    We will also need a couple of parents to pick up any programs/trash that are left behind in the theatre.

    Parking is available on both sides of the building.  Parking is also available alongside the bus roundabout along Harrison but the west doors will not be open.
    The doors that will be open are the south east doors with access through the courtyard from the north parking lot; and the doors in the South parking lot by the sports fields.
We wear standard "Concert Black".
This is the posted description from the website:
    Male: Black tux or equivalent suit, white dress shirt, black bow tie, black socks, black shoes.

You may want to bring a sack dinner to eat during the NUYCO sound check. If you do, bring only WATER to drink, eat only in the hallways of the school, not in the band room or the auditorium. Clean up after yourself meticulously, please. :)
