Are you ready for it? We've had so much fun with one Taylor Swift week, we decided to add another one! 

 

Swifties will spend this week learning to perform songs from all their favorite eras - from Fearless to 1989! All's Well That Ends Well with a stadium-worthy performance as the opening act at Simply Music’s High School Musical Jr production on Saturday, August 10, at 7:00 p.m.

 

From learning choreography, to creating props, to learning set design, your child will own the stage with the confidence of a true pro! So put on your Cardigan and make the friendship bracelets - you're guaranteed to not have a Cruel Summer.

 

Each performer receives two comp guest tickets to High School Musical Jr in addition to free admission for the performer.
