Chocolate Factory Opening Soon...

Dear Parents,                                                                                                

We are coming up to the end of rehearsals of Willy Wonka! I’m very excited about what the show is becoming and am so proud of the kids’ growth these past few months. I know we all are looking forward to the final performances in May.  I wanted to take a moment to say Thank You for all your patience, flexibility, time, and support during these past few months and for the upcoming weeks ahead.                            

Heads up on a few things: 

 Tech week. The parents who were involved last year can attest to this; tech week is a very hectic, intense time.  It involves long hours spent by: the kids, myself, Jackie (choreography), Rob Woolsen (lights and sounds), Mike Skeirsh (sets), and all the parents who are volunteering in order to make this production memorable. My goal is to utilize this time with the kids as best I can.  Adding extra rehearsals or going over rehearsal time will NOT happen this year.  The kids might experience some long periods of sitting and waiting, but these moments should be spent doing homework, running lines, etc. No wasted time. The FAA and myself are working diligently to get as much accomplished before tech week begins.  If you are volunteering your time and helping during these upcoming weeks, Thank You!!!  Every extra helping hand is very much appreciated as it makes this the best experience it can be! 

The last 3 weeks of rehearsal: The primary focus of the last 3 weeks of rehearsal involves run-throughs of the 1st half and 2nd half of the play. This time is precious so please limit your child leaving early for any outside appointments, etc. 

“Practice, practice, practice!”:  I need your help parents!  Please have your kids practice their lines, dances, and music every day.  The more they practice at home, the faster rehearsals will go, and the more confident they will be when the final performances begin.  You get what you put in!

Enjoy Spring Break!

Daniel Behnke

Director

Costume (& other) Reminders

A friendly reminder that TOMORROW (Tuesday) is Costume Check. The kids need to bring their costumes so they can get the "OK" or see what adjustments are needed.  

Also, for Thursday's rehearsal, after noon dismissal they should go straight to the lunchroom. ** BRING A LUNCH INCLUDING A DRINK. ** (Milk is not available that day).  To allow time for lunch, rehearsal will run untll 2:30 rather than 2:15.

Lastly, if you haven't responded with sizes, please do so ASAP.  We may or may not need them for costumes, but we DO need them for Willy Wonka T-shirts. Thanks!

Wonka Workshop Success!!!

This weekend the Fine Arts Association conducted a Primary Grade Workshop for grades 1 - 4 that was a HUGE success!  All the "Little Oompa Loompas" did a great job in their Mini Drama, Glee, Dance, Painting and Props classes led by the Wonka Cast and Crew Members. 

The "Wonka Workshop" gave the younger students a chance to see what the older students experience preparing for the Spring Musical.  They even created some of the props that will be part of the show as well as painted some of the background scenery! 

THANK YOU to all the Parents, Cast & Crew for your Time, Treasures and Talents in order to make this possible!!!

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!
