CINDERHOOD TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE!

GJHP is happy to announce that this years 8th grade project is…

CINDERHOOD 

What happens when two of your favorite Fairy Tales are performed at the exact same time? You get a mixed-up-turned-around tale!

“CinderHood” is the fun-filled musical by Adam Busch, based on the original story by Dennis McCarthy.

This family friendly show takes the actors and the audience on a fast paced journey, as we see the stories of Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood intertwined. Imagine Cinderella visiting Granny’s house, and Little Red losing a shoe at the Prince’s Ball!

Will they all find their ‘happily ever after’? 

Come see “CinderHood” and find out!!

Variety Show Info!

Variety Show Info 

The GJHP Variety Show is a loosely scripted performance opportunity for students Grade 5th-8th. While it features the various talents of the participants…it is not a “Talent Show”.

Each performer will be in an Opening and Closing number as well as be placed in at least one featured ‘scene’–as actor, and singer.  Some actors may be used in supporting ‘roles’ in additional scenes.

This year’s Show: “A Broadway Odd-essey IV…in 3-D” is a follow up to last years successful production.  It will take a look at several popular Broadway Musicals…in a fun and new way.  For example…what would happen if  “Grease” was turned into a musical about the country “Greece!”

There are NO auditions required–or previous performance experience.  All are welcome to join the fun.

Important Dates:

What is the 6th Grade Social?

The Sixth Grade Social is a social event for all Glencoe Sixth Graders.  It is held in the small gym at Central School and is sponsored by the GJHP (Glencoe Junior High Project).  Our Youth Directors and volunteer board members will be there to chaperone the event and make sure the night is filled with fun.  This year FAMOS! DJ Entertainment will be there to keep the music playing and familiarizing the kids with some of the traditional activities they will encounter next year at Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.  Drinks and treats will be provided.

What is the attire for the social?

The attire for the social varies by what the individual is comfortable wearing.  Our goal is for everyone to have fun and be comfortable.  Many of the girls dress in nice dresses, however, nice pants or other outfits are completely acceptable.  Some girls wear heels, others choose comfort and wear flats or even Converse.  It is up to the individual.  Most of the boys wear khakis or dress pants and a dress shirt.  Some of the boys choose to wear ties or even jackets.  That is completely dependent upon the comfort of the individual.

Is this a couples dance?

This is not a couples dance but rather a social gathering for all Glencoe Sixth Grade Students.  Often groups of students arrive together, but EVERYONE is welcome.
More information and registration will be available in the fall of 2017 for the 2018 6th Grade Social!
