Please be aware that each cast member will be given a set strike chore after their closing performance each weekend. Younger cast members will be given a short chore (5 min), teens will be asked to pitch in with a larger job (striking sets, carrying props, cleaning up costumes).
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.
Paupers ONLY: Bow Street Runner 1

There are NO conflicts during tech week. No exceptions. Please remember, you are part of a team and you let down your team when you aren’t present. If you miss a stage placement, clean up day, or dress rehearsal, you will not be permitted to perform.
Stuff to Bring
Please bring the following items to rehearsal. You may leave these items under your chair the entire week.
(1) Make-up Kit (foundation, blush, mascara, eye shadow, eye liner)
(2) Hair brush and bobby pins (we don’t share hairbrushes)
(3) Leotard or shorts and tank to wear under your costume for quick changes.
(4) A water bottle with a lid (no food and drink allowed near costumes, only water in a sealed container)
(5) Shoes and tights/socks (black) for performance
(6) Book or quiet activity for downtime
Stuff to Leave at Home
Please leave the following items at home.
(1) Valuables (anything you would be sad about if it gets lost or stolen)
(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 tech rehearsals or performances)
(3) Jewelry (remove and leave at home all earrings, necklaces, rings, as they are not a part of your costume)
(4) Painted nails (unless cleared with director)
The tough part about tech week is that we need to get through the entire production each night. For Cue to Cue, we will do our best to end by 10:00 PM. For dress rehearsals, we will do our best to end by 9:30 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 can call when the rehearsal is finished.
Feel free to watch dress rehearsals and use the opportunity to take photos. Reminder that there is no videography or flash photography during performances.
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 to find you.
Sign-Out – Tech Week
You must check out each night with Kelsea (Orphan Ensemble, Feature Dancers) or Kindra (all other roles) 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.
Sign-Out for Performances – Grades 5 and under
Parents, you will be required to physically sign out your child. Please come to the stage right backstage area to pick up your child. Please feel free to take your child to greet friends and family in costume. Just make sure to change before you leave the building.
Sign-Out for Performances – Grades 6 and up
After the show, older cast members will be released in costume to visit with friends and family. Once a cast member is released, they are no longer under the care of Haven staff members.
Parents, family members, and friends will not be allowed backstage during performances. Parent volunteers for each performance will be given a badge. Parents, you are welcome to help your child with costumes and make up until 30 minutes prior to curtain. The backstage area will be re-opened to parents after the show.
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.
