REHEARSAL THIS WEEK Jan. 16:
ANNIE and ORPHANS
Blocking on stage the song MAYBE
We had a FANTASTIC rehearsal this past Thursday! This practice included all members of both casts. Miss Jules, Miss Erin, Nikki our producer, and I wereblown away by how well they did! We were sure most of the time would be spent reviewing choreography forgotten over the long break, but our wonderful students practiced during their time off and came back ready to go! Students were also inspired by watching one another. Our NYC characters had never had a chance to see Rooster, Lily, and Miss Hannigan do Easy Street…a true show stopper. The orphans got to show off their amazing work in Hard Knock Life and Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile, and NYC, the most complicated number by far, had us standing and cheering. I can’t tell you how much we enjoy working with these talented, dedicated kids – you are going to be so proud of them!
Here are a few items we reviewed at our Parent Meeting:
We would also like to extend a big thanks to all of you parents for attending our meeting and signing up to help. We simply cannot do the show without you. Nikki, our Producer, is doing a great job coordinating all of the volunteer efforts and Hope Taft was kind enough to create two lists for us on Sign-up Genius.
The first one is for HELPING us get the production ready. Volunteer opportunities such as donating concessions, helping paint or build the set, ushering, etc. Here is our "helpers" link: http://www.signupgenius.com/
The second is link for the props we need for our production. If you have any of these lying around or want to help track these down, please sign up for our props!!

If you haven’t signed up to help with the production yet, please do so – we need you! J
We were able to move some set pieces out of the school’s storage unit on Saturday and we should have the rest of it transferred by Friday. Woot woot! Things are starting to come together!
Please check the blog for details on performance dates and buying tickets. It was announced in our parent meeting last Thursday that tickets will be reserved seating and limited to 130 tickets per night as we will not be opening the large accordion doors to the gym area (this will make audience experience much more enjoyable!). Beginning January 23, tickets will be available for purchase at every Annie rehearsal. We are opening them to Annie cast only at this point. Beginning February 20, tickets will be available school-wide every day in the music room from 8:00 - 9:15 and from 2:15 to 3:00 in addition to Thursday rehearsals.
Remember costumes are due January 24. Students should bring them to rehearsal for approval. Some students have expressed an interest in renting their costume. This is NOT required, but if you would like to go this route, Centerpoint Legacy Theater in Centerville rents costumes at --reasonable rates. The general number at the theater is 801-298-1302. Ask for Jenny in the Costume Rental Department to set up a time. Please send us an email if you have any questions about your child’s costumes.
Please remember that all cast members should have their lines memorized by January 23.
Thanks again for your support. It’s going to be a great show!
