So you wanna see a play? There are approximately 20 seats available for the Bowmer Project that will be filled by application of interested students active in theater but NOT enrolled in Advanced Theater (they are automatically in).
What your application needs to include:
Brief biographical info - including your history as a play-goer and your family's history as play-goers.
An explanation of the Bowmer Project program in your own words (to demonstrate you 'get it')... if you've never heard of it, look here, then ask an upperclassman.
A realistic assessment of how you will use your Pass+1 - frequency, transportation, willingness to bring along others, etc...
Your written responses, either by hand or emailed to me, are due end of day MONDAY, Feb 25.
Please come to an Organizational Meeting / Meet n Greet on Wednesday After School

Also be aware the Regionals stuff starts in fast and furious this week, with opt in opt out deadlines getting here VERY FAST, and there is an exhibition performance for regionals pieces coming up in about 11 days (that will also be the 'Save my grade' op for the folks who crash on Short Scenes).
