Choir/Musical Theatre/Strings UPDATES Sept 29-October 2

Hello all,
Thank you for a great start up last week, I know it is tough getting back into the swing of things, but we will get there and we will do it together! Just check over schedules, communicate if you need help and keep track of what you need to work on and you will be just fine. Thank you to everyone that came out to donate/help with the Cops For Cancer Bottle Drive (and Mr. Davis for organizing and running it) and Car Wash, it was a big success – our school community rocks!!
Thank you for a great weekend of Musical Theatre auditions – you should all be SO PROUD! There really weren’t a lot of weak auditions, just remember that I am giving preference to 11/12’s where I can…so if this isn’t the year, please come back – because you ALL had so much potential! This year has a lot of constraints on it as far as numbers go and I was forced to make some tough decisions. I am very proud to be your teacher and I feel very blessed knowing the high level of talent and dedication coming from our amazing Reynolds kids – wow! If you have any questions about what you could do better for next year, I am happy to talk about it with you, just send me an email – just remember this is not a “normal” year and we are doing our best to offer what we can. CAST LIST WILL BE POSTED TOMORROW MORNING ON THE THEATRE BULLETIN BOARD (same place you signed up). Again if you have questions, please email me and I am happy to talk to you. My thanks to Mr. Davis, Tea Siskin and Kanika Jackson for being the dream production team and helping with auditions – I am so excited to work with you all again:)
