ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

I AM LITERALLY FREAKING THE HECK OUT JUST READING "12" DAYS LEFT!!!!!




Ahem.... Is this thing on?? ARE YOU HEARING ME PEOPLE!!???!!??  ONLY "12" days... You read correctly... "12" ... Read it "twelve" DAYS LEFT til opening night... (insert very loud, very dramatic scream) AAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH

Before I begin this post, can I just say how cute Teresa and I look in our picture in New York on the right... She and I were there 1 1/2 years ago together.. We shared a room, we shared food, we went to famous restaurants...We experienced MANY things in New York, ha ha.. I love that we experienced NY together, I love that we are directing Annie together and I love you!!! (as the girls in our musical say, "BFF")

OKAY PEOPLE... Lets get serious!!!
Today's rehearsal was chaotic but fun... 
Note to a few of Cast "A" parents and MOST of CAST "B" PARENTS!!! Some of your kids are still not memorized... I AM DESPARATE for your help at home... I NEED these kids memorized by Saturday for our rehearsal.. I literally cannot run a rehearsal at this stage without the kids knowing the lyrics to the songs.. If you need me to send you an audio file for NYC, shoot me an email.  I will send it to you immediately... PLEASE go over lines with your kids and MAKE your kids listen to the CD.  They do not know the words to NYC!!!  Honestly, it is desparation now... I am literally asking you to  "HANDCUFF your children to their beds... LOCK them in their closets... SIT ON TOP OF THEM SO THEY CAN'T MOVE!!! Whatever it takes to get them memorized by Saturdays rehearsal... This is an absolute MUST!!!  (thanks for your help and ignore the violent suggestions... they were only a joke-please no emails about my violent requests ha ha)

Other then memorization BOTH casts had an awesome rehearsal... There is a LOT of start and stopping.. Figuring out who is carrying what "off stage" and who is bringing what "on stage"... Everyone was SO willing to help and anxious to get the show running...  I love it!!

Saturday Rehearsal Requirement:
EVERYONE MUST BRING THE SHOES they will be performing in...  Not costumes on Saturday.. We are still working out the kinks and figuring out set changes... Costumes would only complicate things Saturday, HOWEVER Costumes will be worn starting MONDAY and TUESDAY at rehearsal!!  So be ready with costumes on Monday!!

DINNER/LUNCH ON SATURDAY:
Anne-Marie Bishop is bringing in Pizza on Saturday for cast A... and
Forgive me, but, one of you amazing parents from cast B took money for Pizza but I forgot to write down who it was.  Can you please email me or text me (801-865-7563)  Anne-Marie worked out a deal with Dominos and I would love for you to contact her and find out which Dominos and get your order through them also.  I need to get everyone $10 more for pizza.  This is a great thing!!  And while I'm on the subject.  For NEXT saturday, could you please remind me who I gave money too and from which cast?? I THINK I still need a cast B parent to help with Pizza delivery, but, I could be incorrect.  Text me asap. Thanks everyone...

SNACKS FOR REHEARSALS NEXT WEEK!! Parents of both casts.. I need volunteers to come and set up snacks at a specific time so we can eat quick and get back to work... Please contact me (and Hope maybe we can add the snacks on the sign-up genius??)  I am hoping for things like granola bars (the good kind that kids will eat, covered in chocolate), bags of chips, oranges quartered, water bottles, fruit snacks, that type of stuff... Easy snacks that can be opened, wrappers thrown away and quickly eaten, etc.. That kind of stuff. Should be no effort to bring this stuff in... I will pay for the snacks, I just need parents to bring the stuff in and PLEASE NO POP AND NO CAPRI SUNS!! WATER is the only drink I would like to see.  It revives the body especially when they are working so hard..





EVACUATION DRILL DATE ANNOUNCED!! 
The school website LegacyPrep.org has published the date of the emergency evacuation and as I had feared, it falls on a rehearsal date: THURSDAY March 6th.  This is Cast "B"... YOU WILL DEFINITELY NEED TO BRING YOUR KIDS BACK TO REHEARSAL BY 3:00.  Rehearsal will go from 3:00-6:00 as usual.  Sorry about the inconvenience!!
