Musical 2018 Update

Dear Friends,

We want to thank those who joined us yesterday at the Cappies Gala.

We congratulate Charlie, Will and Laura on their nominations, and Ari on her Spirit Award.

Tonight, we will be attending the Independence Awards Gala; where Charlie has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor.  We wish him the best of luck.

For the 2018 fall musical, we have decided to changed our show.  We will post the show as soon as we are able.

We would still like to schedule auditions for featured roles before school ends.

No Dance audition required!

The auditions will be sign-up only.  The week of June 11th is likely the audition time frame.

Thank you all for a wonderful year!

Miss Laverty, Miss Ann and Lys
