Students will be selected based on their learning habits and vocal leadership.  Invitations will be sent home to selected students as soon as we have all the information that we need and the District Viva City permission slip.

The event is in early stages of planning, so there are many details yet to be worked out.  This information is for families to be as informed as possible.

MPS will be on all three stages at the Guthrie that night!  
The format is more of an art crawl than a traditional performance.  
There will be short breaks so that audience members can come and go between the three stages.  
Our goal is to include as many students and schools in this event!  

Here are more details about the performance night!

Each group will have 10 minutes of performance time.  
Busses and dinner will be provided for students/teachers.
Permission slips will be sent to you as soon as possible.  
We are waiting to get the media release from the Guthrie so that it is all in one permission slip. 
Depending on the number of schools participating, we may need to look at adding in some non-traditional performance spaces for smaller groups/combos. 

Rough schedule (subject to change):
2:30 – 3:00: Arrive at the Guthrie - students and chaperones will be bussed from school site
3:00 – 5:00: Tech Rehearsal and Dinner in Shifts
5:30 – 9:00: Performances - Whittier has requested an earlier performance time
