Friday Fill-in's
Friday Fill-in 9/13/19

Hello Animals on Parade Cast,

1. Rehearsal Schedule Changes:  I have attached the rehearsal calendar for everyone to have an electronic copy of it.  (No changes to the rehearsal schedule as of today).

2. Costume/Boutique Info:  None

3. Performance Communication:  None

4. Misc. Information: Just wondering if there is anyone available that will be here at MCA on Mondays at 5:15pm to assist a fellow cast family in child care. The daughter is in the Dance of the Hours ballet rehearsal at 5:30pm on Mondays but needs to be dropped off here at MCA by 5:15pm. If you as a parent will be here and able to keep an eye on the daughter or if you have a child old enough to watch her, please email the parent at michaelrachelknox@gmail.com.

6. DRC Webpage Portal: Don’t forget about our webpage that has all of the communication from our Friday Fill-In emails, rehearsal calendar, mandatory dates are now out there and other important communication. Click here to get to the webpage portal.

Thank you and have a great weekend and week ahead!
