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
