NOTE TO PARENTS REGARDING THE PARENT MEETING: Your student has auditioned for Awkward Pause – The Stafford High School Improv Team. If they are invited to join the team, we ask that you attend the Virtual Parent Meeting on Thursday, September 14 at 7pm. The purpose of this meeting is to organize support for Improv/Theater activities for the year. Without the support of parents, we would be unable to provide great opportunities for students in improv and theater at Stafford High School.
PROGRAM ADVERTISEMENT SALES (Mandatory): An important fundraising component for the Stafford High School Theater Department is the sale of advertisement space in the program for our fall play (THE VELVETEEN RABBIT) and our spring musical (PIPPIN) Therefore, students cast on the Awkward Pause Improv Team will be asked to sell TWO (2) Program Advertisements for EACH show.
PUBLICITY WEEKEND (Mandatory): Students cast on the Awkward Pause Improv Team are required to participate in hanging posters, banners and other promotional activities. More details to come!
