2017 BAS Variety Show … A Night at the Movies!

variety-showShow Date – Friday March 31, 2017
Thanks to so many of you who have offered to be a Class Director for the Variety Show!  If you’re planning on signing up and haven’t yet sent in your form….please send it in this week!  Extra copies are in the BAS office if needed.  There are still several classes in need of volunteers who can attend most/all rehearsals so please consider volunteering for this great fundraiser.  Rehearsals are held during the lunch hour for all full day students and before class begins for 1/2 day students and are a lot a fun!  Don’t be shy…no stage experience is necessary and choreography support will be provided if needed.
Please reach out to Elayna Torsone + Sarah Morgan with any questions
