Calling all Middle School Performers and Technicians!

It is that time of year again. Auditions for the MS Play are coming up soon. We will be holding 2 pre audition information sessions regarding the MS Play next week. They will be held Monday November 21 and Wednesday November 23. They will be held in Ms Purdues Drama Room (1149) from 3 – 4 both days. These sessions are NOT the auditions but a chance to hear about what is involved in being part of the MS play, how to audition and a chance for you to ask any questions you might have. You do NOT have to attend both sessions.

Looking forward to seeing anyone who is interested on Monday and Wednesday.

Ms. Purdue
