They are still $26 a pair. If you bring cash, please make sure it is in an envelope clearly labeled with your name.

3. Performance Communication: 

 

  • ALL CAST: We will start practicing hair quick changes today, Friday, April 5th. Please make sure that you bring the necessary hair products to do this adequately. Thank you!

 

4. Misc. Information:

 

  • WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! After looking at the embellishments and accessories that still need to be done for all pieces, we decided to reach out for sewing volunteers. If you are available any time during our rehearsals between 4/4/19-4/8/19, we would greatly appreciate the help! Please click on the following link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090C4EABAB2FA3FE3-drc2019 
  • Fur Elise Opening Cast: PLEASE LISTEN to your music that is now available in the Google Drive folder as much as possible before our rehearsal on Sunday! That needs to become second nature to you all to make the movement look and feel effortless!

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!
