SPRING MUSICAL

Please note that as Ms. Oden and I mull over our possibilities there is always a show that rears its head as an option  which could potentially be a better fit  so I am not officially announcing the show until I feel like we have the ducks in a row. I am waiting to hear back from some theatre folk before we make the leap and again as I have explained to the students things could change at auditions.  We will also be collecting what we call an audition fee (which will be applied to the cast fee if you are cast) instead of a cast fee as we may not know exact cost of costumes at this point in time.  Hopefully, by Tuesday all information will be forthcoming. 


I have not gotten word back yet on what I needed to know concerning the show so here is the deal - I am going to put details about auditioning up and the show that we will do if all aspects fall into place but please realize that depending on auditions and who shows up plus these details it could change. 


I have posted the choice on current season, but I will say again that it is subject to change depending on who shows up for auditions and other circumstances. 



Congratulations to the cast and crew of
