Our very own Sandwich High School Choral Music Department and Knight’s Theatre Company has two great events coming up in the beginning of March to kick off Spring!
On March 3rd, Sandwich Soul will have their very own concert at SHS Theatre at 7:00pm. Tickets are $10.00 for adults and only $8.00 for students.
Here’s a flyer you can download: sandwich-soul-in-concert-flyer
And on March 11th, Knight’s Theatre Company will be hosting a Community Sock Hop Event, celebrating the 50’s in honor of our spring musical – Grease!
The event is held at the high school from 5-9pm, and is for all ages. Please print and save and POST the flyer below and invite all your family and friends!!
The Sandwich High School Knights Theater Company is performing “Grease” as their Spring musical and just prior to these performances, they will be holding a very special fund raiser: The Sandwich Sock Hop on Saturday, March 11 at Sandwich High School from 5-9 pm.
Monies raised will help subsidize near-term and longer-term improvements and enhancements for the talented young performers and tech crew who are members of The Knights Theater Company under the extraordinarily gifted directors, Kevin and Melinda Lasit. Some of these improvements and enhancements include renting a Grease Lightning stage car for use in the Spring musical and eventually purchasing high quality face mics for use in future productions.
While the event is a fund raiser, we also want to celebrate the power of the performing arts in bringing people together joyfully. So, the Sandwich Sock Hop is a community event. We hope to have families from pre-school through grade 12 in attendance along with residents, seniors, etc……basically our Town is invited:)
*Classic Car Display
*”teaser” performances by Grease Cast Members
*Best Dressed Contests (everyone is encouraged to dress in 50’s clothes)
*Hula Hooping Contest
*Dance lessons to learn the “iconic” Hand Jive Dance with a “mass performance” by all attendees
*Pie Throwing (volunteers needed to have pies thrown at them:) Pies are “whip cream”)
*Beauty Parlor/Barber Shop (face painting & temporary tattoos)
*Frosty Palace Diner
Admission is $5/person. Family cap of $25. Age 4 and under are free. $3 admission for ages 65+. Tickets to carnival games, cake walk and pie throwing sold separately. $1/ticket or 15 tickets for $10. Frosty Palace Diner is cash only.
This is a wonderful opportunity to bring our entire Town together for an evening of togetherness, connectedness, and community!
