Hello Lakota West Students, Staff, and Families,
My name is Laura Dobrozsi, and I am excited to announce I am the new Theatre Director for Lakota West High School. I am a graduate of the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati with a BM in Music Education in Choral/General Music, and a Specialization in Jazz Voice. I also have my Master’s Degree in Music Education from Miami University. In 2007, I started the theater program at Lakota Plains Jr. School, and went on to direct 9 musicals during my time there. I am thrilled to be working with all of the students at Lakota West, and can’t wait to get started!
I would like to announce that this year’s musical is, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”! This is an amazing show, with music throughout, and plenty of opportunities for solos, lots of dancing, and many different roles! The music is fun, and covers many genres.
We are under a bit of a time crunch to get things rolling, so I would like to give you some important information now:
· Audition Meeting on Tuesday, October 25 @ 3:15 in the choir room MANDATORY for CAST
· Parent Meeting on Tuesday, October 25 @ 4:30 in the choir room: Meet and Greet!
· Audition Workshops the first two weeks of November, TBA (See Mrs. Bauer)
· Auditions November 14-18 in the Choir Room
· Call Backs November 19 10:00-2:00 in the LWHS Auditorium
During the Audition Meeting, I will give students an audition packet that includes requirements for the audition, and the full rehearsal calendar.
My favorite part of theatre is becoming a tight-knit group through the experiences that we go through together—I am excited to meet my new theatre family, and share my love of music and drama with our students at West!
Every year, the EngineerGirl website sponsors a contest dealing with engineering and its impact on our world. This year’s topic, “Engineering and Animals,” asks students to tell your engineering ideas to improve life for endangered, critically endangered, and vulnerable animals.
EngineerGirl is a website designed by the National Academy of Engineering to bring attention to the exciting opportunities that engineering represents for girls and women.
The essay contest is open for all students (girls and boys) in grades 3-12 through February 1, 2017. Click here for more information!
