Dear Theater Parents!
It’s amazing what our performers have been able to accomplish is just two weeks! Take a sneak peak at these behind the scenes videos of our senior cast in action learning blocking, music, and choreography. Next week we will showcase our junior cast.
Practicing at Home
Keep up the good work encouraging your performer to learn all the songs, to practice their choreography, and to get off book!
Some of you maybe be wondering...“How can I can help"? Let them put on a mini showcase for you, ask to see what they have learned at rehearsals, play the CD in the car, and/or set time aside each night for them to review their lines and music. Your interest and involvement will go a long way; it already has! Thank you.
Pictures from Both Casts
Rehearsal - Sunday, February 7 (drop-off in Zale Auditorium)
Both casts will meet in Zale Auditorium at 1:30 pm. Pick up will be at 5:30 pm. Please remind our performers to bring their scripts and a pencil.
Thank you to those who took our advice and provided healthy snacks; it made a difference. Please continue to do your best to provide healthy snacks, low in sugar. While many of you rely on the vending machine, please minimize that as an option if possible. Healthy, low-sugar snacks help to keep our performers engaged, focused, and on task.
