Fine Arts Night, Grades 4-8

We are getting very close to our Fine Arts Night show on May 19th at the Temple of Music and Art. There are many things that happen between now and then, so I’d like to have you put a couple of things on your radar for that day. The dress rehearsal is during the school day on the 19th. We will take the kids from St. Michael’s on buses in the morning to rehearse on the stage. The rehearsal is from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Students will need to pack a lunch and snacks for the day to bring to the theater. We take them to the theater, but you must pick them up at 3:30. The address of the theater is 330 S. Scott Ave., Tucson, AZ 85701.

Theater phone: (520) 624-7370
