JOHN ADAMS MIDDLE SCHOOL THEATRE COMPANY PRODUCTION
OF OLIVER! SET TO DEBUT MARCH 27!

 

SPECIAL PRESS PREVIEW – WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19 from 1:15-1:45pm or 2:00-2:30pm at the John Adams Middle School Auditorium

 

John Adams Middle School (JAMS) is proud to announce its 4th annual theater production. This year our talented students will be performing in the lively hit Broadway musical OLIVER! at 7:00 p.m., March 27, 28, and 29, with a special matinee at 2:00 p.m. March 29. 

 

Performances will take place in the John Adams Middle School Auditorium on the corner of 17th Street and Pearl.

 

JAMS Theatre Company is a free after school program available to all students. The program is supported by grants from the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation, the John Adams Middle School PTSA, and donations from parents, community members and local businesses. The program has tripled in size since its inception four years ago, which means three times as many students have access to an arts education free of charge!  

 

“Nearly 80 JAMS and SMASH students are working on this year’s production!” Emily Arms, Volunteer Producer and Parent Liaison for JAMS Theatre Company highlighted.  “You will be impressed and amazed by what our middle school students can do.”

 

JAMS Theatre Company is led by Director Chad Scheppner of Theatre 31, and is designed to teach JAMS and SMASH students the basics of theater performance and production.
