Woodinville High School 'Soaring to Scotland' events

Students, supporters, and the community are in full fundraising mode for Woodinville High School's 1999 trip to Edinburgh, Scotland's Fringe Festival to perform. The following were submitted by the students and are ways the community can support the fundraising effort.

Improv Night, Friday, Dec. 11

WHS vs. IHS: A dramatic fight to the finish

   On Friday, Dec. 11th, Woodinville High and Inglemoor High are going to clash once again. However, no one's going to be wearing helmets or knee pads. Woodinville High will bring forth the third "Doin' It On The Spot: A Night Of Improv," competition.

   Improv is theatre in the raw: no scripts, no rehearsals, but plenty of side-splitting shenanigans. The Scotland-bound students have rolled up their sleeves and challenged Inglemoor High School to a no-holds-barred match of wit, comedy, and entertainment.

   There will singing! There will be laughter! There will be snacks!

   The curtain is at 8:00 p.m. this Friday night at the Woodinville High School theatre. There will be a small fee of $5 to watch eight actors, two hosts, and three judges make fools of themselves. Bring a friend or two, or a total stranger, and make sure you're there to watch two of the best theatre departments go head to head.

   Proceeds will help benefit Woodinville High Schools Drama Department's trip to the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland, in August of 1999.

Gift-wrapping service supports "Soaring to Scotland" fundraising effort

   Save yourself extra time during the holidays when you shop at either Barnes and Noble in Woodinville or Borders Books in Redmond Town Centre and let the "Soaring to Scotland" students and supporters do the wrapping!

   The "Soaring to Scotland" kids and parents will be at the Woodinville Barnes & Noble on Dec. 18th-24th and at Redmond Borders Books during Dec. 12th and 13th and 19th-24th.

   When you buy books as holiday gifts, stop by their table and have them gift-wrapped. For items purchased in the store, the gift-wrapping items will be provided and a donation box will be at the table.

   If you wish to have other gifts wrapped that were purchased at these malls, we can do that for you, too. But for those extra gifts you bring into the store, you will have to bring your own wrapping paper, bows, and ribbon. We will supply the tape and the fingers and creativity.

Please help!

Won't you help support the Woodinville High School students that have been chosen to represent our town and our region at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland in August 1999?

   There still is a long way to reach the goal, so please pass on some of that holiday cheer, and remember to leave a donation in the box.
