Students in the MVHS Art Guild and Thespian Club are invited to attend the national tour performance of Tony award-winning Broadway musical “Wicked” at the Fabulous Fox Theatre St. Louis on Thursday, December 5. This is an optional day-long trip for students in Art Guild and Thespian Club who have paid their club dues.
Tickets will cost $40 each (a very special student-only rate). You will need to dress nicely and bring meal money. Seating is limited, so the tickets will be available on a “first-come, first-served” basis. Please turn in a permission slip and $40 per ticket by Friday, October 25 to reserve your seat. Please make all checks to MVHS. Thespians may submit their form to Mr. Knight; Art Guild should submit to Mrs. Glaser (students in both -- either teacher is fine).

Can I drive my own personal vehicle?
No. Unfortunately, we probably won’t have room for additional chaperones to go on this trip. Students should be riding on MVHS transportation. If this situation changes and additional tickets/seats become available, one of the teachers will send out an email.
Are these good seats?
Yes! We have reserved seats in the lower balcony (level C). You will have a good view for an incredible student price.
Are there refunds if I have a sudden conflict or cannot attend?
No student substitutions can be made after November 26 (one week prior to the event). Until this date, you may receive a refund if, and only if, another student is willing to attend and pay the ticket fee.
