Hello Annapolis High Drama Co. Members and Parents,
We directors have had a very busy summer but are currently working hard to prepare for the upcoming year and all of the wonderful productions and plans that we have in store!
As many of you already know, Mr. Parr has accepted a job outside of teaching and will no longer be working with us. We will miss him and wish him the best of luck on his new journey. He has been an integral part of this company over the past 5 years and we are certainly sad to see him leave.
Mr. Murphy has accepted a new leadership role within Annapolis High School. He’ll now be working as the Student Testing Coordinator. As a result, he feels that it would be best if he stepped down from directing so that he can focus his time and energy on his new role. We are very excited for him and think he will be a perfect fit in his new position. He’ll still be around the hallways to pester and harass the other directors, so that, at least, is comforting.
Ms. Lorenz spent a big part of her summer on a cross-country road trip. She has now officially driven coast to coast, and has the pictures of her feet in the water on each side of our country to prove it!
Mr. Korbelak spent much of his time at Camp Letts running the day camp and various other responsibilities. He is also taking on a new role at Annapolis High School as the new math department chair. He has had a great summer but he’s ready to get back to a daily work environment that doesn’t include swarms of mosquitoes.
Ms. Hackett could be found around the halls of Annapolis for most of the summer as she helped to run the Summer Bridge Program as the IB Coordinator. She also spent some time writing curriculum for the county. When she wasn’t knee deep in the world of education, she spent her time outdoors walking and hiking with her dog and taking all of the naps she missed during the school year.
Ms. Breidenbaugh traveled to two different music festivals this summer where she worked as an intern and performer. She is also currently working with Annapolis High School’s marching band camp. We hope she wears a lot of sunscreen because it is hot out there!
We hope your summers have all been relaxing, restful, and renewing. This year will see many changes at Annapolis, not just in the drama company, and we are excited to see the growth and continued Panther spirit over this coming school year. Take some time between now and the start of the year to think about what each of you would like to accomplish within the drama company. Maybe it’s trying out a new task or role or preparing for an audition in a different way. Whatever it is, come prepared and excited to learn and grow and most importantly, to be dramatic!
See you soon!
Ms. Lorenz, Mr. Korbelak, Ms. Hackett, and Ms. Breidenbaugh
