A note from The Justice League…This Wednesday marks the 50th anniversary of the historic 1963 March on Washington, a watershed moment in the Civil Rights Movement that helped usher in sweeping civil rights legislation and a sea change in public opinion.  To learn more about the March, tune into your local PBS station TODAY at 9:00 pm for the premiere of the documentary “The March”, narrated by Denzel Washington. Over 250,000 Americans thronged to the capital on that momentous day to peacefully demand an end to two centuries of discrimination and injustice.

Cannon Theater Company auditions for both the fall production of Rhinoceros and the winter production of Much Ado About Nothing will take place after school from Wednesday August 28 through Wednesday September 4. Students can sign up for a half-hour audition slot and pick up audition info by the Cannon Theater Company bulletin board located in the Upper School building inside the stairwell near Foundation Hall. Those students with fall athletic commitments who would like to audition for the winter production but aren’t available to audition after school will be able to sign up for an alternative audition time. Students only interested in doing tech for theater productions don’t need to audition, and there will be more info on tech in the coming weeks. Email Andy Macdonald at with any questions.
