The Vicksburg Community Schools Theater program is in full swing and working on some excellent shows this year: Shrek Jr., Alice in Wonderland, and Annie.
To support the shows, the Vicksburg Fine Arts Boosters (VFAB) is planning a Coaster Craft event in partnership with Pinspiration. The event takes place on Wednesday, November 29 starting at 7 p.m. in the Main Street Pub. Enjoy dinner in the dining area, then head to the party room where Pinspiration will have everything you need to create fabulous drink coasters in a design of your choice. Pick a theme from this year’s theater shows, a holiday design, or customize sayings or monograms. Choose your templates to try wood burning the designs or painting. Everything is provided. Only $30 for 4 customized coasters to give as a gift (or keep as a gift to yourself!). Reserve your spot today – space is limited! Visit https://vicksburgfab.wixsite.com/vfab/ to reserve your spot, or email VicksburgFAB@gmail.com with questions.
VFAB will again this year set up the very popular Fine Arts Giving Trees in the entrances of the Performing Arts Center during December performances. Fine arts teachers add wishes for program materials to cards hanging from the trees. It’s a great way to show support for the amazing work these teachers are doing with the young people in our schools. Instructions are included on the cards to make it easy to support your favorite teacher.
Thank you for supporting the fine arts in our schools!
