THMS Performing Arts presents:
The Pulitzer Prize-winning American Classic
by Thornton Wilder
Described by Edward Albee as "...the greatest American play ever written," Our Town follows the fictional small town of Grover's Corners through three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage," and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by two stage managers and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually—in one of the most famous scenes in American Theatre – die. Join us as Tucson High’s award-winning theatre program brings this American classic - as relevant and moving as it was in 1938 - to stunning, beautiful life.
Five Performances Only!

Rome: The Eternal City
THMS Travel Club
March 20 to March 26, 2017
Rome was once the center of the entire Western world, and history is everywhere. It’s in the stands of the Colosseum, which held 10,000 spectators; it’s among the ruins of the ancient Forum, where Julius Caesar delivered many of his great speeches; it’s in the Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo transformed the ceiling into one of the world’s true artistic masterpieces.

Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, extension to Hiroshima
As your Shinkasen bullet train reaches speeds of 200 mph, the lines between city and countryside blur. Traveling through the heart of Japan, consider how seamlessly technology and tradition coexist. In Tokyo, pop culture flashes in HD from 22nd-century skyscrapers alongside Buddhist temples and parks filled with cherry trees. Kyoto treasures its hot springs and bamboo forests, but it's also the home of Nintendo.

This is a Conflict Matrix to reference as you are selecting the periods you want to take for your classes next year. The matrix shows all of the classes that are offered only once, twice or three times throughout the day. It is strongly recommended to select these classes first as they are limited in availability throughout the day. You can also use the matrix to see if any of your period selections conflict with another period you are selecting. (Copies are also available in library, counseling office, and each teacher has a copy also).
Each grade level will participate in the Period Selection Fair in early March; your teachers will give you more information about this very soon. You may also stop by and see your counselor if you have any questions. Please remember, this process is to select the periods in which you will be taking your classes next year. This is not an opportunity to change classes already previously selected. Students are expected to remain with their course selections for 16-17.
