WSS Rehearsal Update #1 5/7

Rehearsal Schedule:

Click on the link below to download the full rehearsal schedule:

WSS Rehersal Schedule

About the Schedule

This is preliminary schedule.  Please note that in a fast paced, challenging production like West Side Story we may need to make changes as the schedule progresses to make room to return to musical numbers or scenes that need more work.  Make sure to check the weekly blog update for the most up to date schedule for the week.

While we took conflicts into account when creating the schedule, we were not able to accommodate everyone’s conflicts.  If you find that you are called on a day when you have a conflict, when the day approaches, please contact Miss Ashley (for dances) or Miss Rebekah (for blocking or vocals) to discuss whether you will be able to make it up or if the production team thinks it best for you to sit out that number/scene.

Friday Dance Classes – Begin THIS Friday 5/11:

Dance classes are mandatory for all cast members, except Tony, Maria, Schrank, Krupke, and Doc who are not required, but still welcome to attend.  We will be working technique from the show in front of mirrors in a traditional studio dance class format.

Dance Class Times

Unlike other Friday Dance Classes where we group by level, we will be changing our grouping from week to week depending on the technique covered in class.  You will be called to a dance session by rehearsal group.  Dance Class schedule is outlined in the full rehearsal schedule.  Please see “this week’s schedule” section below for your dance class call this week.

To Register and Pay:

Dance class tuition is $50.  This is a private dance class so there is no link to register on our website.  Please bring $50 in cash or check to the first day of dance.  If you would like to pay via credit card, please contact Rachel@havenartsacademy.org before Friday.

There is no additional registration paperwork for dance.

Scholarships students who are unable to afford dance tuition must contact Rebekah before Friday’s class to request an additional dance class scholarship: rebekah@havenartsacademy.org

Dance Classes will take place at Legacy Dance Academy

730 S Allied Way
El Segundo, CA 90245

In the El Segundo Plaza by the Fish Grill

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

(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.

(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 rehearsal)

(3) Jewelry (remove and leave at home all earrings, necklaces, rings, as they are not a part of your costume)

(4) Painted nails

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 around 8:30-9:00 PM.

Parents

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

Tech Week Dinner

If you ordered a tech week dinner, please arrange to pick up your dinner during the following times:

Monday 4/3 4:30-5:15

Tuesday 4/4 4:30-5:15

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 Elementary Tech Week

Parents, your child must check out each night with Miss. Emily to insure that your costumes and props have been properly put away.  Please make sure you sign out so that we know you have picked up your child.

Sign-Out for Elementary Performances

Parents, please come backstage to sign your child out after each performance. You are welcome to take photos with friends and family in costume before changing back into your street clothes.

Backstage

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 one hour prior to curtain.  The backstage area will be re-opened to parents after the show.

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.
