If you bring food to snack on, it should only be non-messy food like crackers, pretzels, apples, carrots...
PLEASE do not bring any peanut products or any greasy, saucy, or chocolatey foods. Nothing like that should be eaten while wearing costumes or in the vicinity of the costumes.
Also for drinks, bring WATER. Water bottles with child's name on it is best.
NO SODA...sugary drinks are terrible for your singing voice.
It is essential that we are respectful of the spaces that we have been given permission to use and the teachers that work in those rooms. This should go without saying but, apparently it doesn't because I have already received a complaint about one of the rooms...do NOT touch things that don't belong to you. Do not turn on teachers' computers or smart boards. Do not eat the teachers' candy or snacks. The only foods that you should be eating are those that you bring.
Once we are done for the evening, be sure that you have hung up all of your costumes, thrown away any garbage, take home all of your makeup & hair products, and leave no trace that you were there.
Every cast member needs to wear makeup...orphans & males included. Without makeup, people become washed out under the bright stage lights. Hair & makeup are your own responsibility.
Parents - particularly parents of younger cast members - should plan to help their children with makeup & hair.
And, there should be at least one parent/adult monitoring each of the dressing rooms at all times. There should also be at least one adult monitoring the backstage hallway.
Please remember that no members of the cast or the backstage crew are allowed in the audience from here on out.
Finally, I DO have the t-shirts ready for distribution. I will take care of this at the end of tomorrow's dress rehearsal.
P.S. Arrive by noon and check in.
