Vivian Field Middle School to Present an Original Musical

Please join Vivian Field Middle School for an original musical; Revolution Evolution: A Middle School Musical.

May 16 and 17, 2013
Vivian Field Middle School Cafetorium
Tickets: $8 Adults/$5 Child

Vivian Field Theater students showcase their playwriting talents in their original, student written work: Revolution Evolution: A Middle School Musical. The Field Theater students created an original script about middle school life using songs by The Beatles to support the action of the play.

Under the direction of Theater Director Jenae Glanton, students learned playwriting techniques. “The students experienced and learned what it is like to be a playwright. We started with overall story ideas, plot structure and characters. Laura Garcia, guest artist/director and screenwriter, helped us along the way. She really provided the students with some great ideas on pacing and scene structure. There were days where we all experienced ‘writer’s block.’ On those days, we asked the student’s to get up on their feet and improvise dialogue. The students really enjoyed coming up with school scenarios and connecting them with Beatles songs.”

The musical includes a student chorus made up of 25 Vivian Field Choir students under the Music Direction of Karen Lloyd and Sarah Baez. The show consists of a cast, crew, and chorus made up of 50 students from the Vivian Field Choir and Theater Departments.

Revolution Evolution: A Middle School Musical will be performed on Thursday, May 16th, and Friday, May 17th at 7p.m.

The musical will take place in the Vivian Field Cafetorium. Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults. Tickets are on sale at the door or by calling 972-968-3900.
