The Arts at Mohawk

From Principal Lynn Dole's February 2, 2014 Newsletter:

Greetings from Oz!

Here are some exciting updates! Rehearsals are well under way. The students are working really hard! Backdrop designs are proceeding, and props and sets are starting to emerge. This is very exciting but we still need your help!

Regarding set and props, we are looking for several items on the list below. I would like to take this time to reach out into the school community to see if anyone might have anyone of these items they would be willing to share, lend or give to this production.


-        Old, classic, rough-looking bicycle w/basket for the Wicked Witch
-        PAINT – if you have old cans of brightly colored paint hanging around that you want to share, let us know! Colors like bright yellow, red, green, blue, white, black etc…
-        Old-fashioned suitcase
-        Old wooden wagon with at least one wheel that can be removed and put back on.
-        Thick hemp rope – lots of it
-        GREEN fabric to use as drapery
-        GREEN carpet
-        FABRIC – bright colors
-        Rope ladder or just more rope to make a rope ladder
-        ANY EXTRA building materials you would like to donate are welcome!

Regarding set and prop donation, please contact School Nurse Michelle Larocque at


-        FABRIC – green, brown and any other colors are welcome
-        Glitter!


We are excited to have finalized our production’s logo and are now accepting t-shirt orders! 

T-shirts sizes come in ADULT S, M, L, & XL only.  The ADULT SMALL is comparable to a CHILD LARGE. 

The T-shirt color is "kelly green."

If a cast or crew member is interested in ordering a t-shirt they can do so by coming to rehearsal and I will put them on the list. If you are a supporter of the show you are also welcome to order a t-shirt too! 

I will be taking t-shirt orders until FEBRUARY 12, 2014. Please send your order to  

T-shirts are only $10.00 a shirt. 

When the shirts arrive I will accept payments, which will go into our Student Activities Account.  Check out our t-shirt design below!

Please contact me with any questions or if you just want to help out!
All the best,
