All students will leave their luggage in the theater on Thursday morning when you get to school. Make sure that all chorus students pack sneakers for Friday's workshop as we will be choreographing certain sections. Don't wear flip flops or slip on shoes in the park on Friday.

You will need to leave your classroom at 11:10 a.m. to head for the lunchroom to eat your lunch(bag or purchased). Get in the front of the line. You must be done by 11:30 a.m. and have gone to the restroom. Report to the theater to get your luggage at 11:35 a.m. and then head out to the busses. Put a luggage tag on your luggage from New Horizons and write your name on it. We will board the busses here at Mabry and completely fill one bus before anyone goes on the second bus. The busses will seat 56 and 57 people. Only bring on the bus essential items for the ride down. Everything else goes below the bus. The busses will be very crowded and filled to capacity. Do not be late getting out to the busses as we have to then pick up Simpson's students.

Drama Class 8-2 Gen. Music

All drama students have been given a major drama project assignment. They have until May 8th to present. Please look over your project sheet and be able to tell Mrs. Smith which project you have chosen. Remember, the shadowboxes cannot be just from movies. It has to be a scene from a broadway show or play.

The reports must be typed 14 font and double spaced. If your printer is not working than you must turn in a hand written neat copy the day it is due. You have 3 weeks to get this done so do not procrastinate.
