LITTLE THEATRE THIS FRIDAY
Selections from Stage and Screen!
This 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.
EAST COAST TRIP PARENT MEETING
This Friday at 6:00 p.m. is a Mandatory Parent Meeting for those with students going on the East Coast Trip next month. We will be 31 days from our departure date of March 19! Last week students were handed a white envelope with a Parent Agreement and a Student Agreement for going on the East Coast Trip. If you have not already turned in these papers to the office, they will be due at the meeting on Friday. Some of the things we will discuss are: the itinerary, how to earn ½ credit for History, necessary paperwork, packing for the trip, and we’ll have a Q & A time at the end. We will finish in time for you to attend Little Theatre! If you are not able to attend, you MUST contact Miss Crow at: [email protected] before Friday evening.
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!
NO SCHOOL PRESIDENTS DAY
Remember that Monday, February 19th, is Presidents Day and there is no school that day! Enjoy your long weekend!
COLLEGE FAIR COMING SOON
On Tuesday evening, February 27th, ACA will be hosting our 2nd Annual Christian College Fair from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. It will be held at Highland Park Christian Church at 5708 E. 31st St, Tulsa. At the moment we have 14 Christian colleges and universities registered to come visit with students and parents! We are encouraging all of our high school students to attend! We are also asking students to register for a barcode before coming. They don’t have to register to attend, but having a barcode will save them time at each school’s table. The representative from each school will scan the student’s barcode and the student won’t have to fill out their personal info at each and every table. Go to myblueprintstory.com to register for your barcode.
There will also be a financial aid presentation from 7:30 - 8:00 p.m. This is a very helpful resource for families no matter where your student decides to attend college. There will be time to ask the financial aid representative questions after the presentation. Please plan on attending this year’s Christian College Fair! You will learn so much about each college and get your financial aid questions answered - in only two hours!
Please see the flyer attached below and share this information with your friends who have high school students! The event is open to the public and is totally free to attend! If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Collingsworth at 918-724-4396 (c) or 918-832-4600 (o).
