Each year, students from Durand Eastman join with students from Nathaniel Hawthorne School # 25 to perform a full-scale musical. Auditions take place in early Fall, and rehearsals run afterschool throughout the school year. Students learn the vocals, blocking and choreography and practice outside of school. The performance is in early June. Past musicals include: The Little Mermaid Jr., High School Musical 2 Jr., and The Lion King Jr. This year’s musical is Annie Jr. and will be performed June 4 and 5 at 6:30PM.
DE's Got Talent
Our yearly talent show is also a celebration of all the unique talent our students possess. We are always amazed at the singers, dancers, comedians, and other talented students who perform each year. Hosted by Mrs. Bryce, this night event is always a hit.
The DE Percussion Ensemble is an auditioned group made up of 4th and 5th grade students that meets before school once a week. Students compose all the songs performed using African Drums, and also focus on improvisation. They perform twice a year at the Winter and Spring Concerts.
