Please 'Grease' Their Palms

It's been a few years since Pottstown High School staged a musical but, they're staging one this year -- the classic 1950s drama "Grease," made famous on the big screen by John Travolta and Olivia Newton John.

The show is not until Feb. 27th and 28th at 7 p.m., and March 1st at 2 p.m.

But there's a way you can help out right now.

As a high school student I both acted and spent time in the lighting crew for the shows at Pleasantville High School and I can tell you from experience that not only does it require a lot of work, and a lot of dedication; it also requires a lot of money.

So why not make a donation in exchange for an ad in the show program?

"As you know, this will be a great opportunity for our students and will help them broaden their horizons," high school math teacher Robert Decker wrote in a letter to local businesses.

"In an effort to make this year a success we are turning to our community in support of this great
opportunity. We are asking for your donation in exchange for an ad in our program this year. This ad will also be put  on our Facebook page as well as Twitter to show your generosity and support, he wrote. 

"You are able to purchase a quarter-page ad for $20, half-page page ad for $30, and full page ad for $50."
You can send a check made payable to “PHS Musical” and the ad that you would like printed in the
program as well as seen Facebook and Twitter. 

These items can be mailed to :
Pottstown Musical
ATTN: Robert Decker
Pottstown High School
750 Washington St.
Pottstown, PA 19464

I know its late notice, (My bad, but I really can't manage more than one blog post a day folks) but they would like the materials by Feb. 9th.

"We feel that every contribution provides a positive outcome for all involved as many of the students and their families have supported the community and surrounding area businesses through patronage over the years and will continue to do so as residents of the community. Together, we can offer a great show for our students as well as the community," Decker wrote in his letter.
