Pre-ordered and professionally arranged flower bouquets is somewhat a tradition and silent expectation of the cast, including your child. It’s just part of the memory making day. If you pre-order flowers through us, you don’t have to give it another moment’s thought. The flowers will be waiting for you at the theater. You can pick them up after signing your child in and then surprise her at the end. Trust me, they’re essential-especially when your child sees all the other flowers. Now with that being said, you can totally pick up flowers elsewhere; that will do just as well. But after tech week, one week young out of school, and most likely, the visiting in laws, what’s the likelihood you will remember flowers? And if you do, it will be as you’re running to get in the car. Why running you ask? Because you will have spent the last thirty minutes trying to find those darn tickets! You can pre-order those flowers right now by clicking the button to the left. The cut off date to PRE-ORDER flowers for your dancing star is June 1st at 9 PM. After this time, you may purchase flowers on a first-come, first serve basis the day of the show. Information on how to pre-order flowers will be sent out soon.
Finally, there is the more obvious item most parents go for and that is the Showcase Cast Shirt. The Showcase 2018 Cast Shirt may be the most light hearted, just plain fun Showcase shirt we have ever designed. And even better, we will again this year use the higher-end garments from Bella & Canvas!

PLAYBILL AD AND SHOUT OUT ORDERS
Aside from flowers, the other “big deal” to the kids is the CFPAA Playbill. It’s a FULL COLOR, professionally designed and printed playbill more impressive than most Broadway shows. And although it’s sometimes up to about 60 pages, only about five of those are actually ads. The rests are tributes from moms and dads to their baby, from grandma and grandpa to their little nugget...you know that type of ad. In all honesty, if I had to choose between a Showcase Cast Shirt and a Playbill ad for my girl, I would definitely go for the Playbill. There will be a cap on allowed pages this year, 54 max. When those ad spaces are gone, they’re gone. IF YOU WANT TO PURCHASE AN AD IN THE PROFESSIONALLY MADE PLAYBILL, YOU ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. THERE IS ONE LAST EXENSION: ALL PLAYBILL AD REQUESTS AND PAYMENTS ARE DUE BY 11:59 PM FRIDAY, MAY 18th. NO EXTENSIONS BEYOND THIS.
ALL PLAYBILL MATERIALS ARE DUE BY MAY 18TH AT 11:59 PM. THE KIDS SEEM TO FOCUS ON THIS MORE THAN WE WOULD. I AM ALSO SAYING THIS BECAUSE THIS YEAR, THERE ARE Limits TO THE AMOUNT OF PAGES ALLOWED IN THE PLAYBILL. YOU CAN SECURE YOUR PAGE RIGHT NOW EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PHOTO OR IDEA OF WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY. AT LEAST YOU WOULD KNOW THAT YOU DO HAVE AN AD SECURED. YOU CAN DO THIS by clicking the link above.
