A Special Board Meeting, followed by the Regular Board Meeting, will be held March 11, 2024, at 5:15 pm and 6:00 pm, respectively, at EFR, location to be determined.
The agendas will be posted on March 8th.

Very few spaces serve so many, so well.

Thanks to you and the entire FSD community, we have many spaces on our campus – inside and outside – that inspire learning and growth opportunities.
 
And right up there at the top of the list is the Bronner Performance Arts Center.

Think about it.
 
Where else could you hold both a wrestling meet and a musical stage production?
 
(Uh, not at the same time, of course…but the concept does sound interesting!)
 
The BPAC recently hosted on of the most unique wrestling meets you’d ever hope to see.
 
For the second straight year, the annual “Battle at the BPAC” featured the wrestling teams of  Frankenmuth and Birch Run. 

This non-conference event took place on the stage under the spotlight with music and jumbo scoreboard in the background. 

Most of the seats were filled by cheering fans and the athletes reported they appreciated competing in a non-traditional venue.
 
Many are already making plans for next year’s “Battle at the BPAC #3.”

The BPAC is also hosting the upcoming production of “The Little Mermaid” February 15-18.
 
Luckily, wrestling mats are easily rolled up and moved away.

So, over the last few weeks, the BPAC has been abuzz with the rehearsals for the musical “The Little Mermaid,” put on by the Fmuth Players on February 15-18.

The talented and energetic cast is made up of around 70 people ranging from 2nd grade to senior adults, with roughly 20 more volunteers making up the production team and crew.

Talk about a group effort!

Tickets are likely to sell-out, so don’t wait to get your tickets to the show by using this link: 

Here are comments from five members of the Muth Community Players

“Our theatre is truly a growing and diverse community of people, who all enjoy stories come to life! From costuming to construction, lights and acting, our volunteers are the reason we are here. With a common goal in mind, students have the opportunity to work alongside someone completely different than them in age, background, or ability. Is there a better way to learn about life? As a Muth Community Players veteran for nearly 11 years, I’ve never been more proud of a cast and crew.” 

“I have been a part of the Muth Community Players for eleven years. I was six years old when I played the role of Little Red Running Shorts in my first show, “The Stinky Cheese Man.” Being in the BPAC community has influenced who I am today. I’ve gained lasting friendships, elevated my self-confidence, and improved my public speaking skills. Without our amazing threatre community, I don’t this would’ve happened. It has helped me discover my calling now I plan to pursue a future as a Music and Drama teacher.”

“When I saw the auditions posting for “The Little Mermaid,” I was elated. I knew Oliana would want to try out as she’s been putting on little shows for us at home forever and dreamed to be in a drama club. I did theatre myself in high school, so I absolutely understood its appeal. Oliana worked hard to prepare for her audition, and I was so proud at how well she did. Little did I know the next words I’d hear her say would be “Momma, please try out, too. I want to do this with you!” How could I say no? Fortunately,  I got a part as a Mersister. The Muth Community Players are so friendly and have really made Oliana and I feel at home with them on stage. We’re grateful to each and every one.”

I have been involved with BPAC since 2019 in so many special ways! It all started with a Christmas show, and from there – I assisted with makeup designs, show photography, and numerous stage roles. I love how our community theatre offers so many ways to include people from all walks of life, young and old. Theatre builds friendships and confidence in our youth, teaches diverse skills to cast and crew alike, and offers a safe haven for for one and all. I can’t express the joy I have in watching my 10-year-old daughter (Piper) on stage, too. It’s fun to explore the magic of the music and the scenery of The Little Mermaid together with her – and invite you and other guests to DIVE IN to a fantastic underwater adventure.”

Remember, the musical production of “The Little Mermaid” is February 15-18.
