Sunday - first lock-in
See you all on Sunday for our first "Lock-In." We will start by working on set and props. Then everyone will change into whatever costume pieces and parts we have, and we will figure out what else we need to get. We will run the entire show with stops for mic changes and getting set changes right, break for pizza at 5pm (bring snacks to share if you can). At 5:30, we will run the entire show again, hopefully faster the second time. We should be finished by 7pm.

Rehearsal Week of 10/10
UPDATES to this week's schedule. Unfortunately, I was incorrect about Monday being a holiday. So we can't start set building at noon. It will have to be after school from 2:45- til? Please all cast and crew come. We have alot of costume prep and organizing to do in addition to set building. Stay an hour or more. Mr. Tipsword will be coming about 5:30 to do some work on the platform aka Tableau Stage. Tuesday is Act 3 and set/costumes. Mr. Tipsword is coming again. Wednesday rehearsal will start at about 3:15. I have a gradebook manager's meeting prior. No rehearsal Thursday and Friday. Take that time to hit the pavement and sell those ads for the playbill. The files are attached below if you lost yours. Remember, we are asking that every student sell one page worth of ads - whether that is a full page, 2 half page, or 3 1/3 page. Let the businesses know that they get a discount buying for both shows now. This is how we pay for our playbill printing and props!!
All Cast and Crew - Rehearsal Friday, Oct 7
Looks like we will have school tomorrow - so we WILL have rehearsal. All Cast and Crew - rehearsal, costumes, and prop from 2:45-5. We will run the entire show. Expect to be working on your costume or the set when you aren't on stage. See you all tomorrow

First Read Thru - Tuesday
Don't forget - first read thru tomorrow in Ms. Cox's room from 2:45 until at least 4. Swim has to leave at 3:45 and band is leaving at 3. I would like to read thru the entire show if possible.

Alice In Wonderland - Rehearsals start Tuesday
Play Practice starts this week with a read thru of the script in Ms. Cox's room on Tuesday at 2:45 pm. We will be getting info on everyone's conflicts so that we can make the best rehearsal schedule possible. Rehearsal Tuesday is 2:45 -3:45 (when swim and volleyball have to leave). I know that band can only make a brief appearance and will take the band Tuesdays into account when making the rehearsal schedule.

We will rehearse Thursday 9/22 2:45-4:45. Early release Friday - no rehearsal (except maybe Alice, tbd). We will have first meeting of set building following a brief drama club meeting on 9/26. Expect rehearsals Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 9/27, 29, 30. We have 8 weeks until the show!!
