Helping the Houston Area

Hello Wolverine Theatre!

We have an opportunity to make a difference in the Houston area! One of our former technical theatre students, Matt Barron, is taking his truck down this weekend and wants to be able to help those that need it in any way he can. He is hoping to fill his truck with those necessities that are of an immediate need. If you can help please send a donation item or two with your student either tomorrow or on Friday morning. Matt will pick it all up from us and distribute it to those he is able to assist over the weekend.

Immediate needs are:

  • Contractor trash bags
  • Work gloves
  • Kitchen trash bags
  • Masks
  • Tools to remove carpet
  • Clorox
  • Clorox wipes
  • Packing tape
  • Sharpies
  • Paper towels
  • Toilet paper
  • Toiletries¬†
  • Baby diapers and wipes
  • Adult diapers
  • Bottled Water
  • Etc.

Many people can’t get out to obtain these items themselves, stores are sold out or the lines to check out are hours long. Anything we can do to help out will be greatly appreciated!

“I am only one, but still I am one.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something I can do.”

Information: Mandatory Pre-Audition Meeting for Musical

Hello Wolverines! We hope have had a wonderful summer and are ready to jump back into theatre next week! We can’t wait to see you!

Auditions for our winter musical, Disney’s Beauty & the Beast, will take place in mid-September. Our mandatory pre-audition meeting for both parents and students is scheduled for Wednesday, September 6th from 6:00-7:00PM.

During the pre-audition meeting we will be handing out audition packets for actors and technicians, discussing the rehearsal and performance calendar for the show, discussing the production process and expectations and much more. Our amazing boosters will also take the stage to share some exciting information with you all.

While we know this is a very busy time of year for everyone, it is imperative that at least one parent be in attendance for the meeting. In fact, it is more important that a parent be in attendance than a student! If a parent cannot attend the meeting you must email Mrs. Dalfonzo at prior to the meeting date.

Welcome Mrs. Dalfonzo!

Jonette Dalfonzo will be joining Wakeland Theatre after building an awesome theatre program at Roach Middle School for the last 12 years. Before that she taught for 6 years in Plano and 6 years in Sherman. She has a degree in theatre from the University of North Texas and spent two years studying the Meisner technique in New York.

She is very excited to get started with Wakeland Theatre! It’s going to be a great year!
