Calling all Embassy Creek 3rd, 4th and 5th graders!

After much success the last two school years, the Embassy Creek PTA is very excited to announce that it will be sponsoring Drama Club again this year...for the 3rd year in a row! We will be casting, rehearsing and performing a full-scale production that explores the beauty and love inside of all of us, recognizes that not all fairy tales end with a simple prince and princess...and that sometimes the hero can be a big, green ogre and a loud mouthed donkey – in the fun, silly "fairytale" that is Shrek Jr.!!

Drama Club will meet EVERY WEDNESDAY until 4:30 p.m., beginning on October 4. There will also be ONE weekend rehearsal that will be mandatory the weekend before the performance. The show is being performed much later this year, which gives us plenty of time without the need for multiple weekend rehearsals.

Auditions will be held MOST LIKELY on Wednesday, September 27 from 2:00-4:30 p.m. (depending on post-Irma plans) at Embassy Creek. Under the Drama Club tab on the ECE PTA website is an Audition Form. Please print and fill out the Audition Form and bring it with you to your audition. Under the Drama Club tab, you will also find useful information such as descriptions of all the characters in this show.

Please prepare to sing 1 minute of your favorite song, either a capella or you may bring a background track to sing along to (no vocals allowed on the track) on either CD or an MP3 player. You can sing something as simple as “Happy Birthday” if you’d like.

There will also be a mandatory dance portion to the audition. This will include very simple choreography so the directors can see how well the children move. Students auditioning should wear comfortable clothing and sneakers or dance shoes to the audition.

Drama Club will strictly be on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE basis. Please know that there are only 50 spots available in this club. The FIRST 50 STUDENTS who sign up for the audition via the SignUpGenius audition link will be admitted into the club. Students who wish to join Drama Club, but sign up too late will be placed on a waitlist. In the event that a spot opens up, waitlisted students will be contacted.

If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Klein at or Randee Kaplan at
