This weekend we traveled to Hawaii to meet Harry and his cousin Lola from Lima Peru. We had another great weekend of rehearsals and are making great progress. I appreciate the time your cast member is putting into rehearsing at home during the week. Practicing at home helps embed the performance techniques we are learning and will help your cast member grow as an actor.
I am aware that this coming weekend many of you have plans and will not be in attendance at rehearsal. Please make sure your cast member is practicing at home so they don’t forget what we have learned thus far. This includes going over where you enter and exit the stage as well as vocals and choreography.
Monday, September 4th we will be having a cast get together at my house from 1:00-4:00 for anyone who would like to come. We do have a pool (18′ round by 4′ deep) and we will have games to play as well. If you would like to bring a snack you are welcome to do so. We will provide water to drink so if you would like something else please bring that as well. Our address is 203 Avon Village Dr, Avon 46123. It is a small mobile home park directly across the street (Rockville Rd) from the Avon Wal Mart gas station. Parents are welcome to stay if they’d like – bring a chair if you are going to stay!
Please pay close attention to the September rehearsal schedule. We are getting to the point where we will be breaking up into smaller groups so not everyone will be needed at every rehearsal. You will also be getting a few emails this week. One will be from the costume committee and the other will be regarding sponsorship for our Playbill. We need to have a minimum of $500 in sponsors/shout outs to print the Playbill style format – just like the musicals on Broadway. The Playbill will contain your cast members head shot and bio. This is a great keepsake for your cast member. The deadline for sponsorships to be turned in is September 15th.
I am very pleased with the progress we are making and very excited to see this show starting to come together. I can’t wait to see the end result!
