Exciting news! The Gatewood Players, our drama and musical theatre club, will be expanding next year! We are asking that all parents of K-7 (rising 1st-8th graders) complete this 5 question survey, so we can make sure the Players reflect what our school community wants. It will take less than 5 minutes. Thank you!

The Gatewood Players is the drama and musical theatre club at Gatewood School. Started in 2020, the Players are expanding with opportunities for students in grades 1-8!
The Gatewood Players strive to enrich the lives of Gatewood students by offering positive experiences in the performing arts. Through instruction and performance, students will be nurtured in self-expression and ensemble teamwork culminating in a drama or musical performance.
Activities during the workshop times will include drama instruction with games and teaching, movement and choreography, vocal warm-ups and instruction, and performance rehearsals. All Gatewood Players meeting times are after school. All Players meet once a week 3:00-4:30 with increased rehearsals closer to show time.
