Sat May 19th @ 3:30pm – @ Moore Aud. ARRIVE at 3:15pm
Dress rehearsal is always quite eventful; there will be a lot of starting & stopping, that is why it is a rehearsal. Don’t get discouraged; things will come together for the show! All students need to attend the dress rehearsals! Please do not be late!! We will then run the entire show beginning with the curtain call/finale so students may leave when they are no longer needed.
Please arrive promptly in full costume, hair and make-up done!
"Inspire" is on Sunday May 20th at 2:30pm. Call time for all students to be at the auditorium dressed & ready in make-up & hair is 1:45pm.
Notes for Our Stars: During the rehearsal and the actual show, students will remain in dressing rooms backstage or sitting in auditorium with their class once they have checked in. Our “Star Staff" will be in the dressing rooms and with your child’s class to help change their shoes & accessories.
Students who have more than one costume will be receiving separate instructions for costume changes. You will get to meet your child’s star staff at dress rehearsal. We ask that parents remain in the audience section of auditorium during the rehearsals & shows. If your child needs you, we will definitely get you. Please let your child's Star Staff Worker know any info that you feel will be helpful in keeping your child happy. If you do not feel comfortable with this arrangement let us know. The day of the show, you may want to have your child put a book or coloring book in their bag. This will help to relieve tension & “waiting for my turn” to go on.
ALL ACCOUNTS MUST BE AT ZERO BALANCE BY MAY 10TH! No exceptions!!!
