Contest Dates and Rehearsal:

Dear Students and Parents,

 This year our UIL One Act Play District Contest date falls during our scheduled Spring Break. In order to have the best performance possible, I am asking that students rehearse during spring break to prepare for contest.

 It is mandatory that all CAST, CREW and ALTERNATES be at this rehearsal and CONTEST at the scheduled times.


Rehearsal:  Friday  March 11th only 10:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m.

 Please eat before rehearsal begins.

We will run through the entire performance, give notes and run the show again. After rehearsal, everyone will iron/press their own costumes on CAMPUS, check they have all costume pieces, bag them, box up all props, pack up all makeup and mirrors, etc.
