    October 2014 Newsletter: LoftPAC Corner

    A few words from your LoftPAC president, Abby Winston:

    What a great start to a new school year!  In the five weeks since school started, we have been very busy here at the Loft Stage.  We started the year off with a bang with auditions for our fall musical Into the Woods.  Then, we walked in the homecoming parade, participated in the Out of the Darkness walk, and started set and costume construction!  WOW.  October is also a big month for the Loft Stage–ValleyScare on October 3rd, Butter Braid sales, the New York trip, and more rehearsals for Into the Woods!  Thank you to all those who have been coming to set and costume construction in the past few weeks! It has been amazing seeing how many people are involved with this production.  We hope to see all of you at the next LoftPAC meeting, Monday October 6th after school in the choir room.  Thank you for all your hard work, Lofties! :)
