Here’s your chance to take the night off from cooking and still enjoy a great meal!
Dine at Red Robin, 13001 Manchester Road in Des Peres, between 4:00 and 8:30 p.m., and the restaurant will donate 15% of proceeds to the PPA—but only if you present a copy of this flyer when ordering or paying. So print it out and get there early!

Friday and Saturday, November 16 & 17
Upper School Theatre Arts students will put on two nights of varied performances, both starting at 8:00 p.m. in the Drama Workshop. On Friday night, students will star in original sketches they have written, based on the improvisation work done in class. On Saturday, students will perform No Show, a one-act play by Alan Haehnel.

Wednesday, November 21–Sunday, November, 25
Just a reminder to all—the School will be closed for the Thanksgiving break!

Friday, November 30, and Saturday, December 1
You won’t want to miss this “double bill” featuring students in the Advanced Theatre Arts and Dance classes. The dancers have created, choreographed, and costumed a story-in-movement to the strains of The Planets, an orchestral suite by British composer Gustav Holst. The theatre students will perform a variety of classic, contemporary, comedic, and dramatic monologues, duologues, “songologues,” and more. The performances start at 8:00 p.m. in Ridgway both nights.

December 1–3
