Drama Club Families,
We have several important announcements to share as we get closer to the play opening this week. Please read below and respond accordingly:
Some quick items about the show weekend:
Friday night—Monte Cellos:
Last year, the cast decided to create a new tradition of going to Monte Cellos on Babcock Boulevard after the Friday show. Prior to last year, the tradition was TGI Fridays, but they closed literally the week before Pride & Prejudice opened! This is definitely NOT a mandatory activity, but a number of cast and crew members will be going. Parents can drop off, or stay and get their own table...it's entirely your choice. If you are dropping your child off, please make sure they have cash and understand the practice of tipping. They will probably be finished around 11:30-12:00, based on previous years' experience.
Saturday afternoon--break between shows.
There will be a break of a couple hours between the Saturday matinee and the Saturday evening show. Some of the kids pack a lunch and stay at the school. Some leave, and either go home or get food locally. This is entirely up to your family! But it's a very long day so please make sure your child has something to eat and drink. We want everyone to feel good and have energy for the evening show!
Saturday night--cast party.
Following the Saturday performance, the cast party will be held at North Hills Christian Church, 778 Thompson Run Road, Pgh 15237. All members of the cast and crews are invited to attend. Please enter through the bottom doors. Contact Katie Knox (412) 302-6508 in case anyone has a question. Since the kids won't be arriving until 10:30 pm, we think a reasonable end time is 12:30 am. If picking your child up at 12:30, please feel free to pitch in and help clean up! The party is very low-key and we are not decorating, but we do want to leave the church the way we found it. Thanks to the Knox family for securing this space for us!
Thank you all for your help in making our drama program shine for our students and our community!
The Drama Parent Coordinators & Staff
We are still in need of scratch-off lottery ticket donations for our lottery tree raffle.The lottery tree will be included with our basket auction, which is one of our biggest fundraisers. Please have your students give their donated tickets to either Sean Nolan or Josh Kubala during practice, or you can bring them to the meeting on Tuesday.
Please respond to this email if you would like to contribute anything to the basket auction. So far we have a family fun basket with donations from Fun Slides, Laser Storm, Code Breakers, and the Children's Museum, as well as an Avon Basket, a Mary Kay donation, and a couple of baskets that will be donated by parents.
Thanks so much for all of your help!

Sorry for all of the emails today, but there are a lot of pieces that need to come together with just a few days until the play! We are asking that each cast and crew member donate 3 dozen cookies for the cookie sale. Please bring your donations to the cookie table in the lobby on Thursday, Nov. 15, any time after 6 p.m.
