Dear FHSDC Parents!

Dear FHSDC Parents,


Welcome to the MAMMA MIA Family! We are so excited to have your student involved in our upcoming production of MAMMA MIA at FHS. We want you to be a part of the action this year and we would love your involvement with the FHSDC. 
 
GREEK NIGHT FUNDRAISER
Please join us on the evening of Saturday, December 8th for our Greek Night Fundraiser as a celebration of the FHSDC community. Your evening begins at the Aegean Restaurant in Framingham at 5:00pm for a buffet meal with a cash bar in their private function room where you will receive a poster from the show. You will then attend the 7:00pm performance of MAMMA MIA in a seat in one of the first four rows. Following the performance, you will be welcomed on to the stage to take photos with your favorite cast members. We hope this will be a great community gathering for the FHSDC parents.
 
These tickets are on a first-come first-serve basis. Once our reserved seats are sold out, we will not be able to sell anymore.
 
Ticket Cost: $50.00 (all proceeds benefit the FHSDC). Tickets can ONLY be purchased through the order form attached and must be turned in to Madi Spear by October 1. Please make checks payable to Framingham Public Schools.
 
TICKETS
This show has five performances open to the public and tickets for all performances are on sale now at www.showtix4u.com. Since we have put these tickets on sale two weeks ago we have sold over 300 seats! This is a record this early. We urge you to purchase your tickets today for the show so that the families of cast members have the best seats. As most of you know, last year, we sold out the entire run of MARY POPPINS and we hope the same will happen for MAMMA MIA, so please be sure to purchase early.
 
Performances:
 
Thursday, December 6th- 7pm (Opening Night)
Friday, December 7th- 7pm 
Saturday, December 8th- 7pm (GREEK NIGHT!)
Thursday, December 13th- 7pm
Friday, December 14th (Closing Performance) 
 
AD SALES
Now is ad sales season for our program book for the year. If you work at a business/office or know any local business owners that might be interested, we appreciate you reaching out to get the community to support FHS Drama Company. The money we raise from our ad book directly pays for festival each year. If your student is interested in being a Drama Company member this year, they must sell an ad as one of their three requirements. The ad book deadline is just around the corner, September 28th. 
 
COSTUME FEE
As we usually do for the musical, we will be renting costumes from a professional designer who is actually building the show for us first! In order to offset the cost of this, we ask all cast members to pay a $25 costume fee for the production. All costume fees should be made payable to Framingham Public Schools and turned in to Emily Dupcak by Saturday, September 29th. If you have a financial hardship, please see Chris or Donna. 
 
APPAREL
Apparel will be sold for the show- if you would like to purchase something, all you have to do is send in the order form with payment with your student by the deadline on the form. This info will be coming out at the first rehearsal this Saturday.
 
PETER AND THE STARCATCHER
Peter and the Starcatcher opens soon! Performances are October 12th and 13th @ 7pm. We hope to see you in the audience for this fun and magical show. www.showtix4u.com.
 
EVENING WITH THE ARTS
Was a huge hit last year in our inaugural year! Thanks to Sandy Dupcak and the FHSDC parent committee who put it together. This year, we are doing it again on October 21st from 5-7pm. If you are interested in helping to organize this event, please contact Sandy directly at: dupcak@rcn.com. Tickets will go on sale tomorrow at www.showtix4u.com. The flyer for this year's event is attached.
 
 
Mamma Mia- here we go again! Thank you so much for your constant support of FHSDC.
 
Glad to have you along for the journey,
