Party Girl Hair

Party Girl Moms - start thinking about your girl's hair for the party scene.  All of them will need ringlets with the front pulled back.  Here are a few examples from other Nutcrackers.

This blog has some information and photos of good ringlets vs. poor ringlets.

Getting great ringlets can be tricky!  More information coming!

Parent Help Needed: Building a Sleigh and Painting

We are in need of someone to make a sleigh.  One side needs to have a big snowflake or 3-5 good sized snowflakes on it.  The other side needs to have  candy on it.  Perhaps lollipops and red and white mints etc.   The budget is $50.  It does need to roll and turn.  Think of the big Home Depot carts that you put lumber on.  It also needs to have a something for Clara to hold onto.
We are also in need of some painters to paint a toy box and possibly the sleigh.

Anyone who can help us with this - leave a comment, or talk to Angela ASAP!  Thank you!

Required costume pieces

Just a heads up, so that if you don't already have these, you have time to find them:

All boys, soldiers, and mice will need BLACK ballet slippers (not jazz shoes).  Here are some for $13.50 with free shipping.  Used is fine if you can find/borrow them!

All girls need to wear a nude-colored leotard under their costume.

All girls who wear bras will need a DANCE BRA  (click link to see example).  You can't wear regular/white bras under your costumes.  The dance bras have clear straps and can be changed so that they work with all costumes.  Angela can put in an order for these - if you are interested, sign up this weekend at rehearsal.  They will run about $14.

And of course, just a reminder that all girls  will need new pink tights (no runs, holes) for the performance.

Party Scene Costume Fitting Date

Party girls and boys, mark your calendar for October 5th at 10am. This will be a mandatory meeting to try on costumes for your scene.  You will need to meet at BROADWAY ATTIRE (address coming soon).
