Here at Union Street Players, Pella’s award-winning community theatre, we’ve long known that being involved in theatre helps develop kids into confident, expressive, well-rounded individuals. So, it comes as no surprise that we have five USP alumni nominated for the 2016 Tulip court! We encourage everyone to support these amazing young ladies in their bid to represent our community at next year’s Tulip Time.
USP Alumni nominated are (in alphabetical order):
Residents living in the Pella Community School District who are at least 17 years old may select their top three candidates from the 19 ladies nominated. They can drop their ballots off at the Pella Hy-Vee, Fareway, Pella Historical Society, and Marion County Bank by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20th. Official ballots are included in this week’s local newspapers, and no photocopies or handwritten ballots will be permitted.
Once the votes have been tallied and the twelve finalists are selected, the 2016 Tulip Time Royal Court will be chosen by a panel of judges on Saturday, November 14th at 7 p.m. in the Pella High School Auditorium.
