Mrs. Asay's funeral

As you all know, an audience member passed away last Saturday night. Her name is Anna Marie Asay and her family believes she is happy and reuniting with her husband that passed 6 years ago. We would like to pay our respects by sending over a giant signed card --so please stop by Mrs. Crane's room TUESDAY to get it signed.  We are also sending a bouquet of flowers and you are invited to contribute a dollar or 2 to that if you'd like.

She enjoyed the first act of our show so much, and all involved are peaceful that she died happy.  Please don't spread rumors or drama. My little brother was the doctor that performed CPR. She was in good hands from the moment she collapsed, and even though it was a difficult night for us all, you handled it beautifully and I'm proud of you!!

Dinner Sign Ups for March 21st

Please click on this link and sign up to help with our big cast dinner on March 21st. Thank you!

Your help is greatly appreciated by your hardworking, hungry children!

Monday, March 6, 2017 mistake!

Sooooo, I finally figured out why so many people are confused. I thought I had the entire cast coming for Tech Rehearsal on Friday, but I DON'T!  DUH! My bad.

So here's some clarification and NEW announcements;
Ensemble, young kids and Dance Core: pics on Thursday Mar 9 at rehearsal
Leads and Core: pics on Friday Mar 10 at Tech rehearsal (ONLY CORE needs to come!)

The following week the time listed on the calendar is when I HOPE to be finished. I realize we are dealing with non-driver students, so I will do my very best to have us done at 6, but please please please be patient and realize that we all have the same ultimate goal:  Let these kids SHINE on stage and tell a wonderful story.

We will start right after school each day.
Email me at for further clarification, and NO, you can't just miss anymore. You will be cut from your numbers if you don't ask someone from the other cast to stand in for you.
It's now or never people!

TIP: Bring all your personal costume pieces in a laundry basket--not wadded up!

Friday, March 10th will be cast pictures! Get all assigned pieces by then, please.  We will work hard to get you all in costumes ASAP. There is no BUZZ time this week, so it'll have to be during practice.

We got this!
Go team!
Our show is CRAZY GOOD!
I can't wait to show you off!
Let's work hard this month and finish strong!!
