Middle School. We are officially IN our auditorium – there is still a great deal of organizing to do, but it is coming together FAST.

The official ribbon cutting for the theater will take place Wednesday, August 16 at 10:30pm. Dr. Looney, county commissioners, parents, and other dignitaries will be there to celebrate the grand opening of our space.

The Page Middle Drama Department will do their official OPENING NIGHT GALA on Tuesday, August 22 at 7:00pm. It is a semi-formal affair, and there will be food and student Broadway-style entertainment. This will also be the night we reveal the 2017-18 season of events.

The fall theatre production will take place October 27 – November 4. Auditions will be August 28, 29, and 30. The production will be revealed at our Opening Night Gala.

Let’s hit the ground running for an exciting 2017-18 season!
