The Follies


We are proud to report that we packed over 350 people into the SPMS theater. We presented a lineup of acts including a hilarious SNL-inspired Weekend Update (staring Mr. Lewis and Mr. Mastain); talented mom and dad musicians singing their best covers and parodies; a game show and other comedy skits featuring teachers and parents; video commercials produced by SPMS Video Production students; and dancing dads! Even the wild parrots of South Pasadena (and one errant peacock) popped in to heckle our show host. It was a magical night celebrating creativity, comedy, music, and more.

Did you miss the show? That’s okay!   Watch it here:

We’d like to extend a STANDING OVATION to our sponsors and everyone who purchased tickets and donated. Stay tuned: we are tallying the funds raised and will soon announce the total donation to the SPMS mental wellness program.

A heartfelt special thank you goes out to Mr. Lewis and the SPMS teachers who volunteered their time on top of busy schedules to participate, and to the many talented parents without whom the show never would have been possible, especially…
