Week of April 16 - CONCERT TIME!

Image
Just a few images I found online to help us get our heads in the game for Tuesday's concert:(concert reminders at the bottom of the page)


"Alone in the night on a dark hill..." & "This is the song of the stars..."
"BUT she always ran away and left..."
"She stood so fair amid the corn..."
"Over my head, I hear music in the air..."


"Don't you want to..."





"I can give you roots. I can give you wings.  But only YOU can know when to fly..."





"You take the high road and I'll take the low road..."
"What about us...?"
"Aio!"

And just so we remember why we're putting in all of this work...





Don't forget!FOCUS during rehearsals on Monday & Tuesday so that we can let loose during performance! Encourage your family to get their tickets NOW so that they're not disappointed on Tuesday!! Link to Box OfficeRun Order(note updated plan for Hallelujah

**SHIRTS!!!** We are putting in an order for spring concert shirts!! And in order to get them by concert time, we've got to move FAST. To place an order for a specific size, bring money to DW on Monday, April 9 (the Monday after break!). Shirts are $10 each - we take cash, checks (to PAPA) and PAPA accounts.

Note: the sizing on these shirts initially run BIG but shrink quite a bit in the wash. Consider that when ordering your size!

Nope, you don't get to know the design of the shirt before ordering. Ya gotta go on blind faith. And trust that DW wouldn't ask you to wear a shirt that she wouldn't wear herself... ;-)
