Please leave the following items at home.

(2) IPod, Game Boy, DS, or other electronic games (cell phones should be on silent and kept out of sight, no texting or games on your cell during rehearsal)
(3) Jewelry (remove and leave at home all earrings, necklaces, rings, unless they are period appropriate and have been approved by your director)
(4) Painted nails – unless they are period appropriate

Ending Time
The tough part about tech week is that we need to get through the entire production each night.  We will do our best to end by 10:30 PM. Please feel free to text the Haven Phone for an update on ending times or come early and watch the end of the rehearsal.  Your child will call when the rehearsal is finished.

Parents
Feel free to watch dress rehearsals and use the opportunity to take photos.

*Video and Photo Warning*
Photos and videos will not be allowed to be taken during the show. Haven Academy does not have the right legal rights to let the audience take pictures or record the performance. Haven will be recording one professional archival recording of the production, which we are permitted to sell to cast families only. More instructions on how to purchase a performance video coming next week!

Sign-In
Please sign in at the side glass doors.  If you do not sign in, we will assume you are not present and our stage manager will call you to find you.

Sign-Out for Tech Week
You must check out each night with Abigail to insure that your costumes and props have been properly put away.  Please make sure you sign out so that we know your parents have picked you up.

Backstage
Parents, family members, and friends will not be allowed backstage during performances.  Parent volunteers for each performance will be given a badge.  The backstage area will be re-opened to parents after the show. Friends not in the show or on tech crew are not permitted backstage at any time.

Costumes
Costumes are never to leave the building.  You should always change back into your street clothes after each rehearsal or show.  Please leave all your costumes, shoes, and props here at the church – even if it’s something that you personally own.

Mics
If you are a lead and wearing a body mic, please treat it with care.  If you damage a mic, you will need to pay for the damages.  You are not to remove your own mic!  At the end of each performance and rehearsal please see T LeFort for removal.

For Tuesday and Wednesday we are asking those who are wearing a body mic at the start of the show to be in costume, hair, and make-up at 5:00 PM.  Doors will be open as early as 3:00 PM should you wish to get there early.  If you are wearing mic later in the show, please see T LeFort when you arrive at 5:00 PM for mic switch instructions.

Below is a list of cast members who are wearing a body mic.  If your name is listed first, you are wearing a mic at the top of the show.  If your name is listed second or third, you will be switching into a mic later in the show.

A reminder that parent volunteer sign ups are now closed.  If you did not sign up for any volunteer slots, our office will follow up with a bill so that you can pay your opt out fee.  If you receive a bill and you believe it to be an error (i.e. you sign up for your volunteer jobs), please contact Claire at: claire@havenartsacademy.org

Please make sure to contact Claire if you need to make any changes to your volunteer slots.  Please do not remove your name from a job without contacting our office first.  Removing your name without contacting our office will count as a “no show” and you will be billed for your missed volunteer slot.  We count on having a certain number of volunteers for each work day and performance and hire additional help based on our sign ups.
