It’s break, and I think we all need it! But the show must go on, and we will continue to develop our VAPA Academy in this time!
What great performances by all of our groups before finals…it was a blast seeing everyone shine on their various stages! The choirs caroled the halls to relieve stress as finals approached.
Finally, the producer of a student film called “The Cleaner” is looking for actors! Check out the flyer below! And have a restful winter break!
Our VAPA Academy is always busy creating new opportunities for our artists! Here is an update on what we have just done and are doing…
Our Local Vocals Club just mounted their Fall Showcase last night in the Grieb Theater. featuring 20 acts out of about 40 who auditioned. The show was a smash, thanks to many different members of VAPA: the Local Vocals members, who held auditions, led workshops in performance technique, and organized and promoted the entire event; the Graphic Design students, who created multiple beautiful flyers for Local Vocals to choose from; and the Drama students, who hung and focused lights, set up the sound, and helped backstage.
The Drama students are preparing for the DTASC Fall Festivals! They compete with other Los Angeles schools in various categories featuring comedic, serious, and musical plays. For example, one category this year is It’s Nice to be Nominated, a play that was nominated for a Tony but did not win. These students have been working hard in class and after school to perfect their scenes, and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us! Come to their preview show at the Grieb Theater on Oct. 18th at 7:00pm – it’s free!
