Parent Meeting

09/17/2023 - 8:30pm

Please remember that we have our first rehearsal / parent meeting with everyone tomorrow at 6:30pm in Ayden. We're doing things a little differently this year. All families will stay together in the auditorium to begin with as we go over rules. There are some new policies in place for monitoring that we want to explain, as well as instructions about music rehearsal.

Music Instructions

09/17/2023 - 8:20pm

This show has something new for all cast members: music! Attached is a page of instructions prepped by our music director Becky Rappleyea; we will go over this information during tomorrow's parent meeting at 6:30pm.


Puppeteers and sea creatures

09/16/2023 - 4:49pm

There have been a few questions, so to clarify. The members of the Undersea Ensemble are either puppeteers or sea creatures. In the cast call by role they are identified as the two separate groups and in the music call they aren't, but they will be rehearsing as a single group and the actors need to attend both the acting and the music rehearsals.

Hi everyone! Here is the link for the costume fitting sign up.

Also, don't forget, we'll see everyone Monday at the full cast and parents meeting 6:30pm in the auditorium.
