GCA Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors gathered for the 3rd annual GCA Spring Formal on Friday, April 13, 2018. Students met at the school at 3:45 p.m. to ride on two buses to The Cliffs in Travelers Rest, SC. Once at The Cliffs, the first activity was to have pictures taken. After pictures, the students and chaperones went into a dining room for dinner which began with a mixed green salad and rolls. The main course of Salmon, Steak, or Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo was pre-selected by each person and brought to each of the eight tables by the Cliffs' wait staff. Dessert was also pre-selected and was either cheesecake with berry topping or decadent chocolate cake.
After dinner, everyone boarded the buses to commute to North Greenville University to see the musical, Beauty and the Beast. Before the performance, the students posed for a group picture in front of the Billingsley Theater. The performance started at 7:30 p.m. and there was a 15-minute intermission at 8:45 p.m. The performance was well executed and ended about 9:50 p.m.
After the performance, the students rode the buses for an After-Party at Clint and Kelly Ooten's house in Simpsonville where they had extra time to socialize over fruit, donuts, and coffee. The evening officially concluded at 12:30 a.m. and a good time was had by all!
