JT Moore Drama proudly presents And a Child Shall Lead by Michael Slade, the heroic and true story of children coming of age in Terezin, the Jewish city established by the Nazis near Prague, as a way station before the death camps. In the face of unspeakable horror, these children use their determination and creativity to build lives filled with hope and beauty— playing, studying, making art, and writing an underground newspaper. Their actual poems and stories are woven into a fast-paced drama, evoking the universality of children caught in the insanity of war.
Auditions are open to 5th-8th grades. Please complete the audition form, and turn it into the audition table in front of the auditorium by the morning of August 25th. Workshop is not mandatory, however, it is highly recommended in order to prepare for auditions. See the following links for schedules, character descriptions, side scripts and audition forms. If anyone has questions concerning the fall play or drama club, contact Director Kyla O’Neal. Hope to see lots of new faces there!
