With the beginning of the school year just getting underway, it's time for the annual Fall Play! This year we've chosen The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged. The cast has been working all summer and is very anxious to perform their masterpiece. Performance dates are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, September 19th-21st. If you want to get tickets they are available at Wild Birds Unlimited on Mack, or you can get them at this website! Just click on the seat yourself link to the right, select your date, party size, and go! Just make sure you hold on to your receipt so that when you come, we can register that you've paid for your ticket. We hope to see everyone there and to the cast: Break a leg!
We had a very nice turnout for our first meeting of the year! Knowing that we had a lot of you that couldn't make it, the basics of what was talked about was:
What We're About!
Introduction of the Board
General idea of T-shirt Orders
Extra Opportunities for Involvement
If you have any questions or concerns about whether or not you missed anything important, or you just want more in-depth information about what was discussed, feel free to email: [email protected], or stop one of the Board members the next time you see us! The year definitely got off to a great start, it was exciting to see so many new faces, and we're excited to see hopefully even more at our next meeting on Friday, September 27th!
As a quick side note, if you can find the time, register FOR FREE as a member of the website, that way we can send out emails quicker and make sure everyone's on the same page. And remember to encourage those outside who've never been to Drama Club to come check us out. There is a wide variety of opportunities for personal involvement that don't just involve singing, dancing, and acting! Keep updated and we'll see you at the next meeting!
The annual GPN Drama Club end-of-the-year Picnic is coming up sooner than you might think! This Thursday, August 29th, from 5 P.M. to 9 P.M. at the Woods Park we'll be celebrating the incoming Freshman and the graduating seniors! If you're not a member of Grosse Pointe Woods, make sure to get in touch with us so we can tell the Park. If you're a member of the Woods, make sure you bring your park passes! Since it is at the park, feel free to bring a swimsuit and swim around in the pool! If you aren't sold by all of that, we have two important words left: FREE FOOD!
UPDATE: The Picnic was a huge success, we were excited to see so many new faces their, as well as the familiar ones! Don't forget that our first official meeting for the 2013-2014 year is Friday, September 13th! Be there or be square!
