• JETS TEX is a club that is dedicated to supporting the technical needs of theatrical productions mounted at JCHS.

    This is a homepage for students who want to get involved in the backstage production aspects of the JCHS Theatre Program, but might not currently be enrolled in a theatre class.  If you are interested in design, set building, props, costumes, hair/makeup, sound or lighting...please come and join us after school during one of our after school work sessions.  The schedule link is on this page.

    We invite you to give it a try for a couple of work sessions during the month of September so you can figure out if you like it and if you fit in with our group of artists.  You don't have to have any prior knowledge in order to be a part of the JCHS JETS TEX, you just have to want to be there and have a desire to learn and produce art in a group setting.

    After the month of September, we encourage students who have given us a 'trial run' to make a decision about staying ON the crew or finding another extracurricular activity at JCHS to get involved in.  Once October starts, rehearsals become longer and more intense and we can only use students who are committed to helping us crew the show until it is over.  Opening night for our ONE ACT will be on Tuesday, 10/29/19 and then we'll take our ONE ACT to competition at the District Trumbauer Theatre Festival on Nov. 2, 2019 at Lee High School.  If we do well there and we advance to state, we invite all of our crew members to attend the State Trumbauer Festival with us at Troy State University from Dec. 5-7, 2019.  If students decide to attend the State Festival, there is a $150 fee that is due by 11/15/19.

    If you have any questions, please come see Mr. Merritt or send him an email at:    mcmerritt@madisoncity.k12.al.us


  • Rehearsal dates + times for Fall 19 (for after school JETS TEX)

    There is no need to sign & return second sheet of this document, but this document is simply to let you know when we are working after school this semester.  If you are volunteering on the JETS TEX crew for Fall 19, please wear older clothes you don't mind messing up & be in the seats at 3:40 PM on work call dates.  Wear ALL BLACK starting about 2 weeks prior to opening night to all rehearsals.  Bring a snack with you when we are rehearsing until 7 PM and not bringing in meals for students.  There is no fee to join JETS TEX after school unless you decide you'd like to attend the State Trumbauer Festival in Dec. 2019.  If you decide to join us at the State Trumbauer Festival at Troy State University, you will need to pay production fees of $150 by Nov. 15, 2019.
