The Visual & Performing Arts Club produces a play and a musical for our FMS Community each year. All students who want to perform on stage or be a part of the crew that helps behind the scenes can participate. We work as a BIG TEAM to put on a Fall Play and a Winter Musical. Students also get to participate at a Theatre Festival in the Winter to develop further as theatre students. This year, our Fall Play is Kid, Frankenstein and our Winter Musical is Disney's Mulan, Jr. Both offer discovery and experience in theatre for those students wanting to pursue classes or productions in high school.
Our mission is for middle schoolers to discover their performing passion, gain more confidence speaking in front of an audience, gain self awareness, and develop their creative side by learning the behind the scene jobs of a show: creative lighting, managing sound & music, painting the set, creating props, organizing the costumes, and running the show. No experience is necessary, but must be a team player. Students who sign up for either the Drama or the Technical side of our Theatrical productions must be available for all rehearsals. We announce meeting dates, auditions, and special events through the morning bulletin.
