For the 32nd consecutive year, District 191 staff will be presenting “Class Acts,” a comedy variety show, to raise scholarships for graduating seniors in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191.
As a result, more than $250,000 has been presented to students at Burnsville High School, Burnsville Alternative High School and the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage Transition (BEST) program to help pay for college and further educational goals.
This year’s show, “Class Acts Olympians ... Going for the Gold,” will feature staff members singing, playing instruments, acting, telling jokes and dancing. There will also be a basket raffle again this year.
“Choosing a theme for Class Acts this year was easy. We are ALL champions! Staff, families, community and students all work together to make One91 the great district it is," said Jen Gandrud, Class Acts co-chair and teacher at Vista View Elementary. "We celebrate our diversity and our differences. We support each other and build each other up when needed. Olympics brings the world together. We will celebrate our upcoming journey and create new pathways together.”
Performances are scheduled for March 5-7 at 7 p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, March 7. All performances will be in the Mraz Center at Burnsville High School, 600 E. Highway 13.
Tickets are $7 and available 30 minutes before each show or by contacting Jen Houtman at firstname.lastname@example.org
