Dear Parents and Students:

A reminder that CPDW’s Mid-Winter Break is March 5th-11th, and coincides with Penn State’s Spring Break. Our Spring Break is scheduled for April 10th -16th. Any snow day make up classes will be scheduled during one of those two weeks.

It is time to begin to work on our annual CPDW All-School Performance. This year's performance is Sunday, April 30th at 7:00 pm at the State Theatre, right around the corner from CPDW on College Avenue. CPDW will present "Mystical Creatures." We hope to make this a challenging and enjoyable project for everyone. While the timing might not be ideal (school night, upcoming finals, etc.), scheduling requires taking into account many other factors as well (theatre availability being a prime one). Each class will participate and every CPDW student is strongly encouraged to make the most of this once-in-a-semester performance opportunity.

We ask the students to be responsible for two things: (1) attendance at the State Theatre for a spacing rehearsal on Saturday, April 29th and a dress rehearsal on Sunday, prior to the performance, and (2) construction or purchase of a simple costume.

Tickets may be purchased at the State Theatre box office. All tickets are general seating in the orchestra level. Group and individual pictures will be taken on Saturday, April 29th, at the time of the spacing rehearsal. Those interested will also be able to purchase a DVD of the performance.

Please complete and return the attached form as soon as possible, but no later than March 18th. If you have any questions, please feel free to call 237-2666 or email I will reply as soon as possible.



Jill A. Brighton, Director
