6. No students in costumes are allowed in the audience unless they are completely covered up.
7. No audience member may leave his or her seat while someone is performing. Please wait until the act is over. This is to show respect for the child performing. Thank You!
8. Your child is asked to remain for the entire show. We ask that everyone stay until the finale so every child feels special with a full audience. The recitals are approximately 2 ½ hours long. It is mandatory that all B.S.E. must stay until the end.
9. Following the finale, all children must be picked up in the student dressing area. There will be volunteer baby-sitters provided in the dressing area for the children.
10. Make-up should be applied to your child: foundation, heavy blush, red lipstick (or pink for little children), eye shadow, and mascara. This is needed because the bright lights have a tendency to make the children look very pale.
11. Relax and enjoy the show. Please keep in mind that all recital rules are Miss Cindy's. Please follow them. Please be kind and considerate to all the volunteers helping with the recitals. They are enforcing the rules made by Miss Cindy. This is a fun and memorable event for your child. All the children worked hard towards this day so let's make it a day they will truly enjoy. Thank You!
