PSST Update: 11/19/2014

Enjoying your time off from Urinetown? Wasn't it fabulous! Thank you so much to the parents who came out to help in our lobby and backstage the past two weekends. You were a pleasure to work with! Special thanks to our coordinators – we couldn’t do it without you! Urinetown was a complete success with cast, crew, directors, and parents all working together to achieve a phenomenal show! It takes a village!

And speaking of village, Dickens Craft Fair will be held on Saturday, December 13th from 10am-3pm. We are in need of volunteers for Friday afternoon set up, Saturday morning help, shifts throughout the day, and clean up. Please stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.

In case you are feeling a little blue or a little lost with a sudden lack of Drama in your life, our Portland Pie fundraiser continues through the end of the month. Why not get a group together to support the drama program! And don’t forget your coupon!

Did you get your copy of Urinetown: The Musical? Joe Haungs is still taking orders until the end of the week. The DVDs make great holiday gifts for your favorite actor or techie! The order form is attached.

Town Meeting Help:
In the never ending town meeting, we are looking for help again to oversee the table and to bake. We are looking for someone for the table Thursday, November 20th from 6:30-8:15pm and Monday, November 24th from 7:15-8:15. We will also need 2 bakers for each night. Please email Laurie at laudoherty@verizon.net if you are able to help.

From Mrs Cunha:
Auditions are all this week and all students who plan to participate MUST complete their family ID registration BEFORE AUDITIONS OR TECH INTERVIEWS. All students need to register. For those already on Family ID (sports, drama, band) - all you need to do is add Winter Drama and choose Tech or Cast. Family ID doesn't collect the User Fee money. Payment for that is due by December 12th and will only happen once the cast and tech lists are posted.

Festival of Trees:
PSST sponsors a tree in the Festival of Trees on Saturday and Sunday, December 6 & 7th with set up on Friday, December 5th. Whitney Perkins has graciously agreed to share her decorating talents again this year. She is looking for someone to take it over next year, since her daughter will be graduating at the end of this year. If you are interested, please email us and we’ll pass your information along to Whitney. This only time involved is planning the tree and set up on the Friday night before the Festival – a great way to get your feet wet and learn the job from the person doing it now.

Choral Program:
Please support the Choral Program by using SCRIP for ordering gift cards for all of your holiday, birthday, etc. needs using the VOICE Enrollment Code: E75175D7355L7 at Scrip.com. Orders are due by December 13th for holiday delivery. See the attached for more info. Chorus is also hosting a Karaoke night this Friday, 11/21 from 7-9pm in the RMHS cafeteria.
