What a whirlwind over the past 3 weeks!! A massive Congratulations to our Cast, Crew and Pit Band for an incredible two weeks of Musical Theatre performances of Nice Work If You Can Get It. This show was so much fun to work on this year and the end result was beyond my wildest dreams – incredibly polished, professional and full of kids that put so much time, effort and heart into all of their performances. I am SO TIRED but every minute of it was worth it to see the end result, saying that I am proud is an understatement, I was absolutely blown away with every aspect of this show. Bravo to Alex and Shelby for calling the final show on their own, I know I have done my job when you no longer need me and I very much enjoyed watching for the first time ever during a performance and cheering you all on. YOU ARE ALL INCREDIBLE, THANK YOU, but for now let’s get some much needed rest, I am barely functional:) Lastly, thank you to our incredible production team of Mr. Davis, Kanika Jackson, Tea Siskin, Carol Kerr and Jacquelin Green, we couldn’t have done this without your outstanding work:) Thank you to our backstage parent helpers and to everyone that came to support the show each night, it was a brilliant run of performances with incredible audience support, we felt the love:)
Any musical theatre students that need a poster, I still have a few left. Please ensure you come and collect any of your costume pieces over the next few days and take it home. If any parents can stop by this week to help wash costumes, we have them sorted – just stop by and let me know what you can do! If you left Tupperware or dishes they are clean (thanks Laura) and in the back kitchen, please pick them up ASAP or they could go missing. Lauren you need to pick up your costume bag and clothing itms inside and Owen Andrews your poster is in the band room.
Crew students, we need to disassemble some items and return things to other teachers, so please plan on meeting Wednesday after school and POSSIBLY FRIDAY. If we all get together mid week and put things away, we should be in decent shape headed in to Spring Break. Mr. Clifford has offered to assist with the taking down of the set as well, so stay tuned…we will likely;y just be putting stuff back in the dungeons and putting back any borrowed items. PLEASE COME HELP US FINISH THIS BEFORE BREAK! Thank you to my amazing Crew – you are outstanding humans!
