Music – Musicals

Lower Grade Musical

We’re so excited!  After months of hard work learning music, lines, movement and more, Grades 1-4 will present “Not Your Average Joe” in the school gym on Friday, May 5th (7pm) and Saturday, May 6th (4pm).   There’s also a special performance for grandparents and special friends on Friday, May 5th at 10:00 am.  Please plan to come and hear the energy, excitement and joy of these little ones as they sing, dance and tell an “adapted” version of the story of Joseph from the Old Testament.  We’re taking Immanuel’s gym back in time complete with some old time rock n roll music, a beach with surfer dudes riding in a “woody wagon”, and even a diner with fries and shakes.  Yes, it promises to be an exciting and fun-filled performance!

 

Upper Grade Musical

Students in grades 5-8 presented “SHREK The Musical Jr” on Nov. 13-14, 2015.  What an awesome job they did in sharing their God-given talents as they worked together to put on this fun filled show!  From the actors, singers, and dancers to those who managed props, stage, and lighting, all worked together to make this production of SHREK the best that it could be.  Who knew one could learn and have such a great time in a kingdom called Duloc with an ogre and a bunch of fairy tale creatures?

The Kindergarten Welcome

In addition, each school year our kindergarten students learn songs, recitations and more to share at their annual Kindergarten Performance. In May of 2016 Immanuel’s Kindergartners performed “Everything I Learned in Kindergarten”-which included favorites such as “My Mother Is a Baker”, “Let’s Do the Doubles, Baby” and “Pizza Hut”.  What a joy it was to watch those little ones sing, dance and share their knowledge and newly learned skills.  Great job, students–and thanks to Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. DeWitt for their wonderful leadership!  Thanks for demonstrating how you have “grown up” as you’ve progressed through the months of kindergarten.

The 2016-17  kindergarten students will be singing all throughout the months of this school year to prepare for the Kindergarten Welcome performance scheduled for Friday, May 19th at 6:00 p.m.

Preschool Program

Each year,  Immanuel’s PK students perform a special program featuring their singing,  dancing, new knowledge and smiles that receives rave reviews from parents, grandparents and friends.  This year our PK students shared about Jesus’ birth in their Christmas Program on Sunday, December 11 in the church sanctuary. Thanks to our teachers and classroom aides who work so diligently to help these little ones shine and share what they’re learning.
