Welcome to the Eastvalley Eagle Chorus! Your directors are Mrs. Amon, Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Steinheimer, and Dr. Bernard. We are so excited to have you in chorus!
It is a privilege to be selected as an Eastvalley Eagle Chorus member. Having been selected as a member of the Eastvalley Eagle Chorus, I pledge the following: To attend all rehearsals or performances unless unable to attend due to illness. To refrain from talking. To refrain from acting in a disruptive manner, or interfering with another students learning. To be respectful at all times. To memorize the music as directed. To watch the Director(s) at all times. To furnish my chorus uniform and wear it to chorus performances as directed. To remember that I am representing Eastvalley at school and community programs and must exhibit my best behavior at all times. To remember that I am making a yearlong commitment to the Eastvalley Eagle Chorus. Misbehavior in chorus or missing a rehearsal earns a strike. You are only excused from chorus if you are absent from school that day. If you receive a strike in chorus, you will be given a notification sheet to be signed and returned by a parent. For the good of the group, three strikes and youre out. Misbehavior in chorus or missing a rehearsal earns a strike. You are only excused from chorus if you are absent from school that day.

Make sure you turn in all your chorus paperwork by next Monday or get a strike (that wouldnt be a good way to start the year).

What is a musical? A MUSICAL is a show that tells a story with songs, dance, and dialogue.
Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka KIDS Roald Dahls timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir comes to life in this special stage adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which features the songs from the classic family film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Candymaker Willy Wonka stages a contest by hiding five golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whoever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy.
Four of the five winning children are terrible brats: the fifth is a likeable young boy named Charlie Bucket who takes the tour in the company of his equally good- natured grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory--or suffer the consequences.
