COSTUME CRAFTING EXTRAVAGANZA!
Hi parents:
We will start the Costume Crafting Extravaganza this week if you are interested in helping! Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:15 to 5:00 we’ll be whipping out the glue guns to make mermaid crowns and bodices, and mollusk spears and costumes. If you have any fakes leaves, shells, and/or rhinestones, please bring ‘m to the Auditorium hallway outside the Costume Vault. If you would prefer to show off your organizing skills, we also need help hanging up clothes, switching things to plastic hangers, and rummaging through bins for costume pieces. Please email Jennie directly at JBCook91@gmail.com if you have any questions. Thank you!

HELP NEEDED!

Students! We need a lot of help with painting the sets, creating costume pieces, paper mache-ing, and organizing the Costume Vault. If you are available during vacation week and are willing to lend a hand, please email Jennie at JBCook91@gmail.com. Thank you!

PEOPLE WHO CAN USE A HAMMER AND A DRILL NEEDED!

…….or that can hold wood!!

Please contact Mark Terranova immediately to help out with the set building!
They meet in the evenings and Saturdays and really need help.
There are only 2 parents consistently able to come and we need the set built ideally, but the end of next week.

If anyone can lend a hand-even just one night, please email Mark at
mark_terranova@verizon.net  ASAP.

We’ve got to get this done so we can start painting before Feb. vacation.
Thanks so much for lending a hand!! It’s much appreciated!

It’s essential that everyone attend these rehearsals so that we’re ready to open in a month!
If you are out of state with your family (some have already told me)-it’s really important you let me know.
There will be a more detailed Fri./Sat. schedule coming out Tues night based on what I’ve seen the last 2 days and how rehearsal goes today.
Please plan to be there the whole time on both days, that way if we can let some folks go early-cool, but you’ll be there when needed if you plan the whole time.
There will be music/choreographed movement and acting all going on during those 2 sessions.
Please bring money for shared pizza and a bottle or 2 of water. 
Also, please make sure to really go over your lines before these rehearsals and to work on characterization.
Thanks!
Cindy
the week after vacation, we start running acts!  Yikes!
