Memo Re: Ticket Sales for Performances

Good Morning Parents,

This is a very busy and wonderful time at the BSA.  There are a great number of ticketed events featuring your talented children happening all over the school right now.  It is exciting and rewarding to see our students hard at work doing what they love, but we know this time of year can also be financially stressful for many.

All ticket sales’ revenue from BSA events and performances go directly to support the school’s annual operating budget and provide a significant (and necessary) source of income for the school.  These funds pay for part-time arts teachers, scholarships, master class opportunities, academic interventions, materials and supplies and so much more. 

This all said, we know that there are different times in life when resources might be limited and we are always prepared to waive costs of tickets for individuals as we are able. 

Please feel comfortable at any time letting me know if there are extenuating circumstances and I will be happy to work out ticket plans with you- we would never want you to miss an opportunity to watch your child perform.
