(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 10:00 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.

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 Kindra 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.

How do I sell my 10 pre-sale tickets?

Each family is required to sell AT LEAST 10 tickets.

What if I want to have hard copy tickets to sell?

When you purchase your tickets, you will select how you want your tickets delivered. The company can mail you hard copies of tickets if you would like. You can then sell these tickets to your family and friends.  You can also choose “print at home” and print out your tickets to sell to family and friends.

What if I need to exchange a ticket?

You will not be able to exchange a ticket through Brown Paper Tickets. You must wait until on-line ticket sales are shut down one week prior to opening night. Tickets will be available for exchange at specifically scheduled times during tech week.

What if I have a technical problem purchasing tickets on-line?

You will need to contact Brown Paper Tickets. Haven cannot solve any technical issues for you.

They can call Brown Paper Tickets instead. All transactions can be done over the phone as well: 1-800-838-3006.
