Grease Is This Weekend!


Due to the high volume of tickets sold for these performances, and limited parking, we will offer shuttle bus services from Hagan Elementary School to the High School.  The shuttle will pick up at Hagan between 6:15 pm and 6:50 pm in 5 to 10 minute increments with a return shuttle to Hagan Elementary immediately after the performance.
I strongly encourage you to take advantage of this service.
