We're getting closer to tech week and performance days.  That means keep practicing! All cast should be off book. Please practice the songs that you are singing with the sing along CD that was given to you.  Practice each song at least 5 times everyday. Review Dance steps at home everyday as well (so you can do it in your sleep)  The more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it! 

I’ve added exact times to this call week to help sort out any confusion. Please double check your call times for either the lunch room or music room.  Before each rehearsal, all called cast is to meet in the lunch room for a pre rehearsal meeting.  Any questions please let me know. 

Thank you very much!

Wonka Call Sheet for Feb 18th, 19th & 20th

Hi Folks,

We are switching up the rehearsal flow a bit.  Starting this week we will be focusing on Vocal and Dance work Wednesday and Thursday in two spaces, the Lunch Room and the Music Room. We will work on 2 songs per day with Mr. Morz (as seen below) and 1 to 2 dance numbers with Miss Jackie per day (as seen below)  If you are called but not working your song for dancing or singing till the last hour of rehearsal, I still want you there at the start of rehearsal in the Lunch Room.  You can work on homework or your lines while your waiting your turn to rehearse. You may not leave early from rehearsal unless I approve by email from parents through Mrs. O'Connor.  I have also added kids to become Oopma Loompas and Cooks so check your new casting! I've broken up the Oompa Loompas into two groups, don't worry this just means you'll be highlighted more for your specific songs.  Thanks and see you then!
