Refreshments for Tom Sawyer:
Each crew and cast member is expected to bring something in for Refreshments for Tom Sawyer. This attached letter from our Refreshment Coordinators explains everything. We are doing something a little different for this show. Students with last names beginning with A-M, please bring a individually wrapped snack. If your last name is N-Z, please bring a case of 24 water bottles/16.9oz. Please click on this attachment to read the details. If you could bring your contribution on Friday night, that would be great. Thank you for your contributions of refreshments! This is a fantastic money-maker for the Drama Club and we couldn't do it without you.

Lobby & Back Stage Volunteers Needed:
It is time to staff up for Tom Sawyer. Please see attached form, we need everyone's assistance. No experience required, we promise you will have fun and work with some pretty great parents and students! Again, we rely on parents so much, and we deeply appreciate parents willingness to help us out during the shows.

Tickets for Tom Sawyer:
Box office hours will begin again on April 28th, show week, from 6:30 - 7:30 and 90 min. prior to each performance. Also, you can buy your tickets on ticketstage.com. There is still time to send the order form to our PO Box 432, Reading, MA. Or, if it is easier, have your son or daughter drop your ticket order in the mailbox outside Mrs. Cunha's office.

Need help with sewing and/or cutting dresses, etc.:

I received word this evening from Erline Trites, our costume coordinator, that we are in need "costume builders." We need to make 4 dresses and a jacket. So I am sending out another plea to our fantastically talented and ever-willing parent community -- if any of you can sew, or can cut out patterns, please contact Erline Trites. Or just come to Saturday's set build. Erline is concerned about getting it all done by show time, especially because we lost this some time with the cancellation of tonight's Set Build. Her email is dogghamlet@verizon.net. You can cut and/or sew at home, if you don't want to work during Set Build hours.

Happy Passover, Happy Prom, Happy Easter and have a great vacation everyone! Hope to see you at Set Builds.

Please let us know on the form if you have any special handicapped seating requirements. You can also purchase your tickets on www.ticketstage.com.

Lobby Volunteering for Tom Sawyer:

At this point you all know the drill - and we will need lots of help in the lobby on May 2, 3, and 4. ginafiore@comcast.net Please consider helping, even if you've never done it before. It is actually really fun, and no experience is required! We would love to have you.
