FINAL TWO WEEKS OF REHEARSAL INFO:

FINAL DRESS REHEARSAL

Final Dress rehearsal is Tuesday, Mar. 8th, 2022. This rehearsal STARTS AT 6 pm and ends at 9 PM. Please make sure your children have eaten before rehearsal. They are welcome to bring snacks, but need to clean up any messes. Please make sure ALL HAIR AND MAKE UP is ready, appropriate shoes are on as part of their costume, and all costume pieces are worn. We will be taking photos at this rehearsal, so they need to look their very best!  Final Dress Rehearsal is a non-audience rehearsal. 

 

PERFORMANCES

The show performs March 9-11, 2022 at 7 pm. The children need to be at the school by 6 pm. The show should run about 80 min with an intermission. 

 

CLEAN UP

We would like our parents to remind their children to pick up after themselves after the show. Our "greenroom" hall for the actors is often filled with garbage and food and we don't like leaving that mess for our custodial team. Encourage them to pick up any trash they see.

 

CONCESSIONS

Volunteer sign ups are available to help with concessions.

 

VIDEO AND PHOTOS OF THE SHOW

The show will be video taped and is directly linked into our sound system, so whatever is heard on the mics is piped right into the camera and heard super well. This footage is then edited and mixed by our Sound and Lights Designer, Richard Holdman. We will also be putting ALL of the production photos online and send the link to parents (photos are free). The final cut of the play video will be a digital download and included in the participation fee.
