Grover Heights MPR

Talent Show Tryouts January 27, 28 or 29 (pick one date) - after school in the MPR - Show us your (2 minute maximum) act! Having your music chosen and the name of your act is very helpful. If your child is shy about getting on stage alone, we hope to offer Zulu Dance Classes and possibly another song / group act, so watch your emails for those opportunities. If your child would like to be an MC, no need to try out. Just stop by one of the dates, let us know and grab a permission slip. Practices will be held at school for those that want / need them. The only truly mandatory dates are March 12, 4pm Dress Rehearsal at Clark Center and March 13, 6:30 pm Show at Clark Center.
