SAVE THE DATE - APRIL 27

Important Save The Date Announcement for Friday, April 27th

ACA has been encouraging young minds to Think, Reason, and Persuade from a distinctly Christian perspective for over 20 years! We are excited to continue building on a rich history of unique and even quirky traditions that make us ACA. We are bringing together ACA families, past, present, and even future, for an evening of music and fellowship. The focus of the evening will be the launching of the NEXT 20 years; or, in keeping with our musical theme, we are “Arranging A New Score!”  So important is this event, that the Board of Governors and Administration have decided to make this the primary focus of this years fundraising efforts. With this in mind, we have decided to forego this years’ Annual Trivia Night. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but encourage you to set aside April 27 for an incredible evening with your ACA family.  Watch for more information coming soon!



SINGING VALENTINES

“Live harmony inspires the soul.”  ACA’s Show Choir, Luminis, will be doing Singing Valentines this year on February 14th!  You can have a love song delivered to your special someone on Valentine’s Day in person or by phone!  Please see the order form attached below.  Time slots fill up fast, so don’t delay!  Complete your order form and turn it in at the school office by Monday, February 12.



VALENTINE STORE

Our Performing Arts Dept. annual Valentine Store will be open this year on February 8, 9, 12, 13, & 14 before school, after school, and at lunchtime. Items purchased may be taken home the day of purchase or we can hold items for students & teachers and will deliver them on the afternoon of February 14th. We have candy, stuffed animals, silk flowers, etc. so stop by and see if there is something you’d like for your student!  We still need volunteers to help man the store, so if you need to fulfill your Performing Arts volunteer hours, this is a great way to do that!  To volunteer or ask questions - contact Mrs. Christy Rowland at 918-557-0344.



LITTLE THEATRE

Selections from Stage and Screen!

Friday, February 16th at 7:00 p.m. is ACA’s Little Theatre for the spring semester.  Join us for an exciting evening of exhibitions from our Performing Arts Classes.  The first act of the night will feature dramatic monologues and riotous stage combat from our Intro to Theatre students; Tony-award winning music from Musical Theatre Class, Luminous Show Choir, and our ACA 6th graders; swashbuckling sword fights, award-winning monologues, and compelling duets from Performing Shakespeare actors; and a stirring scene from our Pre-Professional Acting students.

And if that weren’t enough entertainment, the highlight of the evening will be the World Premiere of the ACA Short Film, “The Man in the Bowler Hat”! This project was a collaboration between Film Making and Performing Shakespeare classes.  Director, Taylor Drake and the students worked extremely hard on this film and are very excited to present the impressive final cut at Little Theatre.

Seating is limited with tickets sold only at the door for $3 per person.   Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and seating is not reserved.  Concessions will be available both before the show and during intermission.  Copies of “The Man in the Bowler Hat” with additional documentary film footage will be available to purchase that evening as well.
