Talk about an extended weekend! There's a lot going on, and we will be bringing you updates this weekend and throughout the summer. You won't be getting a look at the uniform and costuming until later, but we will be working through the summer to bring you an inside view of all things Cadets and Cadets2.

Want to get even closer? Join the Maroon & Gold Club for even more inside information that won't be released to the public. It's still early and we are well underway to reach our goal of 1,200 donors in the 2017 season! Click the button and donate now!
