Tech Rehearsal this Sunday, November 26

The Scrooge Tech Rehearsal is this Sunday, November 26 for all on-stage speaking parts and all technical/backstage personnel.

(All on-stage non-speaking personnel are not needed on Sunday.)

Lunch will be served immediately after second service for those involved in the rehearsal.

We expect the rehearsal will take most of the afternoon. Those that have speaking parts should be prepared to endure long stretches of waiting. (Bring a book. If you are using an electronic device to entertain yourself, please have your headphones as well.) If there is time, we encourage those with speaking parts to rehearse their lines in another room.

This begins the last 2-week stretch of Scrooge rehearsals. EVERYONE is needed for Monday’s rehearsal, which begins promptly at 7pm.

Happy Thanksgiving! (Get your rest…you’re going to need it)

Happy Thanksgiving!

There are no rehearsals on Tuesday or Thursday (or Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Saturday for that matter.) This is the traditional Scrooge Thanksgiving Break from rehearsal…though our technical and behind-the-scenes people are still hard at work.

Big thanks to Carla Mueller, Alissa Gilbert and Rachel Porter for guiding us through the last few weeks of choreography-intensive rehearsals. We’ve updated the position charts on the choreography page.

The focus now shifts to getting everyone ready for the performances…which are less than 18 days away!

The Scrooge Full Technical Rehearsal is this Sunday, November 26, immediately after second service. EVERYONE WITH A SPEAKING PART is required to be present. Also, all backstage, stage crew and technical personnel are required as well. The goal of this rehearsal is to work out all the technical and stage crew issues so that we are able to go forward with rehearsals beginning Monday, November 27. That’s why it’s important for everyone with a speaking part to be present. (You might be doing a lot of sitting around…so please bring something to occupy yourself until we get to you.)

The all-important last two weeks of rehearsal for EVERYONE begins on Monday, November 27.

One correction to the letter about makeup you may have received. Make-up kits are an optional purchase…however, wearing stage makeup is mandatory. This means that if you don’t order your own kit, or one for your family, you will be sharing the general makeup with all those that didn’t order makeup. (Many people like to have their own.) This is stage makeup, which will differ from makeup you normally use.

To repeat, wearing makeup on-stage is mandatory for women and men on-stage.

Gentry Haffa, our Makeup Director, will be at rehearsal on November 14 to receive your payment along with your order.
