Good Afternoon Shrek Families!
I hope everyone is well and looking forward to the upcoming performances of Shrek the Musical.
I want to begin by thanking all of the families that generously signed up to provide a meal for the cast and crew during tech week and production weeks. These meals are a great time saver that allows us to maximize our rehearsal time, but even more than that, it provides a great time for the cast and crew to just socialize, laugh, and enjoy each other's company.
I also want to thank everyone who has signed up to bring in items for our concessions. There are still several slots available if you are interested in helping out. I would like to try and get all the donations in by the end of the school day on Wednesday so I can make sure we have everything we need for Thursday's opening. You can still sign up HERE!
Finally, we are looking for one or two volunteers to help out at each performance. One shift will cover the wellness checks required prior to entering the theatre. This volunteer will simply welcome our guests, ask the mandatory COVID-19 questions, and check their temperature. Unlike the run of Little Shop of Horrors, we do not have to record each patron and their temperature, so this will be a much smoother process. The second shift is assisting with concessions and merchandise during intermission. This volunteer will simply run the sales during that window. If you are interested and willing to assist with one or more performances, please visit the sign-up HERE.
Ticket sales have gone well, and that is great news! As of 2 pm, there were 20 seats remaining for the entire run of Shrek. I am very excited that our new superintendent and at least one school board member will be joining the audience for Shrek. It makes me very happy that they will have the opportunity to see first hand how wonderful these actors and technicians are! There have been a few quirks with the online platform. If you have any issue purchasing tickets, please reach out to me and I will be glad to process them on my end. I do NOT want purchasing tickets to be a frustrating experience for anyone. If you have not already, I encourage you to grab tickets quickly before they are gone.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to seeing you in the swamp!
