Following is the schedule as we make the final push to opening night. Review your blocking and music daily: we do not have time to re-teach, correct, or re-block anything. Stay in character at all times and do not talk backstage. Be early enough so that we are ready to begin at the time you are called.
Wednesday, November 16
Final dress rehearsal 7pm (confirmed) Last chance to lock things in! Invest real performance energy right out of the gate so you know what it feels like.
Come early enough to get into costume and makeup: dressing rooms open at 5pm. Group warm up at 6:30, so be at least mostly ready for curtain by then. Make your own arrangements for dinner. No food in the dressing rooms.
Performance order: November 17 cast first, November 18 cast second.
Thursday and Friday, November 17-18
November 17 cast: Carter, Kristin, Joel, Corey
November 18 cast: Caleb, Ashley, Jeremy, Ben
7:30pm performances; 6:30pm call for group warm-up. You'll have a little more time after warm-ups tonight and Friday. Dressing rooms open at 5:30. Everyone stays after the final performance to strike costumes and props, clean dressing rooms, erase orchestra scores, etc. Tell your families now that you may not leave to celebrate until we are done! If you're efficient and everyone helps equally, we should be done by 9:30pm.
Sunday, December 4
3pm performance: details to follow.
We will meet all together in HRH. Don't fret: everyone should still be able to sing. See you then.
