On Thursday, September 12, 2013, a Parent Information Session was held for East Pointe Elementary parents to learn more about East Pointe’s newest club…Drama Club. The club, which includes staff members Malynda Sayers, Rick Clow, Stephanie Griffith, Becky Chatman, and Hilary Huneycutt, along with community volunteers, college students, as well as parent volunteers, assists in the educational development and fun theatrical opportunity for all students involved. Recently, East Pointe Drama Club members performed as Indians in the Greenwood High School production of Peter Pan, November 20-23. Therefore, more practices were required for the Drama Club members during the month of November. The members were able to learn and practice their Indian dance by video link. Malynda Sayers, Drama Club Sponsor and 3rd Grade Teacher, states, “On a personal note, I have taken pride in watching my son excel in the musical theatre. Theatre blends responsibility, memory, and social skills with compassion, cooperation, and lifelong friendships. I take pride in this group of inspiring thespians. I have already watched over 52 members grow and succeed by being a part of the Greenwood High School production of Peter Pan. Now, we are getting ready for our January show of 65 cast members.” Drama Club is available for East Pointe Elementary students, Kindergarten through 5th grade. They learn the art of acting, stage presence, and theater etiquette. There is not a membership fee to be in the club; however, ads will be sold for the playbills of the January production of Amy’s Attic. Parents are responsible for ad sells, costumes, and any other unforeseen individual expenses; for example, stage make-up, hair features, props, etc. Auditions were held for Amy’s Attic October 24 and November 7.
