WE’RE OFF TO A GREAT START!  Rehearsals and classes have begun and everyone is really excited.  Thanks to all the students, families and staff of TADW.

Parent/Guardian Committee Meeting -  Friday, July 2, 2010 from 2:30-4:00pm in the Theater Conference Room 104 or another room which will be posted.  Each summer this committee helps organize several aspects of TADW like ushering and concessions.  The weekly Friday meetings are a great opportunity to meet other families and share questions and concerns.  All parents and guardians are welcome!

NO CLASSES OR REHEARSALS -  Monday, July 5, 20010

Concessions Stand -  We will be collecting your contributions to the TADW concessions stand beginning Tuesday, July 6 – canned sodas/bottled water/juice boxes (or other re-sellable drinks) and/or candy bars/cookies/chips/etc.  All items should be pre-packaged.  If families would prefer to make a cash donation for the purchase of snacks or drinks, that’s fine, too.  All proceeds from the concessions stand go to the TADW scholarship fund.

Ushers -  A sign-up sheet for ushers will be available at the Parent Meeting starting July 2nd.  All ushers see the show for free if there is room in the theater. 

Ticket Selling -  A number of the weekday matinees are sold out to camp programs, however there a still plenty of tickets for weeknight and weekend performances.  We need everyone’s help to fill up the theatre.  We’re asking everyone to sell 25-50 tickets each.  Please help by letting friends and families know they can buy tickets. Tickets may be ordered online by going to the TADW website at or by calling the TICKET OFFICE 818/677-2488, or at the Associated Students Ticket Office on campus.  We have beautiful brochures that you can give out.  We also have posters that can be displayed in local stores. 

Sponsors -  We are looking for individuals, families, and businesses who would like to make a tax-deductible contribution and sponsor under-privileged youth organizations by buying tickets for them to see our shows.  Please contact Doug Kaback to make a donation or to sponsor a group of your choice.   

Carpool List -  A list of all TADW members is available and has been distributed.  If your son or daughter did not give it to you, please ask for it or email Beth.
