Every year the Utah Theatre Association presents a conference for theatre students in our state. This year the conference will be held Friday, January 19 at Davis Conference Enter in Layton and Center Point Legacy Theatre in Centerville. This is an all-day event and I will be taking a group of my seasoned theatre students. We will leave the school at 7:30 am and return that evening around 11:00 p.m. The students participate in workshops, lectures, and attend a live theatrical performance (Tarzan @ Northridge High or Macbeth @ Syracuse High). The cost of this event is $40.00, plus $5.00 for the bus, so a total of $45.00. The students will also need to bring money for dinner the day of the event. The school will provide box lunches from our cafeteria for the regular price of school lunch. The deadline for signup and payment is November 27. If your student would be interested in attending please fill out the permission slip and make payment in the office of $45.00. If you have questions please contact me.  Thank you!
