Outdoor Winter Show – The Ugly Sweater

Mr. Roberts, staff, and students in Divisions 1-9 have been working hard on a Hillcrest original Outdoor Winter Show entitled “The Ugly Sweater”. COVID presented several challenges for us again this year as it was difficult to plan for a show when we did not know what would be allowed in terms of capacity limits etc. Thank you to Mr. Roberts and Mrs. Menzies for their creativity in writing such an amazing script and for not giving up. Unfortunately, due to the capacity limits in place at the time of planning, not every class will be participating, however, we were able to include twice as many students as last year. There will be two evening performances for parents of students in Divisions 1-9 to watch.

Schedule:
