Loyal Heights Elementary Theatre Arts Group (TAG) is a LHPTA sponsored Enrichment Program and abides by the established qualifications to qualify for such. In addition to reinforcing the LHPTA's mission statement, this program's specific goals are:
-To provide all interested Loyal Heights students positive, relevant introductions to theatre arts.
-To produce quality theatre arts productions and education at our school.
-To encourage and support family participation.
-To encourage positive character qualities.
Each year we take several steps to achieve these goals:
All students who audition are cast in the show and all interested students in 4-5 grade may participate as the rehearsal assistant team (RATs)! This all-inclusive approach secures our Enrichment Program status and provides significant cost savings towards production costs.
We specifically chose scripts that accommodate acting, singing and dancing, exposing the company to a full musical theatre experience. The number of roles are expanded from the original scripts to accommodate all students interested in participating and every effort is made to balance the roles as much as possible within the confines of the scripts and legal constraints of our license agreements. Knowing each company member will have a unique experience, we make considerable effort to ensure that every actor will be prepared, that they will be seen and heard, that they will know they are an integral part of the company, and that they'll have fun.
The entire LHE community is invited to participate through volunteer opportunities, listed on our TAG Team Responsibilities and Volunteer Responsibilities pages, no prior experience is necessary. In addition, Enrichment Courses may be offered in an effort to provide additional possibilities and broader based theatre arts exposure to the company and school. Finally, scholarships & subsidies are available for dues & tickets so that all in our LHE community may be involved.
We extend gratitude to the LHPTA for supporting theatre arts at our school. For more information about our PTA or to make a 100% tax deductible donation, please visit our LHPTA website.
