Syre PTA & Dandylyon Drama will be teaming up once again this fall for Syre’s 2019-2020 musical. We’re excited about producing the musical “Bad Apples” inspired by Grimm’s Snow White and the 7 Dwarves. “Bad Apples” has lots of exciting characters and plenty of roles to feature all our student actors. Space is limited to 55 students and is open to 5th & 6th graders. If we don’t reach our student cap, we will accept 4th graders through a lottery system. Registration and payment can be conveniently completed on-line at Registration will not open until September 10th when play packets will be distributed via kid mail & email. Families must enroll their students on-line and submit online payment, in addition to turning in their play packet to the front office, and committing to their family volunteer & chaperone job before they are cast & considered enrolled in the play. We will not accept registration or paperwork after the 3:30pm September 20th due date. Please note, play rehearsals will take advantage of partial release Wednesdays this year. Rehearsals will take place Monday-Thursday immediately following dismissal. Ideally, students are expected to be available for rehearsals 2-3 afternoons a week depending on casting and conflicts. The tuition fee is $90. Scholarships are available: just contact Principal Carroll at or Dean Alexander at . Please feel free to contact producers Dani VonGunten at and/or with any play questions.
