Grand Island Senior High Theatre
Dear GISH Theatre Supporter,
Thanks for your past support of the Grand Island Senior High Theatre Department. As you might have noticed, GISH did not hold their musical this fall, as we have in the past. We have moved it to the spring, and will be presenting Big Fish March 31, and April 1 and 2, 2023. Big Fish is a story that shifts between two timelines. In the present-day real world, 60-year-old Edward Bloom faces his mortality while Will prepares to become a father himself. In the storybook past, Edward ages from a teenager, encountering a Witch, a Giant, a Mermaid, and the love of his life, Sandra. The stories meet as Will discovers the secret his father never revealed.
Other fun things coming up in December is a Christmas show, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever and A Christmas Carol on the weekend of December 8-11. Click the links to purchase tickets, or they are available at the door. The admission for A Christmas Carol will be a donation going to students in need.
GISH will also be hosting District One Act competition on Saturday, December 3, 2022, which is open to the public. There will be eight schools from around the state performing their one act shows, and judges will determine who moves onto state the following week. It will be a great opportunity to see a variety of performances so join us, as well as GISH kids presenting Radium Girls!
We are asking for your support for the Theatre Department at Grand Island Senior High. This will help us provide funding for items for the theatre departments, which is often not included in the district budget. Your tax-deductible donation gives our students the opportunity to work with quality equipment and professional clinicians. With your assistance, we are able to make these exceptional productions available to the Grand Island community at an affordable cost to local families. None of this would be possible without your generosity. The form below can be used to process a donation online through the Grand Island Public Schools Foundation. If you are eligible for advertising in the Big Fish program, I will be in touch with you in February to get that set up. Show your Islander spirit and support the Theatre at Grand Island Senior High.
