Our holding area is NOT a locked classroom, so do NOT bring valuables with you. Eat a big breakfast and maybe a small, non-messy snack for the bus, but you won’t need cash for concessions or anything because there really won’t be time at this one.

              Parents are encouraged to come out and support your performance. Naperville North High School is at 899 Mill Street in Naperville. Admission to the contest is $9.00 for adults and $5 for kids under 10 and seniors.
