2021 GCAPA Christmas Performance Troupe

Christmas is one of the most exciting times at GCAPA!!  EVERYONE is invited to participate.  In one way or another!  The planning begins in August, the Dress Rehearsal is the first weekend in November and then the performances begin!  As many or as few as you like, kids of all ages have 4-6 opportunities to perform with their peers in real costumes (rented) and for large audiences with free admission.  Join us in a private Band group made just for the GCAPA Christmas Performance Troupe!  Think you might be interested?  Read on....
Fee: $30 per Star or Sparkle/$150 per Silhouette.  Dates: See Below. 
How It Works
1. Sign up for all the dates you choose to perform by registering here.
2.  Non-refundable fee is charged on 11/1.  Dress Rehearsal is on November 6th 11am-8pm.  See Google Calendar 
to see what time you and your Star/Sparkle will travel from studio to studio to receive and sign-out a costume,
take pictures and run their routine in costume.  Men are not permitted at the Dress Rehearsal.
3. Attend the events as they happen.  Attend 1,2,3 or 4 events.  All routines are learned in class! 
****Please note that Performance Troupe has NOTHING to do with the Christmas Parade as they are two entirely separate activities.****
