For this Friday's 7th grade field trip to Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum, please make sure your child: 

- dresses in layers for temperature range 73F - 96F 
- brings a big bottle of water (no sweet drinks allowed due to bees) 
- brings a disposable sack lunch with their name clearly marked 
- brings NO electronics and NO backpack (need hands free for acting exercises) 
They may wear a small sunhat as audience seats are under full or filtered sunlight. 

Students have studied or will study the play they are going to see, A Midsummer Night's Dream.  As part of the theater's Full-Day School program, an expert educator has visited Portola to discuss the play and the world of Shakespeare.  On this visit to the lovely theater in the woods, students will also participate in theatrical exercises and chat with the cast after the performance. 

This field trip is made possible by your donations to the MPA - thank you!
