Last Minute Reminders

Alright, tomorrow is the big day!

A couple of reminders:

Dancers need to be at the school no later than 6:00pm Wednesday - Friday.

If they want to, they can come at 5:00 for a pre-performance warmup.

Parents, we are probably going to need a few extra volunteers.  Since you have to drop your kids off anyway, check in with us and see if we need extra help.  Specifically an extra backstage helper, ticket sellers, and maybe an extra costume helper may be needed.  All parents are expected to volunteer in some capacity.

Dancers need to arrive with hair and makeup done, clean tights, etc.  Wear a nude leotard, we don't want dancers changing in the bathroom.  Please make sure dancers with bangs have them neatly pulled back, and anyone wearing a bun is wearing a traditional/high bun with their hair SLICKED back, with NO PART (as discussed here).

If at all possible, no glasses (my daughter wears glasses (and needs them!) but has never had a problem performing without them).  And remember, no fingernail polish!

Dancers will not be allowed in the auditorium during the performance.  They need to remain in the backstage area.

Remember no eating or drinking in costume and NO food or drink in the auditorium.

Doors will open at 6:00.

Hopefully the roads are better tomorrow, but if not, obviously allow for extra time to get to the school so we don't have anyone arriving late.

See you there!


Tickets for the Nutcracker performances are now available HERE.

There is a $1 processing fee per ticket, so you will see the prices listed as $9/$6.

This gives you the chance to skip the ticket line and go straight to the auditorium door with your printed ticket.

Buying tickets online helps us know how many people to expect in the audience, and how many tickets we can sell at the door.

Remember that the preshow (youth choir groups) starts at 6:45pm, so you still need to be in your seats by 6:30.  We highly recommend getting there EARLY (doors open at 6:00pm).

Due to the popularity of this ballet, we suggest purchasing your tickets and arriving early to be seated.

Tickets at the door will still be available, on a first come, first serve basis.

Last Chance for ordering photos!

At dress rehearsal last night, there were some parents who were wondering if they could still order your child's individual or group photos.  The photographer, Natalee Cole, can still take orders TODAY (Tuesday) only, as the photos will be printed tomorrow morning.

All photos will be ready for pickup at the Wednesday performance.

If you would still like to order photos, the prices are:

5x7 Cast Photo = $10
8x10 Cast Photo = $15
Customized Collage = $20 (as shown above)
CD (Digital Images include individual, group, and cast photo) = $10
Email your order to Natalee directly at nataleecole73ATgmail(dotcom) and you can pay her Wednesday evening at the school before the performance (cash or check).
