HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Badger Band Show - coming to South (New)
The UW Varsity Band will be performing at Waukesha South in the field house on Sunday, February 8th from 1-3pm. With the show just a month away, we are trying to get the word out to as many people as possible. Here's the Show Poster we
are hanging around town and encourage you to forward it, post it, or
share it online with anyone you know who may be interested in
attending. These shows are truly a blast, and a great way to
break up the winter blahs! It’s a great show for
those with energetic kids because attendees are welcomed and encouraged
to sing and dance along with the music, so you can bring them to the
show and let them wear themselves out!
week we will be sending a packet home with each band student.
Inside the packet will be a flyer for the show and four show
tickets. The goal is to encourage as many pre-show sales as
possible so we can avoid a log jam of people buying tickets the day of
the show. Students are asked to sell the tickets and will be
responsible for returning the money and/or any unsold tickets to the
band safe by Monday, January 26th. Additional tickets can be
purchased at any of the home basketball games in January, or through
the athletic office at South. Additional tickets can also be
purchased online using a credit card at BadgerBandShow2015.eventbrite.com
(a small convenience fee applies to online purchases.) All
attendees, including students, will need to purchase a ticket unless
they are working and/or performing the day of the show.
also hoping to have raffles the day of the show and are looking for
donations of gift baskets, gift cards, or other items. If you are
willing to contribute a raffle item, or if you have any questions
regarding the show, please contact Toni Ritchie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you at the show!
