That's Right People, we are DOWN TO THE WIRE!!!

Can you believe it?? We open in 19 days!! 
That is going to come VERY quickly!!!

Before I begin, I was going through my emails today... There were TONS of emails from you cast parents asking me about my daughter recovering at home from her car accident, Gabee.  She is recovering very, very well at home.. She will be out of school for a month... She is already stir crazy now that she is off the pain meds and fully aware of her "prison" for four weeks.  Thank you for your care, prayers and concern... She really misses coming to rehearsal, in fact she called during rehearsal yesterday begging to come sit in the wheelchair and watch the kids.. Her liver just can't handle anything right now, and the fear of one of the kids bumping her or giving her a tight hug would land us back in the hospital, so, I'm keeping her away for a couple of weeks.  Mrs. Wirthlin, I might ask if i may borrow your amazing wheelchair for her while she is at school to keep her protected??  Please know she is healing.. All is well.
OKEE DOKEE  Let's get down to bidness!!

There are a few things I need help with:
1) The date of the emergency evacuation drill has still has not been announced.  ugh..... I want to remind you all that if, by any chance this drill falls on a rehearsal day, rehearsal will still take place!!  PLEASE bring your child back at 3:00 for regular rehearsal or if it falls on a Wednesday, then please bring them back at 1:00.  I know that is annoying, but I really appreciate your support in this.

2) We are coming up on some pretty LONG rehearsals... 
Saturday Rehearsals March 1st and March 8th.  During these rehearsals I would appreciate pizza brought by a cast parent.  Teresa and I have a budget set aside to compensate for the food.  We just need someone to pick it up and bring it to rehearsal at a specific time, set up and ready for the cast to grab and go... 15 minutes is all I'm allowing for this dinner break. Any volunteers?? Anyone?? :) The time for the pizza to be delivered and set up is listed below on the "updated" rehearsal schedule.

3) The week of March 3rd, Cast A rehearses Monday and Wednesday.. Cast B rehearses Tuesday and Thursday... We will "not" need dinner brought in but we will need "snacks" brought in.. Again I have money set aside for this, I just need a parent volunteer to help with this.  The time for the snacks to be delivered and set up are listed below on the "updated" rehearsal schedule. 

4) Parents we cannot run these rehearsals if your kids are not memorized.  Now that we are running the show over and over again it should come more naturally. It would help if your kids can listen to the music, sing along and/or if someone in your household could run lines with the children who have speaking parts.. It is 100% necessary that they are memorized tomorrow (leads only) and on Thursdays (everyone)

Please look at the rehearsal schedule below and notice a couple of time changes...
