What better end is there to a Project Wrap-In than the Upper School talent show??? Eat some cookies, wrap some presents, then get up on stage and show off your talent! Any and all talents are welcome – if you can underwater basket weave, you bet your baskets we want to see that!! If you can play the guitar with your toes, well, that’s kind of gross, but we want to see that too!!!  Just fill out this quick survey to sign up before auditions on November 17: can’t wait to put on a great show with you!!!
