Purchasing information will be sent out later this week. The membership fee (two payments totalling $15) is required. If you need financial help please reach out to Mary (President@Greenwood-PTA.org).
  • Practices are held on Thursdays from 6:30-8:30pm in the Greenwood APR. Students should plan to attend all rehearsals so that they can learn the routine.

    Be sure to take pictures of your kids practicing! On the day of the show, before the show begins and during intermission a slideshow is shown with all the practice pictures from each group. Each group should submit up to 5 pictures of their groups preparing for the show. Pictures can be submitted to Mary at President@greenwood-pta.org with the subject “Variety Show Slideshow” please be sure to note your group name.

    Greenroom Parent Policy: 

    A greenroom parent will need to be designated for each group. This individual is responsible for being a chaperone to their group during the show. You can share this task with another parent in your group. A sign up sheet will be available March 24th for you to designate who your greenroom parent will be. 

    Note that you will absolutely be able to watch your child perform as a chaperone. 

    Preview Night:

    This year there will be a combined preview and picture night (for those familiar with years past we are eliminating the double preview). The key to this transition is submitting your music in the correct format ahead of the preview night. 

    Preview/picture night will be March 24th. It will take place in the Greenwood APR. Closer to the date you'll receive a message with a report time for your group, please arrive on time in full costume ready for pictures so that the evening runs smoothly. Students will arrive at their report time, take pictures, and then give a quick run through of their performance with their music.

    Tickets:

    Tickets will go on sale March 1st. They will be available for purchase through Showtix for $8. You must purchase tickets ahead of time.
