Event Details

5th graders begin enrolling December 9th at 9am
3rd/4th graders begin enrolling December 14th at 9am

Tom, a young schoolteacher, is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music. Memorable songs as “Just a Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly” and “Conjunction Junction” bring his lesson plans vividly to life.

This will be a Starting Arts virtual production offered to Cumberland students. Rehearsals will happen over zoom. The usual tech week/performance week will be used to have students create recordings of their part while being guided by the director. Then those recordings will be pieced together and professionally edited into a movie. In April, Starting Arts will host a virtual watch party so that students can invite friends and family (from anywhere!) to see their talent, hard work, and dedication in action! Students will also receive the recording as a souvenir after the watch party.
