“SEUSSICAL, THE MUSICAL”

ACA’s Jr. Production Company will open its production, Seussical Jr. , on Thursday, April 14th.  The much-loved musical celebrates the power of imagination, the importance of believing in oneself, and diversity, reminding everyone that “A person’s a person, no matter how small!” The production features many well-known Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, and of course, the infamous Cat in the Hat, who acts as host and MC.

Seussical will run for 5 performances, closing on Sunday, April, 17. The musical debuted on Broadway in 2000, before touring the U.S. and the U.K. It remains a staple of regional and school theater.

Tickets are $7 for Students/Children and $10 for Adults.  Performance dates/times are:

Thursday, April 14th, Friday, April 15th, and Saturday, April 16th at 7:00 pm; Saturday, April 16th at 2:00 pm; and Sunday, April 17th at 3:00 pm.

Tickets are by reservation only. Invite all your family and friends. Director, Mrs. Post guarantees you will walk out the door singing one of the Seussical songs from the show!



SPRING PICTURE DAY

The yearbook staff is sponsoring Spring Picture Day THIS Friday, April 8th.  Students may wear their choice of clothing for their spring picture, but must be in uniform except when getting their picture taken.  There will be a choice of backgrounds using “green screen” technology.  However, due to the green screen - students should NOT wear green clothing!  Proofs will be delivered to the school and parents can order portraits from the photographer’s web site if they like the proofs.

ROTARY CLUB OF TULSA HONORS ACA STUDENT

Each year, the Rotary Club of Tulsa sponsors Camp Enterprise, a three and a half day event where students develop their leadership and business skills and learn about free enterprise. They invite up to 100 students from Tulsa area schools and have multiple guest speakers from the Tulsa area business world speaking into their lives throughout the event. This year, five of our Juniors were sponsored to attend, free of charge. Camp Enterprise weekend is one long, intense business challenge where you first are separated from your school peers. You then have to meet with your new team to choose who you believe will successfully lead you and your team to build the best business strategy to help you become the most successful team by the end of the event. Many of our ACA students have risen to the position of president of their respective business team and for the second year in a row an ACA student has led their team to victory. Last year, at Camp Enterprise 2015, Hannah Brennecke led her team to a 1st Place victory and this year, at Camp Enterprise 2016, Michael Stephens led his team to a 1st Place victory!

We are so very proud of the accomplishments of all who attended Camp Enterprise this year. Michael Stephens will be honored at the April 28th downtown Rotary Club of Tulsa luncheon, where he has been asked to deliver a speech. Please join us in congratulating Michael for this wonderful accomplishment. We truly have amazing students here at Augustine Christian Academy!
