Brent and Maya Show!

Secret Agents Butterfly and Honeymoon

YES! Theater put on a hilarious show in the VUES school gym on September 29.  They were secret agents from Britain, trying to capture Dr. Awful ( Mr. Sawyer). The whole school could not resist laughing out loud, and that includes the teachers! We are glad to have Brent and Maya perform here at VUES. 

Dr. Awful shows off his muscles!
