I hope everyone is getting excited about seeing this show! These kids are getting better every day and I think adding an audience will put it over the edge!
Just a few notes going into opening night.
If you would be willing to provide an item to our concession stand, that would be greatly appreciated! Below is a link to the concessions items.
If you are able to assist with box office and concessions at one of the shows, please sign up using the link below.
If you are having any issues purchasing tickets, please let me know. Currently there are still tickets available for all performances, but that won't last long. Depending on ticket sales over the next couple of days, we may be adding an additional performance next Saturday. Stay tuned!
Thank to everyone who has provided a meal for the cast and crew! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!
And, more importantly, thank you for allowing and encouraging your children to participate in the performing arts. Last night some of them saw a glimpse of what being on stage is like and they were already smitten. You will see some of them explode over the next few days. It is truly amazing to watch.
I look forward to seeing you in the audience soon!
Good Evening Island Families,
I want to share a few quick notes and send out a few calls for help ahead our next couple of busy weeks.
DINNER WITH DONNA TOMORROW NIGHT!
Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks in advance for you help and patience over the next few weeks!
Good Morning Everyone!
We are getting ever so closer to opening night and the excitement is building! I hope you are as excited about the performances as I am!
There are a few things I wanted to go ahead and send your way.
This is definitely a late first update, but it has been quite challenging to get information from all of the students this year. If you requested email updates, you will receive these updates in your email each time they are published. If you requested text updates, you will receive a link to this web address each time a new update is posted. If you would like to change formats at any time, let me know and I will be glad to adjust. The most important thing is that you know you can always visit this site for the most recent parent updates. You can navigate through the top left menu, or you can navigate straight to the page at www.EastLincolnOnStage.org/parents.
PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCE DAY
Lincoln County Schools will be having Parent Teacher Conferences next week on Wednesday, October 6. These conferences are not required, but are available to you in person or virtually. My conference window will be from 11 am to 6 pm. If your schedule does not work with this timeline, please let me know and we can certainly schedule a mutually convenient time.
To ensure that everyone is able to have a meaningful conference time. we have been asked to schedule our conferences and avoid drop-in situations. To schedule your conference time, please use the sign-up button below. All in-person conferences will be held in room 302, which is the chorus and theatre rehearsal room. All virtual conferences will be held through Google Meet and those links will be sent to your email prior to your conference time. If you have any questions about Parent Teacher Conference Day, please let me know.
PIZZA KIT FUNDRAISER
About two weeks ago, the Chorus and Theatre programs kicked off a Little Ceasars Pizza Kit fundraiser. It doesn't seem to be going well, so I am thinking many of you haven't heard about it. First, the fundraiser runs through October 15, when all orders and money must be turned in. The frozen pizza kits will arrive the week of October 25. All of the students have a brochure to use for the people they see in person, but they can also direct friends, family, and community members to our website to order and pay online. You can access this page from the SUPPORT US link, or directly at www.EastLincolnOnStage.org/pizza. To hopefully make it easier, we have also added additional ways to make payments. In addition to cash and check, supporters may also pay with credit card or through Venmo or Cash App. The kits are between $20 and $23 dollars and I think they are a pretty good value for a fundraiser.
Any help you are able to provide with this fundraiser would be greatly appreciated! We want to see our programs continue to grow, and because our programs are self-funded, we need your help to make that happen! If you have any questions, please let me know.
FALL CHORAL CONCERT
Our fall concert will be held in the Black Box Theater on Monday, October 18 at 7 pm. All chorus and show choir students will be participating in this concert. Please make plans to join us as we celebrate the students' work from the first half of the semester.
Tickets are now on sale for the fall production of Mamma Mia! Performances will be held on November 4, 5, 6, 11, and 12 at 7 pm, and November 7 and 13 at 2 pm. Adult tickets are $10 and student tickets are $7. Tickets can be purchased in room 302 or online at www.EastLincolnOnStage.org/tickets. Season tickets are also on sale if you are interested in attending all of our productions this season.
ALL TOGETHER NOW!
The East Lincoln Show Choir will be performing the All Together Now! music review on November 13 through 15. This review has been offered to theatrical groups all over the world to use as a fundraiser helping programs recover from the events of the last year and a half. This event will bring together some of the all-time favorite musical numbers from Broadway and we hope you will go ahead and make plans to attend. This production is included with season tickets, but individual tickets can also be purchased at www.EastLincolnOnStage.org/tickets.
I look forward to talking with many of you next week during conferences and I hope you will keep an eye out for emails and text messages providing more information as we continue to move through the semester. Thank you for allowing your child to participate in our programs! I am very glad to have them!
