Week 5 REHEARSAL CANCELLED TOMORROW

Greetings Wonka parents! PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE EMAIL. And remember, these emails are archived on the school play website here along with a lot of other useful play info. Bookmark it for easy access!

Rehearsal Reminders: 

No Rehearsal on Monday, Feb 11. Alas, another snow day. I hope everyone has stocked up on on all your coping mechanisms, parents! Please have your students continue to listen to the songs online during this break. Encourage them to look ahead in their scrips and start memorizing the lines they know are theirs. 

Please stay tuned about Thursday night rehearsal. And everyone cross fingers that the snow melts enough so we can get back at it! We also may need to schedule a make up rehearsal on a Saturday. Stay tuned for more info on this. 

Costumes: 

Here is your information about costumes! In preparation for the Feb 25th Costume Parade PLEASE READ THIS THOROUGHLY and let us know if you have any questions about your students’ costume needs or need help finding pieces. Remember– there is a $25 limit per child. No need to go all out. 

  • Find your child’s name here to make sure you know all the parts they are playing.
  • Then look here to learn more about what kind of costume pieces we are looking for for each character. 
  • Click here to purchase the Oompah Lumpah beanie (see links for more info). Chose the Neon Green option for your Oompah Lumpah. Please do this ASAP to make sure the hat arrives in time. Consider this as part of the $25 maximum for costumes. 

More Volunteer Opportunities: 

We have more volunteer opportunities on the Sign Up Genius!

Thank you for filling the slots for flat painting on Thursday and the Costume Parade Monitors! Y’all are seriously the best. Our most pressing need now are 6 heavy lifters who will help set the stage thrust (stage extension) in the lunchroom on March 1.

See the Sign Up Genius for more info. Also stay tuned for more volunteer opportunities for flat painting, since we have now had to cancel two of the three rehearsals that was planned for. 

Ads for the Program: 

Each student gets one quarter page ad in the play program included with the play fee. You also have the option of purchasing more ad space. Please see the attachment for all the details. Deadline is March 1st.

Rehearsal Reminders:  

This week we have regular rehearsals on Monday and Thursday.

However, we are aware of the Eckstein open house on Thursday evening. We will assume that if you have a 5th grader, we will not see them at rehearsal on Thursday. Please email bryantschoolplay@gmail.com if your 5th grader WILL be at rehearsal and not at the open house. Also, if you finish with the open house before rehearsal is over, please consider dropping off your 5th grader late. Some of rehearsal is better than none! 

Also, remind your kids that they are to be off-book (meaning their lines are memorized) this week! 

More Volunteer Opportunities: 

We have more volunteer opportunities on the Sign Up Genius! Our most pressing needs are for volunteers for flat painting tomorrow and next week, but there are also other opportunities including rehearsal chaperones and costume parade monitors. See the Sign Up Genius for more info.

Costumes: 

Stay tuned for costume suggestions for your child coming soon. The Costume Parade will be during rehearsal on February 25, which is the deadline for students to have their costumes. Remember– there is a $25 maximum spending limit per student.

Rehearsal Chaperones:  

Remember to be in the lunch room at 6:00pm. Check in with Sadie with Seattle’s Performers. She will be near the steps of the stage. Plan to stay until all students have been picked up. Hopefully this will be shortly after 8:00pm.
