Good Afternoon! I hope everyone is well and that the rehearsal of British accents at your house is not driving you too crazy.
Tickets for Peter and the Starcatcher will go on sale to the public, Monday, May 3 at 8 am. I want to share a little bit of information with you about Saturday morning shows in case friends and family have questions. Children are welcome at any of the performances, but we will be doing some special things for our youngest audience members at these Saturday morning shows. There will be some modified language, audience participation opportunities, photos with cast members, and more. We are very excited about adding these enhanced performances to our traditional showings.
Since we pushed Shrek back a month, it has made a quick turnaround for Peter and the Starcatcher (PATSC.) So, as hard as it seems to believe, we are moving in to our tech week rehearsals beginning on Monday which last until 8 pm. During these rehearsals, I reach out to see if we have parents willing to help us out by bringing a meal for the students. Most of our meal times are planned for 5 pm. If you would like to help but aren't able to prepare a meal or pick something up, we do have someone who is willing to take your donation and convert it into a meal. If that interests you, please reach out to me directly. To sign up for a meal, please click HERE. We have 15 students in the cast and crew and we have a peanut allergy.
Additionally, we are looking for some volunteers to help with the box office and concessions at the performances. We will not have to deal with health screenings at this show, so our box office representative will simply be a welcoming face, checking off patrons, and working with the student ushers to get everyone seated. Our concessions volunteer will make sure that the concessions and merchandise are set up and ready for intermission, run the table during intermission, and put everything away after. Each of these slots are about 45 minutes in duration. If you are willing and able to help with one or more of these slots, click HERE to sign up.
Finally, we are collecting food and drink items for the concession stand. The list of needs can be found HERE. We would like to try and have all donations received by Wednesday, May 12. Items can be brought to Mr. Franklin's office in room 302.
I think you are in for a real treat with this show. I am constantly laughing through the rehearsals. Please help us spread the word so we can fill the audience for all of our shows.
Good Morning Everyone!
If you placed an order for a performance recording of Shrek, those are ready to be picked up in my office. If you did not place an order but would like to, simply pop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. Recording packages are $25 and include a performance recording and a picture collection from various performances. You may get your copy on either DVD/CD or Flash Drive.
Well folks, after two dress rehearsals, seven performances, two streaming shows, and a cast party, that brings Shrek the Musical at East Lincoln to an end.
I hope it was a good experience for you. It was not normal, but I enjoyed it. I especially loved watching the cast continue to develop their roles through the very last performance. That is what educational theatre is all about!
I finally have my thoughts together on recordings of the performance. First, please help me share with your friends and family that these sales are very important to our ability to pay the bills from this show. Please encourage them to not simply purchase one copy and duplicate to share with others. I can't force folks to do the right thing, but I am going to try and encourage it the best I can. After all, any money that comes into the program goes straight back into future opportunities for the students. I won't belabor the point, but I hope you understand and will help me share that message.
There are two options for recordings, both are $25.
The first option is a DVD/CD combo. This will include a DVD of the performance and a CD with production pictures.
The second option is a flash drive that will include the performance video as well as a production pictures folder.
Please email any orders to email@example.com. They will be ready to pick up beginning the Monday after spring break. Any checks should be written to East Lincoln StageHANDS.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
