Theatre in the Park

The City of La Feria and La Feria Independent School District are excited to announce a new family event for our community—Theatre in the Park.

The first weekend in December, students in third through twelfth grade will perform Aladdin by Dan Neidermyer on an outdoor stage near Veterans Memorial Park/Sports Complex.  Friends, family, and all community members are invited to come, bring a blanket to sit upon and enjoy the magic that is live theatre.   “This is meant to be a collaborative endeavor between the city and the school district to enrich our community.  The community will be treated to free, family entertainment and students will have the opportunity to act on stage for an audience,” said Mrs. Amstutz, one of the directors of the production.

Auditions for students to participate in the play were held on Tuesday, October 4 at the La Feria High School auditorium.  Another audition was held on Sunday, October 9 at 4:00 P.M., also at the La Feria High School.  Mrs. Rhonda Amstutz explains, “I am so excited for our younger students to have the opportunity to participate in live theatre.  There are ten speaking roles in this show and many opportunities for young actors and actresses to come make the story come alive on stage.  We purposely set up two different meeting times in hopes of accommodating everyone who wished to take part.”

City Manager Sunny K. Philip added, “This collaboration between the City and School will provide a venue for students to shine and will also improve the quality of life in our community.”

Anyone interested in this new project may contact Rhonda Amstutz at W. B. Green Jr. High between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at 797-8410 or email her at
