TMS Players was founded in 2013 by Kale Thompson, Vocal Music Teacher at Terrill Middle School, and is proud to present its third musical (and its first full-length musical) featuring 6th - 8th grade students in the school. The show is under the direction of Kale Thompson along with Amanda Salcedo, a 5th grade teacher. 

The production saw an overwhelming turnout of students and both Mr. Thompson and Mrs. Salcedo decided to double cast the show in order to accommodate and encourage the amount of students interested in performing arts and Terrill Middle School players. As a result there are four shows and two casts and featuring a total of 90 students.

The red cast will perform the first two shows and the purple cast will perform the latter two.  Cast lists can be found on the website for ticket purchase as listed below. 

According to Mr. Thompson, "From inception, producing our first full-length musical at Terrill Middle School has been a daunting venture.  Two casts and countless hours of rehearsal later, the cast and crew have proven once again that if given a challenge they will meet and surpass all expectations."

Audiences are sure to enjoy this production featuring the familiar Disney music, elaborate costumes and sets. For tickets, click here to order online or purchase them at the door. For questions, contact Kale Thompson at
