“The Secret Handshake”

This Saturday, March 15, we will be filming a movie titled The Secret Handshake.  The particular scene we are in recreates halftime at a high school football game.   For that, our band will have an afternoon rehearsal where we prepare for the shoot, followed by a session with the director, and then shooting begins around 6.  For the shoot, we need extras to fill the home stands so please reach out to friends and family that might have attended our friends and family night performance back in November.  This is a great chance to show off your acting chops!
