This week, Gregory elementary and middle schools welcomed Kevin Earlywine and Emilie Baartman from the Dakota Players. The Dakota Players is a group of people from the Black Hills Playhouse who travel around the state to put on full-scale productions with parts for students of every age, skill, and experience level.

36 Students from BK-8th grade auditioned Monday and received roles in the play The Bard of Ballyfiddle. They have been practicing every day this week since then from 3:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Students were expected to be dedicated to show up to every rehearsal for their specific groups. Costumes, sets, props, etc. will be provided by the Dakota Players for the play.

In The Bard of Ballyfiddle, the Sheldon W. Serious School is in trouble! Principal Farley has just implemented the “Serious Plan for Proper Education”, which features a no-joy policy and most devastatingly the elimination of music (which has been proven to cause joy!). A strange Bard and a Mysterious Symphony of Sound show up, and the children discover the magical word of Ballyfiddle. When they learn to listen to their hearts, they devise a clever plan for restoring joy to their school.

The students will have one performance on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. in the Gregory High School Gym. The cost will be $5 for adults and $3 for children at the door.
