    SUBMISSION OF PHYSICAL: You may now upload an electronic copy of a doctor-completed physical form within the Physicians section of the Summer Mailing Forms. If you have already completed your other forms and would now like to upload a physical, please log in to view your summary and select Edit from the drop-down. You may also send it in hard copy to the child's school, or email it to the school's klschools address located in the Contact Information. You do not need to provide it here if it has already been submitted in a 2017-18 Fall Athletics registration.

    STUDENT NAME NOT APPEARING: your student's name will be pre-populated as a participant choice only if he/she has previously participated in HS or MS athletics.

    SECTION SELECTION (the first data-entry field): please select the SECTION that corresponds to the grade level that this PARTICIPANT will be entering in the Fall. If the school and grade level that you need do not appear, then you may have selected the incorrect program for this PARTICIPANT. Please return to the dashboard and enter the full name of the school into the "I want to register for a program at" field.

    FINDING ANOTHER PROGRAM: if you have finished with your John Jay High School 2017 Summer Mailing Forms submission, and would like to next submit your HS athlete's forms for the Athletics Dept, please  return to the dashboard and enter  John Jay Athletics into the "I want to register for a program at:" field.

    UPLOADING A HEALTH APPRAISAL FORM: if you have completed your child’s summer mailing forms, and would like to go back in to upload his/her Health Appraisal Form (required for grades K, 2, 4, 7, 10 and all new entrants), please use the “View or Edit my Registrations” button to update the existing Participant record for your child.

Little Women, the musical, opens at John Jay High School on March 30

  John Jay Theatre Workshop’s production of Little Women, the musical, opens on Thursday, March 30, at 7:00 p.m. Additional evening performances are Friday, March 31, and Saturday, April 1, and there is a matinee on Saturday, April 1, at 1:00 p.m.

Tickets are $10 adults, and $5 students and senior citizens, and will be sold in the Theatre Lobby from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 19; Tuesday, March 21; Friday, March 24; and Tuesday, March 28. In addition, tickets will be sold one hour prior to each performance in the theatre lobby.  

The musical, written by Allan Knee, with lyrics by Mindi Dickstein, and music by Jason Howland, opened on Broadway in 2005. John Jay’s show, directed by Amy M. Geiger, features a cast, crew and pit orchestra of nearly sixty-five students.

Little Women, the musical, is based on Louisa May Alcott's classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel, follows the adventures of the four March sisters—brassy, tomboy-like, aspiring writer Jo, romantic Meg, pretentious Amy, and kind-hearted Beth.

Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested. Her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from her heart. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself, her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.

“What makes our productions truly special are the alumni that continue to return year after year to work on our productions. About twelve alumni are participating in Little Women,” said director Amy Geiger, a music teacher at JJHS.
 
Kathleen Hefferon, Assistant Director and Dramaturg, is an alumni of John Jay High School, class of 2009. Hefferon majored in Shakespeare and the history of musical theater at New York University’s Gallatin School and is pursuing a career as a director in New York City.

  “I’ve come back to John Jay for the last four or five years to work on shows,” said Hefferon. “It’s fantastic to work with people who were so formative for me when I was in high school.”

“I was eleven when Little Women, the musical, opened on Broadway. I fell in love with it—I went to see it five times!”
