When students from Highland Park Middle School and McCulloch Intermediate School perform in The Little Mermaid Jr. this weekend, some of them will soar above the stage. Thanks to the effects wizards at ZFX, it will appear as if seagulls are flying and fish are swimming.
Your children could join them in the air. The Jesters and Players Booster Club will raffle auction off two 20-minute flights above the stage. Raffle tickets will be sold during ticket sales; tickets will be available during lunch periods this week, as well as 30 minutes prior to each performance. A few ground rules:
- Students in grades 3-8 will be eligible to win.
- Winners must weigh less than 175 lbs. and be in good physical condition.
- Winners must sign insurance indemnification before flying.
- Flights may be videotaped or photographed, but equipment operation and design may not.
Winners will be drawn Thursday at the opening-night performance, and they will be notified by phone. Flights will take place after Friday’s and Saturday’s performances.
Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, 4 p.m. Friday, 7 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Musical tickets are $5. So are raffle tickets, but you can get five of them for $20. For questions, contact Traci Schuh at [email protected]
