We encourage you to carpool as free parking is limited.  We apologize in advance for any inconvenience our parking situation may cause, and we thank you for your understanding.


I can use 3 – 4 parent chaperones to help maintain order and decorum and assist on moving our equipment to and from the warm up room, auditorium, and clinic. You can sign up to chaperone using Cut Time.  The spots available will appear on your profile page. Chaperones need to have their background checks on file in the Nitschmann student services office. (Chaperones do not need to purchase a ticket for the festival)
