Greetings Parents, Patrons, and Viper Players,

Please keep in mind that the Fall Play, The Matchmaker, is quickly approaching (October 4-6) which means that we will need to get all our information to the printers ASAP!

Our absolute latest deadline is Tuesday, September 25 by 4:00PM.  This means if you would like to purchase any sort of Advertisement or Shout Out! you MUST have your order AND your money turned in by that time and date.

If you're still considering whether or not to purchase a full page, 1/2, business card size, or Shout Out! space, please remember...the programs are printed as a courtesy for those who attend our productions and are also a tangible cherished memory for the theatre kids to hold on to forever.

But printing those programs isn't free...not by a long shot! 

This is where YOU come in.  

We need to fill the pages of those programs with as many Ads and Shout Outs! as we can get.  But we, the Booster Board, can't do it all by ourselves!

We know you're thinking, This is the part where they ask for money from me.  

And you're 1/2 right.  Yes, we'd love to see you buying Shout Outs! for your child or spots to advertise your business.  But we also need YOU to talk to your neighbors, your coworkers, that guy down the street who runs that small landscaping business, and the woman you know from your kid's soccer team that has a small jewelry making business.  Advertising in our program is a great way to get the word out...especially if it's a small, local business!  And best of's a fairly inexpensive, too!

Now maybe you know someone who doesn't have a student in the theatre program per se but who does have a student at Vandegrift who is an awesome swimmer or dancer or...oh, there are so many awesome things kids do today there's not enough time to list them.   Or maybe they're a Senior this year!  

What better way to get some show them off and let them know how much they are loved and supported by their families and friends?  Talk about a special memento!

Here's the breakdown:
