This past Sunday our Freak Flags were surely flying. Both casts learned our challenging choreography to Freak Flag. They got their feet moving, hearts pumping, and they did great! We are super impressed with everyone's progress. As the weeks continue, it will be super important that our actors practice at home. Practice, practice, practice. Retention between rehearsals is key. The expectation is that everyone is off book by this Sunday.
Our Shrek JR. costumes are looking fabulous! This past weekend our costume designers got our dressing rooms ready and organized for our fittings. Set design is well on its way too. A big THANK YOU to everyone for handing in bios and ads on time. This was our best year yet with staying on deadline. I appreciate you all very much.
Behind the Scenes from Sunday's Rehearsal
Please continue to encourage our talented actors to review materials daily! Please check out our resource library for updated materials.
Rehearsal: Sunday, February 19
Everyone should arrive promptly at 1:30 pm and meet in Zale Auditorium. Pick-up will be at 5:30 in the lobby.
I sent emails to both casts this week with specific time slots for each actor. The Blue cast will be fitted Sunday, February 26 and the Green cast will be fitted the following Sunday, March 5. Please refer to the email I sent that referenced the specific times your actor needs to arrive at the J on those dates.
Any parents that emailed me with a conflict, please come on the dates/times you and I have arranged. If you have any questions, or are unsure of when you are to come, please let me know ASAP. Those two weekends are the ONLY weekends available for fittings. I appreciate your quick replies so we were able to get it sorted out! Well done and thank you!
