In addition to evening performances you may invite friends to attend our 2:00 dress rehearsals on Thursday and Friday.

Reminders for Actors and Families

Thank you for sharing your little actors with us and helping us with snacks through
these two weeks!

Here are some reminders for you:
1. Starting Monday, July 15th, our actors will no longer use scripts during practice. Please continue to work on lines, music and dance steps at home. Actors should know all their lines by Monday so we can work on developing confidence and teamwork during week

2. If you are having difficulty finding the script or music online please see a staff member for assistance.

3. Costume parade will be first thing Tuesday, July 16. Please come in full costume and bring a change of clothes. We will have each actor cross the stage in costume and then take a group picture on stage. Then actors will change back into street clothes for the rest of the day. We ask parents or responsible adult to stay and help their children to change and then ask parents to be responsible for their own costume. We know you have worked hard on them!

4. On Monday order forms will be available for you to purchase individual and group cast pictures, and DVDs of the performance. Kristi Deerman is our Workshop Photographer. She is graciously giving all proceeds back to the workshop. Purchase of  pictures and DVDs will be used by Parnell Memorial Library Foundation to support future Children’s Theater Workshops. Thank you for your support!

5. Please have your actors come in costume on Thursday and Friday the 18th and 19th. We will have 2:00 dress rehearsals. We expect to be finished by 3:00, but please be flexible with dismissal times those days. We encourage our actors to get some rest and get something to eat before returning to the library meeting room at 6:00 in full costume, hair and makeup (if you choose to use makeup). We will be taking pictures and recording actors for DVD introductions. Your promptness at 6:00 is much appreciated. Performances will be at 7:00. We will begin seating audience at 6:45.

6. We are thrilled that so many children are able to participate in this year’s workshop. We want every family to be able to see their star shine. Each family will have a certain number of seats for each evening performance. (That number is coming soon). We ask that you let us know how many seats you will need at Tuesday afternoon check-out on the 16th . You may request additional seats and we will grant them as available. In addition to evening performances you may invite friends to attend our 2:00 dress rehearsals on Thursday and Friday. Please remember that we will be recording the Friday evening performance. If you have a guest with young children that may become fussy during a performance, we ask that they not attend the Friday evening performance, but choose one of the other options. Also please ask them to be prepared to step out as needed.
