Notes:

All ensemble members & orphans will sit in the holding room downstairs during the rehearsals and shows.  Noise should be kept to a minimum.  It is suggested that actors bring books, quiet games, knitting, coloring, electronic games/music (with headphones), etc. to help pass the wait time between scenes.  It is also recommended that each actor bring a water bottle and/or snack to keep in his/her cubby.

Parents/family members/friends may not come backstage during performances or rehearsal with the exception of parents who are signed up to work.  Space is limited and there is just simply not room for more than is necessary.

One of our company members or backstage crew will come down to cue actors when it is time for them to take the stage.  If you are working backstage, please do not allow any actor to come upstairs for any reason until his/her group is cued.  Our company members are performing very intricate scene changes for this show and it is imperative for the safety of all actors that no one is on the stage when he or she is not supposed to be.

Thanks to all for your dedication and support! 

Jennifer Welch
