Saturday, December 13, 2014

Hallelulia, Marshmallows and Rainbows, Thank heavens for all that is holy and good, CAST A DECIDED TO COME TOGETHER TODAY AND MAKE A SHOW!!! Not just any show, but a phenomenal, consistent, flowing from scene to scene, Wonderful first full run through - type of a show...
YOU DID IT!!!! We ran that show two times today!!!  ALL of you should be very proud of yourselves... I am.  I am MORE then proud of you...
CHORUS: YOU AMAZE ME!!!!  It is hard to sit through all the "non-chorusy" script, but you were perfect today... Came in on cue, at the right time, you smiled, and acted happy to be there, committed to your characters, and all that jazz.  It was just an amazing "feast for your eyes"type of day...

WOW WOW WOW!!!  Literally so excited about Wizard of Oz, for Cast A.  The audience is NOT going to know what hit them!!! 5th and 6th graders? I think not.. You're as good as any high school I have ever directed... I LOVE you all.. I cannot wait for your parents to see you.. YOU ROCK!!!  

REHEARSAL MONDAY:
  Cast A "5" leads (Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tinman, Lion) will be in a secluded place off stage with me or Fiona  running your lines and working on your characters. Your rehearsal will end at 6:30.



Cast B and EVERYONE ELSE will be running the show on the stage....
This rehearsal on Monday will end at 7:30.
Sorry, I know it's late, but, make sure your kids have brought their homework.   There are several times throughout the show that the chorus will be able to do homework,unfortunately Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion will be on stage the entire time---making their homework be low on the priority scale until they are home from rehearsal.

SO SO SO GOOD TODAY Cast A!!!  I just can't get over it!! Fiona and I were proud as peacocks and all smiles after everyone went home today... You all just make me so very proud... 
I am so honored to be your director.. I am so priviledged to work with you amazing kids... I am so lucky to know all of you and your individual strengths.

Love you all so very, very much. 
Have a wonderful weekend.  
See y'all MONDAY no later then 3:45!!
xoxo Jules

no rehearsal saturday OR mondahy

(before I begin, I want to make sure everyone got my email regarding December 27th.  We are renting out a movie theater at Farmington Station for $10/person.  Must be paid in advance to me (checks, cash or PayPal-email address is GoocheeGirl@aol.com).  $10 gets you popcorn, drink and a ticket to the show.  We will be watching the newly remade "ANNIE".
It is going to be blast to see as many of you as possible at our little Christmas Break Party!!! :)


REMINDER
 There will be no rehearsal on Saturday December 6th OR Monday December 8th.


Saturday a committee of wonderful volunteers will be decorating the stage for the winter concert.

FYI: The concert for K-4th is on Monday, 12/8, which is why we do not have rehearsal on that day.
FYI for parents of children kindergarten through 4th grade, here are the concert times:
Kindergarten: 6:00
1st Grade: 6:20
2nd Grade: 6:40
3rd Grade: 7:00
4th Grade: 7:20
All children must be in their homerooms 30 minutes early.  Parking is a beast sometimes, so, if you are running late, please drop your child off first so they do not miss their performance.

SATURDAY December 13
CAST A Leads and secondary leads, Emerald City Citizens, Ozians, Winkie Guards and EVERYONE ELSE who is double cast as a chorus member on their opposite nights, HAVE A MANDATORY REHEARSAL
(cast b Dorothy, lion, scarecrow, and tin man will not be to this rehearsal.. See you Monday)
10:00-2:00
Parents PLEASE SEND A LUNCH!!!  Also, if you wish, feel free to send homework with your children.... this will be a great time for the Munchkins, Ozians and Winkie Guards to catch up on missing work.

This particular rehearsal is a very long and VERY "mandatory" rehearsal for Cast A.

Sadly, some of Cast A leads are STILL NOT MEMORIZED!!!  Cast B has run through the entire show several times.... Starting at page one and ending with the finale... 
Cast A STILL has yet to run through the entire show. We will attempt to run the show two times on Saturday.... 

