Newsletter for May 2018


Wow, recital is only about six weeks away! June 15th 6:00 p.m and 16th 12 noon, and 6 p.m. plus a Soloist Showcase 2:00-3:00 featuring all the soloists, at Patuxent High School, Lusby, MD

June 14th is dress rehearsal, starting at 5:00, and a ‘line up’ of the times will be emailed out to you soon so you do not have to stay the entire time. We do not do any competitive show troupe routines at dress rehearsals since they’ve had stage time with their routines at competitions, so the dress rehearsal tends to go quickly, but, just remember, that there will be more time in between routines for changing at the ‘real’ show.
