Dear Theater Parents,
To get everyone in the mood, we put together the following fiddler trailer to help us promote ticket sales. It might even get you singing! If you love what you see, join us for our Fiddler on the Roof movie sing-along on Monday, February 19. It is a free event with complimentary dinner. More details below.
Rehearsals this Sunday were fantastic! Our actors are in the thick of it and we couldn't be prouder of their dedication and commitment. Both casts worked on choreography for the song To Life. Hearts were pumping, feet were moving, and they did great! We are super impressed with everyone's progress. Both casts also dug deeper in character-development and blocking. 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 next Sunday!
Please ensure you meet today's deadline and get in your actor's bio and playbill ads!

Mark your calendars!

Mazel Tov cast costume fittings will take place on Sunday, February 25. We extended rehearsals for this cast only on the 25th from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm to take care of fittings.
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!
