Opening Night Tonight!

This show is going to be great but we still have some last minute things to take care of before our opening tonight!
Any parents that can meet at the theater before 5pm (no earlier than 3:30pm) today please call Liz at 757-580-5499.
We still have empty volunteer slots for tonight and the rest of the weekend so please click on the link below and sign up for some volunteer slots.
Reminder- All actors bring undergarments and proper shoes. Boys bring dark socks, white button down shirts, white t-shirts, and black or navy pants if you have them. Ladies please try to complete your makeup and hair before you arrive due to limited space in the dressing rooms.
Also, if you have any of these items available, we are in need of them for the show:
White duvet and pillowcases
Sailor cap
We appreciate everyone’s help and together there is nothing we can’t accomplish.
Thanks!
HERE WE GO!!!!

Tickets!

Hey Everybody!

We have to boost ticket sales!

Only one person (so far) has sold the required amount of tickets.

If everyone each sold the bare minimum (15), we would only have 420 tickets total. As it stands now, we have 138 total tickets sold. We realize some people will buy tickets at the door but lets make a huge push to sell tickets before then!

More butts in seats means better shows for everyone!

**Also, parents of GSA students should write a note to Chip for their child to leave school early on Thursday to make it to call on time. He is aware and anticipating the notes.

Thanks!

Please click on the link below and sign up for some volunteer slots.  Thank you in advance for your time and dedication. (We can certainly use any volunteers tonight with finishing up odds and ends.)

White duvet and pillowcases
Burgundy or dark drapes for box seat along with rod to hang them
Fishing line
Slanted wood lectern
Marine Jacket
Thanks!

Attention! Important SCHEDULE CHANGE!

SCHEDULE CHANGE!

This show is going to be so great! The students have worked so hard on their performances, everything is coming into place, and the audiences will love it! Its Crunch Time for Everyone – So we need your help to  make the “Theatre Magic” happen!

We have so much to accomplish before opening night and wanted to stress the ALL HANDS CALLED for this weekend. The set is going up, lights are being hung, costumes are being finalized, and many odds & ends need to be wrapped up.  It is important we have all the parent volunteers (at least one per student) present for a brief volunteer/parent meeting Saturday morning promptly at 10am (not 12pm) to go over all the important info, who is responsible for what, and then hit the ground running. Students will be finalizing costumes at this time. The ARB number will still be rehearsing as scheduled.

We are so excited to see this show come to life with all you fantastic performers, parents, and volunteers! Have you seen this? click here

2)    All actors need to provide a small laundry basket (labeled with their name) for their miscellaneous personal belongings. The basket will stay in the Backstage/Cafeteria/Classrooms through the weekend.

3)    If you are wearing shoes from home, you should be already be bringing them to and from rehearsal to get used to them on stage.

*** Students must bring and use their own hair accessories. Please bring a small bag or kit (with your name on it!) with any brushes, bobby pins, elastics, etc. Use of your own hair items during Hair/Makeup and throughout the week will be STRONGLY ENFORCED.  We will be vigilant about this and there will be no exceptions if your child does not have their own items; if needed, we will have your child call you to bring their items from home.

Students are encouraged to bring something quiet to do while they are not on stage during rehearsals and performances (books, notebooks, video games, puzzles, card games, etc).  Be sure these are labeled!

 

Things for Parents to know for the shows:

–          Unless you are scheduled to volunteer backstage/cafeteria/classrooms for the current performance; you should not be Backstage or in Cafeteria/Classrooms.

o   If you need to get something to your actor; please ask someone who is volunteering to take it for you.

–          Once your child is in costume they are not allowed to eat and can only drink WATER.

o   Many of our costumes are borrowed from other theatre groups.  We want to be sure we take extreme care and return them as we found them.  They are not charging us and we’d like to continue to work with them.

–          After each performance, the students will change into their own clothes before coming into the lobby to greet you. This is standard procedure so that costumes can get back to where they need to be and we can all leave the theatre at a reasonable time.

–          As a reminder, students must be signed out by a parent; they cannot be released to an unseen parent in a vehicle.
