Information for Participants
"To Glee or Not to Glee offers a unique platform for students to perform that isn't found anywhere else. One of the most enjoyable opportunities out!" Kyle Eckersley, Dalby State High School
Once you've registered to participate in To Glee or Not to Glee, there are a few things you will need to know:
I, that please some, try all, both joy and terror
Of good and bad, that makes and unfolds error ... (Act 4 Scene 1)
… The gifts she looks from me are pack'd and lock'd
Up in my heart; which I have given already,
But not deliver'd … (Act 4 Scene 4)
… Do as the heavens have done, forget your evil;
With them forgive yourself … (Act 5 Scene 1)
… we knew not
The doctrine of ill-doing, nor dream'd
That any did ... (Act 1 Scene 2)
… my heart dances; but not for joy; not joy. (Act 1 Scene 2)
Rules for the Night
