ATTENTION “BEAUTY & THE BEAST” CAST PARENTS!

SATURDAY REHEARSAL:  Rehearsal on Nov. 5 is in the Great Room and is mandatory for ALL CAST unless previous arrangements have been made with the Director. We begin at 9:00 am (not 9:30 or whenever you can get there) and end at 5:00 pm (not 5:30 or 6:00 pm). Cast members are to bring a lunch, snacks, HOMEWORK, and a drink. We will be running the show but there is time for most students to work on homework in between their call times. Students should NOT use the musical as an excuse to NOT have their homework done!

TECH REHEARSALS / DRESS REHEARSALS: Saturday, Nov. 5th (9:00 am – 5:00 pm),  Monday, Nov. 7, and Tuesday, Nov. 8th, 3:30 – 10:00 pm Hopefully we will not need all this time, but the time allows for putting on costumes, doing hair & make-up, a short dinner break, cast photos on Tuesday, and putting away all props, costumes, and cleaning up the holding rooms.

MAKE-UP LIST & TIGHTS LIST FOR ALL CAST:  Please log onto Gradenet and look for this form in the class Beauty and the Beast. It will be in the 2nd Quarter assignments.  ALL CAST needs to purchase CREAM OR IVORY TIGHTS (at least 2 pairs) as well as the required make-up as listed on the form. These items are due on or before Nov. 5th.

SPECIAL NOTE TO CAST PARENTS: Late rehearsals and performances on a school night is not a “get out of school free card”. Students still need to be at school the next day… and keep up with classwork. Homework will be minimal during tech/show week to allow for the musical, but classwork is still required. We expect our cast to be professional. Any missed school time after a rehearsal or performance is considered a regular absence - it is not an excused absence.
