Rehearsals have been going well this week, here are some reminders to get you through the rest of the rehearsals and performances –
-Make sure you have everything you need for your costumes! This includes everything needed for hair/makeup and costume requirements you are responsible for bringing.
–Make-up –Everyone needs more makeup! Follow the directions given the first week of school. This is an important aspect of you looking polished and professional on stage!
-No jewelry or nail polish!
–Hair – Girls – your hair is in a bun for all pieces except – “Let’s Dance”, “Round Midnight” and 3rd purple modern. Make sure hair is slicked back with hairspray or gel, NO WISPIES – either by your face or nape of neck.
-Warm-up starts at 3:30 pm sharp on Saturday 5/7! DO NOT BE LATE, OR YOU WILL NOT PERFORM SATURDAY NIGHT!
–BACKSTAGE RULES –
-NO TALKING BACKSTAGE DURING SHOW!
-Do not EVER touch anyone else’s belongings, unless you are assigned to help them with a costume change
-Costume Captains are the only ones to get costumes on and off the racks and bins. You must check every piece of your costume back in after every dress rehearsal and performance.
-NO FOOD BACKSTAGE EVER. YOU WILL BE PULLED FROM THE SHOW AND RECEIVE A FAILING GRADE IF YOU ARE FOUND WITH FOOD OR EATING BACKSTAGE. WATER BOTTLES ARE FINE.
