Students will need to bring their own money for Lunch and Dinner. It is customary to dress nicely for theatre productions, and students are advised to dress weather-appropriately.

“The adults who are attending with the students are Ms. Zakarauskas, Mr. Lorusso, Ms. Jesse, Mr. Nebz, and myself. I recommend to bring 20-35 dollars for food. There are 42 seats left. I hope my art students will recognize some of the art that we’ve done. I looked at the options, the best prices, and the timing for the musical. I also rallied with some of the students and saw that [SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical was] supposed to be a good show,” states art teacher and organizer of the trip, Mrs. Sarrah Camburn.
