Important: Festival Parking

The big show day is fast approaching! This note has a lot of detail - some of it is NEW - so please read carefully.

IMPORTANT Re Parking at the theater!

  • We will have one PCC parking pass for each TIS household (families with parents in separate households will get two). We will put the parking passes in student lunchboxes next week (we will let you know when they have been given out). You will need to put that parking pass on your dashboard, or you WILL get a ticket. 
  • Parking spots may be FAR, particularly for shows 2, 3 & 4. Arrive early. Be prepared to walk for 10 MINUTES to get from your car to the theater. We will send out PCC campus parking maps next week. 
  • If your family really needs to arrive in 2 cars, please plan to either:
    • Meet in a nearby neighborhood and drive to the PCC campus in one car
    • Pay for parking at the PCC meters (Allow extra time for this. This is not so much about the $$ - it's because parking will be limited and we need to discourage families from coming in multiple vehicles.)
  • See more notes on parking & transportation for each show below.

Notes for All Parents

  • If you are taking your child from the theater after ANY show or at ANY time, you must check out with the teacher. PLEASE - we need to know where every child is.
  • After school on the 13th there will be NO curb-side pick-up. Families picking up from TIS will need to park & walk in.
  • The shows will all be live-streamed! The quality is not fantastic, but it's next best to being there. See next week's ITK for details.
  • Professionally-recorded DVDs will be available for sale at the theater and from TIS receptionists afterwards. DVDs will be mailed to you before spring break.
  • Next week we will e-mail seating charts so it will be easy to find your child's seat. All students will sit with their class.
