  • Performance at Dean Lesher Center in Walnut Creek from 4:30PM-6:00PM

The dress rehearsal takes place at the Lesher Center. We will meet at the backstage entrance on Locust Street, and we are asking that parents drop their children off directly at the theater. If this is impossible, contact your room parent to arrange a carpool. If you cannot find a ride, let your classroom teacher know.

Students should arrive according to the following timetable:

  • Middle School – 9:00AM
  • 3-5 Grade – 9:10AM
  • K-2 – 9:20AM
  • Hoot Owls and Owlets – 9:30AM

If you have more than one student, you may arrive at the later time indicated. Students should be picked up at the same door at 12:00PM. Extended care is available at Saklan only until 3:00PM, and if you need to reserve a space on the van for your child back to school in between the rehearsal and the concert, contact the office ASAP. We will not be transporting students to the concert.

For the concert, students must arrive by 4:00PM. The ushers are very strict about on time arrival. Students should find their teachers in the lobby and go into the theater with their class. Parents and friends need to get tickets from the box office (they are free!) and give them to the ushers as they enter the theater.
