Photos from MTPA 2019-2020- WE Need Your PHOTOS!

We would like photos from both the fall play and musical. These can be production pictures AND/OR candid shots. We would love to have a lot of fun pictures for the banquet at the end of the year. You can upload photos using this link:

You do not need a password to upload photos. However after you upload your photos and click ”I'm done uploading“ the next screen will ask for a password to view the album. You won’t be able to go farther as we have password protected the album so that it is not open to the world. Have no fear your pictures were uploaded if you used the above link!
