GETTING READY FOR THE FALL PLAY!
Grades > PK-12

Rehearsals for the Fall Play are underway! The Darlington Theatre Department is hard at work in rehearsal and Stagecraft classes preparing once again to bring exciting live theatre to our audiences! Please mark your calendars now for shows October 27, 28 and 29th in the Zelle Black Box.

In Francis Swann’s classic, lighthearted, and fast-paced comedy "Out of the Frying Pan" we meet six starving young actors looking to make it in the business and secretly sharing a rundown New York apartment positioned right above a big-deal eccentric Broadway producer. The kids' plot is to rehearse one of his murder mysteries, finagle him upstairs to see a performance, and convince him to make them all Broadway stars! When the producer suddenly appears one night to borrow a cup of flour, the kids aren't going to let him leave until he sees them perform…and anything goes! Unfortunately, their well-rehearsed plans end up falling gloriously to pieces as one disaster follows the next, eventually throwing them into an improvisational circus with real cops, a prominent politician, quirky landlords and one “in the wrong place at the wrong time” unconscious debutante. Swann sums it up well when a character quotes, “you don’t have to be crazy to be an actor, but it helps.” This production comes at you with bad accents, fake mustaches, dopey situations, silly gags and hopefully, infectious laughter.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE COMPANY!

Varsity Swim Team - 2017-18 Recruiting
Grades > 9-12
If you're interested in being on the varsity swim team for the 2017-18 school year, email Coach Raymond (araymond@darlingtonschool.org). I want to set up some customized apparel for the team this year, so I need an idea of names and numbers. Plus, if you're not currently on a fall sports team, we can talk pre-season conditioning!

The swim team is an excellent program to help you stay in shape for other sports, while also being competitive in all four strokes. Swim will start Nov. 1 and run through early February. We practice Monday-Friday 4-6 p.m. with a potential for shortened practices on Friday if you get your yardage in during the week!

Hope to see you in the pool this winter!!
