Dear Theater Parents,
Our performers are working hard - way to go! It is so incredible to see how unified each cast has become in such a short amount of time and to watch the friendships and camaraderie build upon doing something you love. Each of you would be super proud to know that all our actors are stretching their comfort zone and putting themselves out there by embracing all of the theatrical direction they have been given. It's amazing. They are amazing.
Please continue to encourage performers to be "off-book" (both lines and songs) and to practice their choreography at home. I've received such wonderful messages from parents that actors are coming home excited and inspired, and we are thrilled...thank you for sharing! This week we will be diving deeper into blocking, choreography, and character-development, working to find our characters' voice, heart, and soul! Putting on a main-stage production is hard work. It requires 100% dedication. Rehearsing for four hours takes focus, refocus, and then some more focus - they're doing great! Our amazing artistic staff is also hard at work, ensuring everyone is giving it their all, yet having fun!
