East Lincoln On Stage
Happy Monday Everyone! This is a very stressful, but super exciting week for everyone involved with Beauty and the Beast. All of the hard work is leading up to an amazing run. Please continue to help us spread the word. We want to sell out all of our performances to not only cover the cost of producing the show, but because full houses are more fun!
Just a couple of quick notes. We still have tickets to Lumiere's Palace Party on Saturday. This is a great opportunity for younger audience members to see the show and have some time to eat and play with the characters. Please let me know if you have any questions about this event. We have about 25 tickets remaining.
If your family is helping out with meals for our cast and crew, THANK YOU! You don't understand how big of a deal it is!
If you were not able to help with one of the meals, please consider donating an item for concessions or a case of water for the cast and crew. Chips, candy (chocolate and non-chocolate), and canned sodas will help us stock the concession stand for our guests. The dressing rooms will also be stocked with water to keep all of our artists hydrated. Any donated items can be brought to my office whenever it is convenient. It would be great to have donations in by the end of the day on Wednesday in case we need to fill in any gaps.
There will probably be a couple more updates this week as we get closer, but that is all for now.
Thank you all for supporting your children in this endeavor! It really is going to be amazing!
Good Sunday Evening Everyone!
I want to first thank you for filling up the meal slots so quickly! The only dates that need to be covered are
Tuesday, February 15
Saturday, February 19
Saturday, March 5
If you are able to help with one of these final 3 meals, please sign up using the link below.
All business ads and parent ads are due by Friday, February 18. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Ticket sales are going slowly, but they are fairly steady. I do encourage anyone wanting to experience this show to purchase tickets early in order to get their preference of seating. This is a very expensive show and it is very important that we sell out all 10 of our performances. Please help spread the information!
Currently, ticket sales for Lumiere's Palace Party are low. I am hoping it is because people are waiting until closer to the date, but it makes me a bit nervous. This is going to be a really fun event and a great thing for parents and children to do together. The tickets for Lumiere's Party include lunch for both adult and child, pictures with various characters, games and activities, and their very own performance of the show! Guests will get to participate in a spitting contest with Gaston, Manicures with Madame or Tattoos with LeFou, Karaoke with Lumiere and Babbette, servers' training course with Cogsworth, tea & crumpets with Ms. Potts and Chip, fencing with the forks, and inventions with Maurice. Guests will also get a few special souvenirs to take home with them. Please help us spread the word so we can sell the remaining 33 tickets.
Show tickets and party tickets can be purchased at eastlincolnonstage.org/tickets.
We are still collecting donations for our raffle. Please consider making a contact for a donation. The more items, the more interest there will be in purchasing tickets.
Attendance from this point on is crucial for all cast and crew members. In a production, we all rely on each other to take care of our specific responsibilities. When one person is out, it throws off the production. Please help me reinforce the importance of regular attendance and fulfilling responsibilities.
If you have any questions, please let me know!
We are approaching the finish line and that means we are also approaching our long evening rehearsals. During these rehearsals, I ask for cast and crew families to help us with meals. This keeps the students from having to bring a meal with them to school or leaving campus to get food.
This cast and crew is large, so I realize that it is a real commitment to bring a full meal. On this sign-up, I have opened five spots in case multiple parents want to work together on a meal.
If you are planning to bring a full and do not need any additional help, please sign up for all five spots.
If you would like to work as a group, just sign up for a slot and tell us what you are bringing.
In the past, some parents have preferred to donate money and have someone else prepare the meal. We do have an alum parent that is willing if this is something you are interested in doing.
Please note that we do have a few food allergies such as mint, eggs, and nuts.
Below is the sign-up genius link.
I want to thank you in advance for helping us make this work as we head into our most intense rehearsals.
