I hope you have been staying cozy and warm amid the snow the past few days. I will be adjusting some of our schedules to avoid potential challenges in the weather…but really if you don’t feel safe getting to school due to weather, please just email to let me know. Student safety is always our number one priority, even though we have performances coming up that we need to prepare for being safe and healthy comes first.
That being said, we will roll with whatever Mother Nature throws at us this week and make adjustments as necessary – if you get stuck at home PLEASE use that time to practice for your ensembles, we have a lot coming up int he next few weeks.
MUSICAL THEATRE CAST, CREW AND PIT BAND: Your T-shirt order forms and money ($20) are due tomorrow (Wednesday, Feb 13 – due to snow days) in the blue box or to me by the end of the day. Extra order forms can be found on this website, so print them out if you need to and hand them in!
I have called an extra rehearsal for cast and crew on Friday, February 15. Please be there from 12-3:00 (Pro D Day). If there are any painters that can come help with set painting, please come and help out! All props need to be finished this week for our runs!
Family Day rehearsal is coming up on February 18 from 12-5:00, bring snacks and water! Tickets are on sale and closing night is nearly sold out, please see me or the office to buy tickets before they are gone! Performance Dates are March 4-9:)
CHOIR: Our Choral Collaboration is coming up on Saturday, February 23 at Belmont from 8:30-3:30. All singers are expected to attend and have been given permission forms that need to be signed and turned in along with $5 by Thursday, February 14. This is a fantastic opportunity for our singers to work with amazing choral clinicians and meet/sing with other students from around Victoria. We will learn a First Nations piece, sing in mass SSA and TTBB choirs and share our own music. I have arranged transportation but could use a few parent drivers if anyone is interested in helping out please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org