Personal Note From The Director for Cast A:
If you are not memorized by this rehearsal (12/13/14), you will force me into making a very hard decision, one that will be best for our show.  We have very few rehearsals left.  We absolutely need to run through the entire show two times on Saturday, and the only way to do this is for you to be memorized.  
There is NO excuse not to be memorized at this point in rehearsals.  You have had your scripts since May... Individual Emails will be sent out tonight or tomorrow to the people I am most concerned about.
Cast A Props:
PROPS TO Jacob Bennett, You have been memorized for a long time now...  That is something to be very proud of, Jacob.  It is SO fun to see your character FULLY coming through!!  I love watching you act and I love hearing you sing... When you were excused from an important blocking rehearsal day, you took the initiative to get together with Zach Wirthlin and learned your missed blocking.  That was SO impressive, Jacob.  Thank you for being such a great example to me and all other cast members.  You rock buddy!!
PROPS TO Klara Laurence, You are finally memorized.  I am so proud of you.  This is a HUGE part and now that you know all of your lines, we can concentrate on the rest of your characterizaion.  I love seeing you flit around the stage in your cutest Dorothy way.  You are doing an Awesome job!!!
PROPS TO Max Staples!!!  Every time you are on stage as Oz, I can't stop giggling.  It is SO out of character for you personally what you are accomplishing with your character, Max.  You just make me smile!!! You have made gigantic strides to bring out your character and it shows!!!!  It is SO fun to watch you transform before my very eyes from fun Max Staples -to- the great and powerful Oz who is at times intimidating!!! ha ha.  Great job hon.
PROPS TO OUR CHORUS!!!  Gabee has given you guys some hard, adult type choreography!! And every hard step she gives you, you just SMASH it!!!  Your energy on stage is so awesome!! Your characters are really coming alive. It is so exciting to sit in the audience and see everything coming to life... Thank you for being so amazing, Chorus!! Thank you for tackling the music and the choreography!! Thank you for being one of the many highlights in the Wizard of Oz.  It is not just FUN but is an honor to work with you!!!

CAST "B" REHEARSAL:
MONDAY December 15
CAST B and everyone else have a MANDATORY rehearsal after school this day.  (Cast A Dorothy, Scarecrow, Lion and Tinman do not have to be to this rehearsal  Everyone else in the cast has been double cast as emerald city, ozians, winkies, jitterbugs, etc.)
3:40 ON THE DOT- 6:30
no tardies on this day please... 
Parents PLEASE SEND A SECOND LUNCH this day.. It is a long day going to school, some kids have early morning rehearsals for other things, and add a 3 hour rehearsaon on top of all that?? Wow, all I can say is ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.... :)

rehearsals through November

WHAT A CRAZY WEEK FOR ME!!!!

I apologize to all the parents who didn't receive an update on todays (saturday 10/25)....  So you all know.... I have a lung disease and Tuesday, it decided to take over my larynx and lungs.. I have had no voice, nor energy to take on the demands of this past week.... Unfortunately, emails to a few of you did not get sent out, and the blog did not get updated.... I sincerely apologize!!! It was not you!! IT WAS ME!! Please please please forgive me... 

I have been overdosing on meds to stop my bronchitis from turning to pneumonia and wah-lah, it worked... No pneumonia.. This is a good thing!!  I slept friday after school from 3:15 til 9:00 Saturday morning!!  and had a ton of energy for todays rehearsal... Again, I am sorry for the few of you who were not updated on the times today... :(  I will not do that again!!!

ONWARD AND UPWARD!!!!
We are officially blocked from page 1-36.... We are doing wonderfully on our blocking and choreography!!!

The following is our rehearsal schedule from no through November!!!! 

Please let your children know that there will be MANY rehearsals where they are only used 30 minutes of the 2 1/2 hours... Make sure they BRING THEIR HOMEWORK!!! Or a book to read (for book reports), etc... I do not time during rehearsal to monitor whether your kids are actually doing their homework, as I am busy directing, but, let them know that there might be times that they are "benched" during most of the rehearsal.. that is show biz!!! But when they are onstage they are AWESOME!!!

Remind your children that Oz cannot be an excuse as to why their homework is not getting finished on Monday Nights.... The goal is: when they are not on stage they are doing homework!!! 



REHEARSAL

MONDAY OCTOBER , 27th REHEARSAL
REVIEW Munchkinland, then continue into the merry old land of oz... (I'm gonna throw this out there... Anyone who is not an ozian, please feel free to be an Emerald City/Ozian... It is up to you the parents because it will be one more costume that needs to be put together and ALL green, however, If your child want to be an ozian, there is plenty of time to change costumes from munchkinland to emerald city... Again, parents this is up to you...)  I am assuming everyone is in OZ, unless you email me back the opposite... It just allows your kids to be in one more number as a chorus person..
We are blocking:  
Page 37 - 42 (scene 8) MERRY OLD LAND OF OZ

Monday, October 20, 2014

PROGRESS WOOT WOOT

We are DEFINITELY making progress!!!!

