DON'T PANIC, BUT, THERE ARE ONLY A FEW REHEARSALS LEFT BEFORE WE OPEN!!


Parents, there are several things I need to discuss, please read through this entire post!!
There are only a few rehearsals left before opening night. It is IMPERATIVE that your children are present at every single rehearsal from here on out.  Some of our leads have missed some very important blocking rehearsals, which means we really have to lose one of our rehearsals to "re-teach" the blocking to the kids who have missed. We simply cannot have kids missing rehearsals from here on out. Thank you for your support in this.

1)  Please notice at the right side of this blog, I have added the sign-up genius links to both the volunteer opportunities and the prop list.  Several of you have asked me about these so I have put them permanently on the right side of the blog.

2) Costumes are due..... IMPORTANT GUIDELINE REGARDING COSTUMES....
Teresa and I need to check out at every characters costumes at your child's SPECIFIC NEXT rehearsal.  This means, if you are NOT at rehearsal this Thursday, you DO NOT need to bring in your costume to be checked!!!  If you ARE at rehearsal on Thursday you DO need to bring in your costumes to be checked.  If you are at rehearsal "next" Thursday (2/13) and your costume has not been checked, you DO need to bring your costume to be checked.... We will not be rehearsing in these costumes until March, Teresa and I just need to make sure everyone has their costumes and help others complete the ones they are struggling with.  Remember, if you want to rent your costumes, Centerpointe in Centerville is a GREAT place to rent from.  The Final rehearsal schedule is listed below.  Please do not bring in your costumes if you are not needed at rehearsal on Thursday.  Email me with any questions you have... JSnarr@LegacyPrep.org

3) EMERGENCY EVACUATION DRILL:  I received an email (and so should have you) saying there will be an emergency evacuation drill at the school in the next month or so.  This is a very important procedure our school does annually and I support it fully.  The date is  not yet announced, however, IF THE DRILL FALLS ON A REHEARSAL DAY, as inconvenient as it will be, REHEARSAL WILL STILL TAKE PLACE!!!! We 100% fully need you to bring your kids BACK to school by 3:00!!!  Rehearsal will definitely be mandatory that day and will take place during regular rehearsal hours: 3:00-5:30.. Send food with them please.  Thank you for your support on this.

4) There are couple of things we left off of our sign-up genius.  If either of the items listed below are something you can help out with please email me ASAP JSnarr@LegacyPrep.org.
     A) THE BOUNCER: This person will watch the show from the gym area in a designated seat.  Your job is to 1-make sure no children are running back and forth in the gym during the show... 2-If someone has a crying baby, your job is to kindly ask them to take their child into the hallway.  Just make sure the gym is clear of any loud distractions.
Our children have worked so hard that during our short 45-55 minute performance, Teresa and I want the most respectful audience members we can help provide. 
     B) SEAMSTRESSes NEEDED ASAP for two things: 1-BLACK CURTAIN NEEDED.  We have three platforms on the stage and one platform out in the audience.  These platforms are used not only for Annie, but, throughout the year for concerts.  I need a black curtain made ASAP to go around all 4 of these.  The material will cover the entire front of the platform and will wrap around the front sides about 6-8 inches.  We will supply the black material and the velcro.  The scratchy part of the velcro should be sewn into the material.  The smooth part of the velcro will be adhered to the platforms.
 2-We are curious if anyone has started making or is planning on making our orphans bloomers??? Please email me ASAP JSnarr@LegacyPrep.org  If not, I need to order them. Thanks so much!!


5)EXTRA REHEARSALS FOR OUR LEADING CHARACTERS: 
Annie, Warbucks, Grace, Hannigan, Rooster, Lilly.  
Teresa and I have come up with 2 extra rehearsals for our leading characters..

February 8 AND February 22
Cast A 12:00-2:00
Cast B 2:00-4:00
I know this is an extra rehearsal however, we are in desparate need of working one on one with our leading characters to bring out what we know they are capable of with their acting.  Plus we need to reteach blocking that several leads have missed.

PLEASE email me and let me know if these rehearsals are possible for your child, also, include in that email if your student can attend  all four hours... Or which 2 hours they are able to attend.  I need to make sure every character is covered during both of these rehearsals.  JSnarr@LegacyPrep.org

Thanks
