TDPS's spring musical Spring Awakening will hold auditions December 9-11, 2021 with callbacks on December 12. 

Congratulations to all the students, faculty, staff, and members of the TDPS community who came together to create Almanac and the Fall Dance Concert. Both productions featured original student compositions and incredible problem solving and flexibility as we continue to navigate live performance.  We can't wait for the chance to bring more theater and dance to you next semester.
