Seussical News — Week 7

Greetings Seussical parents!

Here’s your Seussical week 7 newsletter. Please read all of it. This is how we will communicate important news for the coming week.

Costumes: Cast Families, tomorrow is the costume parade.  We ask that your cast member wear their show base layer (black pants or leggings and black short or long sleeve top – no tears or logos) to rehearsal and bring their costumes with them in a bag.  They will be released from rehearsal in groups to go to the parade. THEY WILL PUT THEIR COSTUME ON OVER THEIR BASE LAYER to show Jessilee, our production manager (costumes will always be worn over base layers). When done, they will take their costume off, put it back in their bag and go back to rehearsal. If there are any pieces missing or any changes are needed Jessilee will take notes and we will email you. They will bring their costumes home again and they won’t need to come back to Bryant until Dress rehearsal on Saturday, March 14.  We do this early so if any changes need to be made we have time to adjust.

Show shirts are ready and we will send them home with your student on Thursday. If your child is a Who, they can just show what they are adding on top of the show shirt tomorrow  – wearing it over their base layer.

Crew Families  – crew will be wearing all black for the shows – no tears or logos.  If you have it ready, please send your Crew member in their blacks to rehearsal tomorrow.  If you don’t, they will need to have them by March 14.

More Volunteer Opportunities: Thank you to those who have filled our volunteer slots for flat painting! We have more flat painting opportunities NEXT WEEK and none of the slots have been filled. We really need your help getting the sets painted! Also, we still have ONE slot open on Friday, 2/28 for installing the extensions to the stage. Please take a look at the Sign Up Genius for these volunteer opportunities.

Rehearsal Reminders:  Rehearsals this week on Monday & Thursday 6:15-8:00. Please remind your kids to bring their scripts, a pencil, and a water bottle to all rehearsals.
