The Winter-Spring 2022
Grade 3-6 Musical

Feb 5!

The Grade 3-6 Musical is a long-standing Pierce tradition. 5th and 6th graders may join the cast and 3rd and 4th graders join a chorus to sing the show songs alongside the cast. This year it will be held in Winter & Spring 2022, as shown in the schedule below.  

Cast • We'll have two casts of 24 actors each, thus a maximum of 48 5th & 6th graders. Registration is first-come-first-served and opens at 8AM on Saturday, February 5. All registered participants will audition for roles on February 14 and 15, and rehearsals begin on Monday after February break. Casts will rehearse on a Mon–Wed or Tue–Fri schedule, with rehearsals at Pierce and at the American Legion/VFW building across the street from the library. The casts are directed by long-time Pierce director, Olivia Painchaud with musical direction by Phil Schroeder and choreography by Tara Choat. 

Chorus • We traditionally have two small choruses of 3rd and 4th graders to join in the fun and have a dance feature during the show, but we do not know if Covid protocols will permit this in 2022.
