The PAPA PTSO Spaghetti Dinner is coming up on Friday, November 1, 2013. This year marks our 5th consecutive year of the dinner. This is one of two primary fundraisers we hold during the year. The other is PAPApalooza held in February. All funds raised go directly back to the PAPA Community to support students & staff.
The Spaghetti Dinner is the first performance opportunity of the school year for our PAPA students. Students prepare acts, audition and perform for 250 guests. Guests not only have the opportunity to enjoy a PAPA performance, they also have dinner with fellow PAPA families. The last 4 years we have Sold Out! Make sure you get your tickets early!
Admission to the dinner includes a meal of salad, bread, spaghetti, and a beverage, the opportunity to win door prizes as well as seeing our PAPA students perform.
Location: St. John’s United Methodist Church Family Life Center at 2626 Arizona St NE. Parking and entrance to the venue are on the east side of the building.
Doors open at 6pm for seating
This dinner is considered an official PAPA Performance. Students that are performing will arrive at the venue at 4pm for a “run through” and will stay in the “Green Room” during the dinner when they are not performing and will be released at the conclusion of the dinner. Performers will be provided food and beverages separately in the green room.
There is currently a sign up sheet in the front office for those students wishing to audition a performance for the dinner.
As always, all audition acts should be “performance ready” which means that they have been rehearsed and are polished enough to be able to go on stage with the act tomorrow if necessary!
Auditions for School Groups will be Tuesday, October 8th at 3pm in the East Dance Studio.
Auditions for individual and small group acts will be Wednesday, October 9th at 3pm in the East EanceStudio.
A group of teachers and parents will decide which acts will be selected this year.
Tickets will be on sale through the month of October until we sell out (250 guest capacity).
