For the past 30 years, teachers have presented Class Acts, a comedy variety show, to raise scholarships for graduating seniors in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191.
As a result, a total of $365,000 has been presented so far to students at Burnsville High School and Burnsville Alternative High School to help pay for college and further educational goals.
“We’re very excited to be celebrating this milestone year of 30,” said Jennifer Gandrud, a teacher at Vista View who co-chairs the program with Lucretia Jeffers, a teacher at Metcalf Middle School. “It’s an entertaining program for a very worthy cause. Join us!”
This year’s show, dubbed “30 Years of Class Acts: It took Us This Long to Get This Good” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 8-10 with a 2:30 p.m. matinee on Saturday, Feb. 10. All performances will be in the Mraz Center at Burnsville High School, 600 E. Highway 13.
Staff members will sing, play instruments, act in skits, tell jokes and dance. There will be a basket raffle again this year.
Tickets are $7 and available 30 minutes before each show.
