Guided by a professional director, students learn a short play (30-40 minutes) to be performed on Civic’s Meijer Majestic Stage for a paying audience as part of the Performance Block Showcase! This trimmed version of the classic Little Women features all your favorite characters as they balance the dynamics of sibling relationships, a father away at war, and new friends and neighbors. This class is the perfect way for your child to experience the excitement of performing for a large audience in a warm, nurturing environment. Everyone who registers will be cast — don’t miss your chance to be part of this exciting opportunity!

*Absences from Technical Rehearsals and Performances will not be allowed.  Absences from Staging Rehearsals are highly discouraged and may have an impact on a student’s participation in the program.


Students are required to have any music, band, orchestra, choir or arts teachers sign off on their Performance Block rehearsal calendar.  This gives the school teachers an opportunity to document a concert or event already on the school calendar as a Performance Block conflict (STAGING REHEARSALS ONLY), while acknowledging that the student has committed to the Performance Block program and should a school concert or event be scheduled on a rehearsal or performance date after signing off, the student will be excused from the concert or event without penalty to their grade.  THIS IS FOR STAGING REHEARSALS ONLY and no exceptions will be made.

Registration can not be done online. Please contact the office to register for Performance Block classes at 616-222-6653.

Registration deadline for the Performance Block is Monday, February 10. Sorry, NO REFUNDS will be given after the registration deadline.
