Willy Wonka News– Week 1

Greetings Wonka parents!

This is your first installment of our weekly newsletter. Please read all of it. This is how we will communicate important news for the coming week.

Rehearsal Check In: 

Thank you all for rolling with the chaos of the first rehearsal. You will not need to check-in your kids for future rehearsals. Please have them in the lunch room by 6:15. Seattle Performers staff will take roll at the start of rehearsal and names of those absent will be given to parent chaperones. We will call you if we didn’t hear from you about your student being out. Please remember to email  bryantschoolplay@gmail.com as soon as you know that your student will miss a rehearsal.

Rehearsal Check Out: 

If you indicated on the registration paperwork that a parent/adult must check out your student from rehearsal, you will find them and a sign out sheet on the steps of the stage in the lunch room. If you didn’t hear from me last week that you chose parent check out on the form, then you chose the option that allows your students to check themselves out. These students will be allowed to leave once rehearsal is done. Please make sure your kiddos know where to meet you/ who is picking them up/ what they are supposed to do after rehearsal. THANK YOU PARENTS!  All current slots for rehearsal chaperones are filled. Who’s the best? You are. Don’t worry, if you didn’t get to sign up, we will have more opportunities coming up. 

Rehearsal Chaperones: 

  • Timing is everything—  Please 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 (PLEASE BE ON TIME TO PICK UP YOUR KIDS). Seattle’s Performers staff are not responsible for the kids after 8:00pm and will not be staying on site after that. 
  • Absent students— Please come to rehearsal with your cell phone (if you don’t have one, email us and we can problem solve). After Seattle Performers staff call role they will give you the names of those who are absent. Please text these names to Liza on Mondays 206.240.4818 and Traci on Thursdays 206.816.2362. That’s all! We will text you back only if there is follow up. 

Log Your Volunteer Hours: 

Please log all your volunteer hours on this simple google form. Enter your first and last name, date, number of hours, and what you did. There are handy drop down menus to help. You can bookmark the form and enter data each time you volunteer. This will make it super easy for us to let the school know the total volunteer hours it takes to put on this show. 

Volunteer Leads: 

We still have a few volunteer positions available to head up a specific pieces of the show. We have one parent who is interested in taking a lead on Props, but would really like a co-lead to share the load. We also need someone to lead on Costumes and Back-of-the-House (coordinating volunteers for backsatge, lighting, set up and take down). We are not asking for a person to do all the tasks associated with these, but someone to take the lead on coordination.
