9th graders and drama students!

We will be attending the play To Kill A Mockingbird on Thursday 4/20 this week!

Please make sure to get your permission slips in to me or Mr. Van Noy ASAP!

(Click here to access a copy of the permission slip!)

Remember your Live Theatre Etiquette:

  1. Much like a movie theatre you should not speak during the performance . . . whispering is still speaking.
  2. Cell phones should be turned OFF.
  3. Pictures are almost always prohibited and will be for this production as well.
  4. Do not put your feet up on the seats in front of you or kick the seat in front of you.
  5. Visit the restroom before the performance.
  6. DO laugh when the performance is funny.
  7. Do applaud when it is appropriate during the performance (blackouts or after major musical numbers)
  8. Do applaud when the performance is over.
  9. Stand and applaud if you really thought the show was great.
