September 4th: $600 Festival fee and hotel deposit. All going must pay this by the date

October 1st: $100

November 1st: $100

December 1st: $500 (hopefully can be offset by individual fundraising)

January 1st: $100

February 1st: $100

*All payments made after the due date each month will automatically incur a $25 late fee. We have to pay JTF certain amounts by specific dates. If someone if late then Spark has to cover the fee up front and that means shuffling funds around and teachers waiting to be paid as well.

Hello everyone! 9/24/2018


We are having a very special guest attend our rehearsal this coming Tuesday, September 24th! Shay Rodgers! Shay works for itheatrics and adjudicates for Junior Theater Festival she is also casting one of the new works that will be presented in Sacramento this year. Some spark students may be selected to perform in Oliver Junior during the Festival on the Music Circus MainStage. Only four groups going get to perform on the MainStage with a new work! This is such an incredible opportunity and we are very excited that our friends at Wildfish want to team up with Spark students. 

Please be on time and ready to show Shay how amazing you are by being prepared and respectful.
