Willy Wonka News– Week 7 BACK TO BUSINESS!

Greetings Wonka parents! 

Buckle up, folks. We are going to be coming at you with lots of volunteer requests. From now through the last performance in March we have a lot to make happen and we really can’t do it without you!


This edition is packed with new info. 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: 

Back to business! Regular rehearsals this week on Monday and Thursday. 

Different Casts:

Your child is either in the Oompa Cast or the Loompa Cast. They should know which one they are in, but in case they don’t, Oompa is Hadley’s cast and Loompa is Sadie’s cast. Oompa Cast is performing Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Loompa Cast is performing Thursday night and Saturday night. 

We have new and edited dates and times for rehearsals because of the snow. Please see below for that info and mark your calendars.

If you have a conflict with any of these, email us at bryantplay@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Ads for the Program: 

This deadline is coming at ya fast. Please send in your ad submissions ASAP! 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.


The Costume Parade is this MONDAY! Please send your kids to rehearsal with ALL their costume pieces in a container with a lid like a bankers box or plastic tub (with a lid). These boxes and costume pieces will come back home with them after rehearsal with instructions about any additions or edits that need to be made if necessary, as well as when costumes need to come back in their boxes to be stored at school.  

Volunteer Opportunities:  

  1. We need one more rehearsal chaperone for this Thursday’s rehearsal to go with crew. 
  2. We are still in need of 5 more heavy lifters who will help set the stage thrust (stage extension) in the lunchroom on March 1st. Pretty please! The more strong backs we have for this the faster it will go. 
  3. We need more flat painters on 3/4 and 3/7! You will be helping the crew paint scenes onto the flats. Scenes will already be drawn– you will just be filling in the color. It’s like those meditative adult coloring books but bigger and not meditative, because kids. 

See the Sign Up Genius for more info.
