Winter Musical, Xanadu, Performances Posponed

With the recent news from the district, there are many uncertainties about the schedule of upcoming festivals and performances.  The musical, Xanadu, has been postponed and will hopefully be performed in May, instead of a spring play.  Read the letter from the BPA Directors

Tickets Available: at Showtix4u.com

This Tony Award-nominated, hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends, Jeff Lynne and John Farrar. Based on the Universal Pictures cult classic movie of the same title, which starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, Xanadu is hilarity on wheels for adults, children and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired.

Adult volunteers are required for each performances of Xanadu. If you haven't already, please volunteer. Check with your theatre students for more information. They have the sign up sheets.
