Casting and Crew Call for Annie Kids!
It’s a hard knock life for the students this year with the construction, but we’ll be on easy street soon enough! Shayla Locklear and Kelly Manion, together with a committed group of parent volunteers, have been hard at work coordinating with our friends at Tosa East to make sure the Lincoln musical tradition carries on. We have some amazing NEW things that we are implementing, which will make the experience a little different this year, but rest assured the sun will come out, because the show must go on! Here’s the skinny…

PARENT INFORMATIONAL MEETING

  • DATE: February 5 OR 6 | 6:30 | Lincoln Library
  • Parents of 3-5 graders, please do your best to attend one of the meetings if your child plans to be part of the
    production in any capacity.
  • Second Grade parents do not need to attend this meeting.
  • During the meeting, parents will hear from volunteers in all areas, and learn more about the different areas for
    student involvement. Because the show is at Tosa East this year, the “behind the scenes” crews will have
    different opportunities.
  • We discuss the schedule and all available volunteer opportunities for parent involvement…we’ll need lots of help
    to make sure the musical is a success!
  • Forms will be available for sign-up in all areas, i.e. kids and parent involvement.

    look into the Lincoln Musical.
