*Is Tech Week Mandatory and Important – Yes! It is when we put everything together with the costumes, lights, sound, set, etc. In the performance world, this is the MOST important week of all!


*If I’m not in a show, can I go? – Yes! We create all of our shows for the community and encourage our families to attend as many performances as possible! This is a great way to expose your families to performance and to be a supportive community member!
