2020 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 Facebook group made just for the GCAPA Christmas Performance Troupe!  Think you might be interested?  Read on....
Fee: $30 per Star or Sparkle/$100 per Silhouette.  Dates: See Below. 
How It Works

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.
