Did you get to see LION KING? It was FABULOUS!!! Timon and Pumbaa STOLE. THE. SHOW!  If you are not familiar with CLAPS, read on….

For the last several summers, we have been able to see a few of the CLAPS productions. This is a summer production series at Covington High. This year marks their 22nd season, yet many people still may not know they even exist! So, Dr. Ric Watkins asked me to share the schedule with the best group around – the Northshore Mama readers!

This is such a great program to introduce to your children! It may spark a love of theater, or a desire to be a part of this group when they become of age!

Read more about this program below:

CLAPS (Covington Louisiana Actor’s Playhouse System) began in 1996 with a season of two productions, and was expanded to three productions beginning in 2007. The 2009 season began offering four productions in six weeks. Based on auditions, high school students have been selected as actors, singers, dancers, musicians, set crew, light technicians, backstage crew, costume and make-up artists, choreographers, and public relation personnel. We began with only students from St. Tammany, and have expanded to include a five parish area. We provide students the opportunity to learn from professional artists with formal education and professional experience ranging from the stage to film and grand opera to television. In addition we provide career opportunities for both college bound and non-college-bound students. Your continued support is needed for the success of the CLAPS program.

CLAPS is funded solely on ticket sales, and they need to fill the house this year! So, I highly recommend that all of you Mamas take your kids to at least one of these productions this summer! The cost is far outweighed by the quality! These teens are truly talented and these shows are top notch! Not kidding.

Want to see just how GREAT these shows are? I took a little video at THE LION KING this week. You can see those clips HERE and HERE

The next show of the 2018 season is MADAGASCAR! I love those crazy penguins!! The show will be on stage this coming Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 10am each day.

I have two family 4 packs of tickets for each show! Enter to win below…..

NOW – because it gets hard to coordinate who gets the tickets to which date, I am going to set up a rafflecopter FOR EACH DAY! If you can’t go on Friday, don’t enter that one. However, if you are wide open, enter each day to multiply your chances!! You will get the passes for the date you win. It just makes it easier for me to deal with on the back end of the contest!

*If you do not understand how to do the rafflecopter, watch this video. 

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students. LET’S GO!
