AUGGIE AWARDS THIS FRIDAY EVENING

Have you picked up your ticket from the school office? ALL CAST & CREW MEMBERS (Peter Pan, Oklahoma), and CAST PARENTS and Booster Club members are FREE! Everyone else is $7 (less than the price of a movie ticket and far more entertaining!).  Enjoy an evening of awards, solos from selected Vocal Express members, music from alumni, special musical excerpts from the musical “Wicked” by Show Choir, and the announcement of next year’s shows! Included with your ticket is a reception for adults in the dining hall (Mrs. Krautter has some wonderful finger foods planned) and for cast/crew and alumni, you will be treated to an hour of food, games, and dancing to the music by our DJ. We encourage everyone to attend the Auggie Awards on Friday evening at St. James Methodist Church!  Dress for Cast, Crew, and Alumni is Winter Court Formal (but girls, we are going green – recycle those Winter Court dresses). Parents, please dress in the spirit of the evening. You do not need to wear formal wear, but please, NO JEANS! LAST DAY TO PURCHASE OR PICK UP TICKETS IS TOMORROW (in order to have a count for food).  Questions? Call Becki in the school office.
