Theater at Silver Oak
Silver Oak PTO offers opportunities for its students to participate in theater with the extracurricular offering of an Upper Grade Play in the fall (grades 4-6) and a Lower Grade Play in the spring (grades 1-3).
PTO partners with Starting Arts to run all the logistics associated with the theater production, rehearsals, and performances for our two annual plays. Starting Arts (SA) is a bay area performing arts company focusing on connecting young people with the arts. We have been working with SA since Fall 2009, and are thankful for the amazing work they do to bring theater to life at Silver Oak.
Parent Volunteers are needed to assist with various small tasks such as supervising rehearsals, assembling the cast board with provided headshots, help with ticket will-call & door-sales, as well as backstage at performances, and planning the post-performance cast party. All needs will be communicated for each play by the PTO Parent Producers.
If you have any questions about the theater programs offered at Silver Oak,
please contact PTO Fine Arts Director, Brooke Miller.
