Not sure what to give your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day? Copperstar Repertory Co. has an idea.

The Gilbert-based theater non-profit, in an effort to fund programs and educational opportunities, is offering singing telegrams starting at $55.

“We’re trying to do something that’s fun and that will help fund scholarships for camps,” said Mary-Jo Owaka, Copperstar president.

The “Love Notes” will also help cover transportation costs for student matinees of their shows.

All Love Notes include a written telegram and choice of the Turtles’ “Happy Together,” Nat King Cole’s “L-O-V-E,” “That’s How You Know” from Enchanted, Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours,” Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are,” or the Four Seasons’ “Can’t Take my Eyes Off of You.”

Love notes can be individualized to include a stuffed animal, rose, balloon, chocolates and more.

“Groups of four will sing for you, with harmony,” Owaka said.

The singers are principle characters from past and present Copperstar productions, she said.

And if you fall into the cliché category of people who forget Valentine’s Day, the company also has an “I’m Sorry” telegram option for Feb. 15.

Copperstar will be performing Les Miserables March 27 to 30 at the Mesa Arts Center.
