Weekly Announcements - Friday, April 15, 2016

At the Upper Campus, it is still all Lion King, all the time!

Everyone please save the date and join us for a great show!  Our 2016 WFM theatrical production, The Lion King, will be presented on Sunday, April 17, at 3:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. at the MS 4 Theater, 107 Bright Street, Jersey City. Our students and staff have outdone themselves with a truly amazing production full of music, dance, costumes and more!  Don’t miss this spectacular show!   Please click here to reserve your tickets.

      ********** FYI:  THE 3:00 P.M. show is virtually sold out!! **********

Parents of Elementary and Middle School Students:  The mandatory technical and dress rehearsals for The Lion King will be on Saturday, April 16, at the MS4 Theater, 107 Bright Street. Every student is required to be in attendance.  Please see the email from 4-13 for the April 16-17 detailed weekend schedule.  Please be on time for rehearsals!

Special Note for Elementary and Middle School Students ONLY:  Lates and Absences will not be counted on Monday, April 18.

Special thanks to WFM parent Lisa Willingham for all of the amazing inspirational videos sent to our students from the Broadway cast of The Lion King!  

PLEASE REMEMBER:  PARENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED BACKSTAGE OR IN THE THEATER UNLESS THEY ARE SPECIFICALLY ASSIGNED TO BE THERE.  WE WILL BE QUITE FIRM ABOUT THIS.  More people backstage creates unnecessary chaos when the energy level is already quite high for everyone.  We ask for your cooperation and your understanding.
