The Spring 2023 Junior Jammers performing arts class will be performing their own play – Alice in Wonderland! Kids will learn the basics of being in a play and how to perform through games and other activities. At the end of the class, they will perform for their family and friends on our outdoor stage on the weekend of June 3 & 4 (rain date June 10 & 11). This will be a full performance with costumes and microphones.
No auditions are needed for the Jr. Jammers class, everyone who signs up will be able to participate.
