Patriot Players Holiday Party!

What would the holiday season be without a Patriot Players company party? On December 19th, right after Grease rehearsal, our festivities will begin!

Please bring an ugly Christmas (or Hanukkah) sweater to change in to after rehearsal; we will have an ugly sweater competition, and prizes will be given out :) If you have any other holiday gear to enhance your outfit and show your spirit, please bring/wear it as well!

We will be providing food and holiday treats--if you have any food allergies, please let us know.

Be ready for festive games and challenges! We are keeping the specifics a secret for now, but be prepared for fun activities :)
