Hello 7th and 8th Grade Parents,
Passion Play 2018 is upon us. One of the most rewarding events of our children's years here at St. Ignatius is quickly approaching. This school year's Passion Play will be held on March 23, 2018. We hope to have 100% participation of all the students. Having all the 7th and 8th grade students together, reenacting the Passion of Christ, is such a beautiful way to culminate their years of Catholic schooling, and a beautiful way for them to bond with each other and grow closer to our Lord.
There are several types of roles for which the students can try out. There are roles that have many speaking parts, roles that have very few speaking parts, roles that have almost no speaking parts, and roles that have singing. Larger roles tend to go to the 8th graders first, but we will do our best to match each student with the role he/she desires. Auditions will be held on the afternoon of Wednesday December 13 from 3:15 until 6, at the latest. Your child may call you to be picked up as soon as he/she is finished that day. More details on auditions will follow. Practices will begin the week we return from Christmas break.
We are having a parent meeting this coming Tuesday 11/7/2018 at 7:00 in the cafeteria. The meeting will last 30 -45 minutes at most. At the meeting, we will discuss practice dates/times and parent participation in things like coordinating costumes, helping with set design, providing snacks for practices, etc. We will disseminate quite a bit of information at the meeting that we ask that each student have a parent present.
We are excited to work with your children this year. We have seen first-hand the impact that the Passion Play has had on all those involved in years past, that we are looking forward to making this a rewarding and memorable experience for all of our children.
We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday November 7.
