Moving on Up: Grade 9 Orientation Day

Our grade 9 orientation will be taking place on Wednesday, 2nd September, 2015.

It is designed to help our new students make a smooth transition to high school, and will give them an opportunity to take part in informal activities with their peers, meet some of their teachers, and have their questions answered. They’ll also be introduced to our student council, principal, and vice-principals. There will be a pizza lunch on the lawn, after which students will be given their timetables and have a chance to explore the school.

Check in is from 8:30 am, with the day starting at 9:00 am. We expect to wrap up at around 1:00 pm.

See you there!

Don’t Miss the Dance Show!

This year, on May 27th, 28th, and 29th, we are celebrating 20 years of dance at Rosedale!

Tickets can be purchased at the box office during lunch hours, the main office and at the door each evening. All tickets are non-refundable. We do not reserve tickets, so please try to get your tickets ahead of time, especially as the Friday evening show has sold out in the past. All tickets are $15 on Friday evenings. At the Wednesday and Thursday evening performances students and seniors pay only $10 and Adult tickets are $15. It’s a very affordable evening out, and the students are very excited to share their work with their friends and families.

Just a reminder that no photos or filming are allowed during the Dance Night performances. It is distracting and dangerous for the dancers on stage. A professional DVD will be available for purchase in June for only $20. We supply the DVD at a minimal cost to encourage our audiences to watch the live performance as it was meant to be. You don’t want to miss the magic!

Framed Show

Art is a construct. It consists of limitations. As Garry Winogrand once stated, “Photography is about finding out what can happen in the frame.” Senior art students of Rosedale Heights School of the Arts investigate this idea, interpreting the concept of “framed” in this exhibition at the culmination of their school year.

Musical Theatre Production

On April 15th, 16th, and 17th, The Rosedale Heights School of the Arts Musical Theatre Department is proud to present How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, written by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert, with music by Frank Loesser. You’ll love this entertaining romantic comedy full of big production numbers!
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is a musical satire that follows a young man named J. Pierpont Finch, who, with nothing more than his own ambition, charm, and a trusty guidebook, is able to climb the corporate ladder from an entry-level job as a window washer to company chairman. While working for the World Wide Wicket Company – which is “so big that nobody knows exactly what anybody else is doing” – Finch meets Rosemary Pilkington, a secretary with matrimonial ambitions that are all her own . . .

RHSA Drama Production presents Alice by Laura Wade

Laura Wade’s Alice is a fresh and contemporary re-visioning of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. In it, fourteen-year-old Alice Little is grieving the death of her beloved brother Joe, an event that throws her life into turmoil, strains her relationships with her parents, and makes her a virtual recluse in her own home. To cope, Alice retreats into the psychological ‘rabbit hole’ of her own mind, encountering disorder and confusion, mirrored images of real life, and a surreal cast of wonderfully bizarre characters familiar to all those who love Carroll’s classic tale.
