2021 Summer Fine Arts Academy Presents: The Wizard of Oz

UCISD Students, Parents, and Guardians,
This year's program will begin June 4, 2021, and end July 2, 2021. Students will attend Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm. Some students may be asked to stay longer depending on the roles received.  Performances will be held Thursday, July 1st, and Friday, July 2nd. Students will also be asked to perform on August 19, 2021, for our UCISD Teachers at Convocation. They will be required to be present at rehearsals from 8/16/2021 through 8/18/2021 from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm. On the day of the convocation, students will be asked to arrive at 7:30 am and will be released at 11:00 am.
This summer fine arts academy is offered free of charge. Free transportation will coincide with summer school days between 8:00 am and 2:30 pm.  Free breakfast and lunch are also provided to our academy students. Unfortunately, a student that does not pass to the next grade level or does not pass the required state tests will not be able to participate in the summer fine arts academy as they will be required to take other summer school classes.  Attendance will be on a first come first served basis so submit your forms as early as possible.
To register online, click 2021 Summer Fine Arts Academy Registration Form.  For those that cannot register online, we will have on-site registration on May 21, 2021, from 5 pm to 7 pm, and June 1, 2021, from 1 pm to 3 pm. 
There will be auditions held at Uvalde High School in the John. H. Harrell Auditorium and Black Box from 2 pm to 6 pm on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, and callbacks will be held on Thursday, June 3, 2021, from 2 pm to 6 pm to determine which role is best for each student. At this time parents will be given more information and have time to ask questions. (Only one parent will be allowed in the auditorium.)
Thank you for your interest in the Summer Fine Arts Academy. 
Let's follow the yellow brick road.  We're off to see the Wizard!!!
