Drama Festival - Bulletin # 1


Dear Fellow Colleagues and Thespians,


The deadline for committing to February 2012 AASCA Drama Festival has past, however with two spots open, we would like to extend our invitation deadline to November 30th. Original schools committed, we have only two spots remaining. AASCA Drama Festival occurs every two years and this year’s festival is destined to be great. Don’t wait until 2014! Okay, what are the details you ask?


Wednesday February 15th and February 19th will be traveling days. Furthermore, the Ice Breaker activity is planned in the evening of February 15th and the Opening Ceremony in the morning of February 16th.


Our “Festival Hotel”, the Marriot Residences in Escazú is graciously holding rooms for you. Please find details and amenities in the attached document. CDS has locked in a group rate of $129 plus taxes. Regular rate is $175. You will save $30 per room. We have checked other area hotels and this is an excellent rate! The hotel has an adjacent outdoor mall, restaurants, and IMAX movie theater, and best of all, it is 10 minutes from Country Day School. Rooms are reserved until December 1st. After December 1st CDS will release the rooms for outside reservations, participating schools must make their own hotel arrangements, and above quoted rates may change.
