Pageant of the Arts 2018: Edward Hopper
"Nighthawks"1942 oil on canvas painting Art Institute of Chicago
"If you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint."
- Edward Hopper
36th Pageant of the Arts
The Pageant dates are listed below to assist you in scheduling for the Winter/Spring rehearsals. Pageant rehearsals will be held on Thursdays from 2:20 to 3:30 p.m. Please take note of the extended rehearsal times during Pageant practices in April.
Absences create choreography challenges as well as supervision challenges which is a safety issue. By giving you this calendar early in the year, it will provide your child ample time to make arrangements to be at every rehearsal. Doctor’s or dentist appointments, sports practices or games, scouting events, or birthday parties, will not be excusable absences and are not acceptable reasons to leave a rehearsal early. Students will be allowed only two absences. Unless your child is absent from school, they will be expected to be at EVERY rehearsal, especially during the last week, Performance Week. It is a huge commitment on the part of the students and teachers. Please mark your calendars carefully,
**If there are any challenges or concerns, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to any rehearsal date.
We hope your child will join us for the 36th Pageant of the Arts! Leslie Obert
