Choir/Strings and Musical Theatre Updates for Feb 18-23

Hello everyone,

Thanks for a great week of rehearsals! Special Shout out to our Musical theatre students, we are in great shape heading into tech week, I AM INCREDIBLY PROUD OF YOU, we have a great show on our hands. That being said, please ensure you are taking care of yourself over the next few weeks, which means GOING TO BED EARLY, SAVING YOUR VOICE (no talking for long periods of time and no shouting), EAT HEALTHY FOOD, WASH YOUR HANDS and DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. It sounds silly to remind you of these things, but it would be a shame to put in all of this work and then you get sick for our run of performances – so be mindful and make good choices! There are important rehearsals and performances coming so please stay informed and organized for the lead up into our upcoming events!

Musical Theatre tickets are going fast and we are SOLD OUT for both Saturday showsCHORAL Collaboration money and forms WERE DUE LAST WEEK…I am still missing several forms and payments of $7, please get these in by TUESDAY during OUR Choir Rehearsals.
