Welcome to the cast of “Who Pushed Humpty Dumpty?”
Thank you for giving it your all over the last two days at auditions! I am so proud of all of you! This was so hard to cast! Mrs. Govang and I chose each part very carefully thinking about where you were best suited and how you could work with others in the cast to make this show a funny and entertaining success! None of you made it easy! No one disappointed me! You all gave me everything I asked for!
Again, thank you all for your energy and cooperation! I am so excited to spend the next 3 ½ months working with you creating something very special for your families, friends and the families of Littleton! Let’s get started! And remember the most important thing to me is that we all have fun! And I will do my best to make it that way! That will be easy if you continue with what you did at auditions!
With great appreciation,
Dear LMS Students and Parents:
I’m excited to announce the spring play for Littleton Middle School, “Who Pushed Humpty Dumpty?” by Tim Ryan. The show will be performed May 17, 18 and 19 at the LMS Cafetorium! This is a mystery for the entire family! There is a large cast of your favorite nursery rhyme characters in some interesting situations: Jack in the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs, Little Jack Horner, The Old Woman Who Lived in the Show and the Big Bad Wolf, to name just a few.
I’m also very excited to announce that I will be your director! I’m very excited to work with the middle school kids again as the director this time. Having worked with the schools for the past 7 years as a volunteer for the shows, I decided to take the leap and direct!
Important Meeting: There will be a MANDATORY meeting for all families interested in participating in the show on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 6:30 in the middle school cafeteria. This is for returning and new families. If you can’t make this meeting I will also be at the school at 2:30 on the next day, Jan. 18. At this time, you will hear more about the show and what my expectations from students and parents will be. This will also be a chance to collect all contact information from the parents before auditions as well as conflicts you may have and emergency information. (IF you can’t make either of the meetings, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will plan a time to get together with you.)
Auditions will be held on Tuesday, Jan 29 and Thursday, Jan 31 from 2:30-4:30 in the LMS cafeteria. A cast list and rehearsal dates will be posted sometime on Friday, Feb. 1. Mrs. Govang will be assisting me with auditions.
To keep up to speed on all things related to the show, please check out:
All info will be updated as needed on these pages. I will also send out emails and Mrs. Temple will have information in her weekend update when it is necessary.
I hope you are excited as I am about this show.
“That’s all folks!”
See you next Thursday or Friday!
Good morning & Happy Thanksgiving.

We are really coordinating and collecting the costumes for HONK! at LMS. Near all Ensemble members have at least three changes, so we’re looking to have all in a basic black base costume – i.e., black slacks or leggings and a black (preferably long-sleeved) shirt. Anyone who has these item, please bring them to Costume Designer Ms. Nichols by October 30 so they can be labeled and inventoried. If you do NOT have black pants/leggings or a black shirt, please let Ms. Nichols know ASAP at email@example.com.
