CJ's drama department is trying something new with this year's fall play. Instead of doing a light hearted comedy like The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet or The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, they chose a play with a more serious tone. The play A Piece of My Heart is the first drama the CJ has put on since The Crucible in 2008.
Whether you'd like to learn more about the performing arts program or just want to catch up with friends one last time before summer break, you are invited to enjoy a great evening of music here on campus Thursday, May 3! Don't miss out on this terrific opportunity to share in closing the 2011-12 school year with fellow CJ parents and families.