Today we put together pages 20-37.  IT WAS SO FUN TO WATCH!!!  WOW.. How fun to see it coming together!!  

We ran a ton of pages, with both our casts, and without the vocal tracks... I have to say I was pretty impressed!!!  It was awesome.. a few hic-ups, but, my heavens it was our first time putting it all together!!  GO TEAM!! I'm so very proud of you guys!!

We are officially blocked from pages 1-37 (give or take a couple of songs for the leads and a scene or two to be blocked on Saturdays or at a later date)... 

Rehearsal on Saturday is listed below in the prior post from this week.. Please make sure you are there if you are listed... Lauren and Klara will be in their original casts!!  Klara Cast A 10:00-1:00... Lauren Cast B 1:00-4:00.  Longer rehearsal this time... Thanks for being awesome about it.

MAX STAPLES FAMILY: I know this is asking a TON from Max, however, he missed our first rehearsal where the first scenes were blocked...  and this Saturday Jedrik will be out of town, so, the opposite cast will be without Oz.  It is very difficult to block a scene if all the characters are not in it... Is there ANY possibility for Max to attend rehearsal from 10:00-4:00 to work in both casts?? 
He will learn the blocking from the day he missed last month, and will learn the new blocking for scenes in the Oz Castle... I will buy him pizza for lunch, but please send him with snacks to keep his tummy be filled and his mind alert and ready.  Please text or email me if this is a possibility... I may need to cancel a few leads if Max can't come all day Saturday.. I really need Oz....


  Next Monday!! EVERYONE WHO WAS AT REHEARSAL TODAY, PLEASE COME NEXT WEEK.   Leading Characters in both casts, that includes you.. (leads please memorize the scene before and after Emerald City)
 We are blocking Emerald City Stuff, but, also reviewing what we did today!! 


 IT IS SO FUN!!  I love that it's coming together!!!  I'm SUPER proud of everyone... It is such a huge undertaking and I'm amazed every rehearsal at these kids talents.... I have to remind myself sometimes that they are only in 5/6 grades! I MEAN WOW PEOPLE!!!


HUGE SHOUT OUT TO MRS. DONNA WINKLER!!!


MAN the kids were out of control today.. not sure why.. We were thinking it was because a holiday just ended. I hope this isn't the norm, because we have a TON of holidays coming up... 

Donna volunteers every week to help with crowd control.  I thought she was gonna lose some hair today, ha ha.. I'm pretty sure she gained a gray hair or two.  Donna you are WONDERFUL  I couldn't do this production without you!!
 Parents please speak with your kids (mostly boys, but some girls, so, just check in with your child) and ask them to please be more respectful to Miss Donna... If we lose her, I am doomed at these 62 child rehearsals.... Respect and QUIET is the key :)  DONNA YOU ROCK BABY!!!





A few costumes I have ordered for specific people have arrived DANIELLE SONTAGG... Email me please regarding this:  I have Liza's costume.. It is too big on her.. i need you to take it home and cut is like alligator teeth on the bottom of the dress.... Just make it fit.... This costume is yours to manipulate.  If you do not sew, you are not alone !!!! ha ha  I do not sew either ha ha... We have seamstresses in the sign up genius that are willing to help fit this to her body...

Same goes for all the other costumes I checked out and sent home

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOUR CHILD CAME HOME WITH A COSTUME: These costumes are yours for this production... Please feel free  to adjust and fit them to yhour child's body size...  EXCEPT THE TOTS... Those are as is.. I desparately need the flowers that go in the hair back.. I am in the process of making a hat forthese girls and need the flower...
The week after the show is over, I will expect these back "clean".  If they are dirty, please have them cleaned... 

I'm falling asleep typing this :)  Usually I can work til 3:00-4:00 but tonight I am tired and will sign off for now.. 

Have a WONDERFUL evening and THANK YOU EVERYONE!!! You truly are amazing!!!

See everyone on monday!!!
xoxo Jules

FREEZE FAMILY: Aubree mentioned she was free on Saturday, but sometimes our kids do not know what we parents have planned.  Is she free this Saturday???  Can she make her own cast rehearsal, and possibly switch if the Black's can bring Alexandra??  please email and let me know what her availability is this Saturday, October 11.
