DRESS REHEARSAL RULES

1.     Only ONE parent per student will be permitted to attend dress rehearsal.

2.     Photos and videos may ONLY be taken at dress rehearsal.  No cameras or photos taken on cell phones are permitted at the recital.

3.     Please be prompt.

4.     We will start with the finale, which all students must participate in.  After the finale, your child is permitted to sit with you in the audience, rehearsal night only, to watch the show.  Five acts before your number, you must report to the student area.  After the finale, we will carry on with act one, and proceed through to the end of the show.  After we rehearse your child's act, we ask that you please leave the rehearsal to lessen the confusion.  ***Please note:  All students report to the student area the day of the show, NOT THE AUDIENCE.***

5.     No gum, no nail polish, no jewelry, NO UNDERWEAR with costumes.  Please remove all jewelry for safety and lighting reasons.  All jewelry will be collected backstage when worn at the rehearsal and recital and could risk getting lost.  Backstage staff is not responsible for any lost items.

6.     No food or drink is permitted in the auditorium or backstage. This will help to keep the school beautiful if we all abide by this rule.

7.     No smoking is permitted on any of the school grounds.

8.     Names should be written in all costumes and shoes.

9.     All belongings must be taken home after the rehearsal and recital.

10.     During the rehearsals tables will be set up outside the auditorium with food. You may eat in the lobby area only. We are fortunate to have this beautiful new high school.  Please help us to keep it clean by putting trash in the proper containers.

11.     ALL CHILDREN MUST ATTEND THE DRESS REHEARSAL IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE RECITAL.  NO EXCEPTIONS!


RECITAL RULES

1.     All students must report to the dressing room area ½ hour before show time.  

2.     ABSOLUTELY NO CAMERAS OR VIDEOS will be permitted in the school.  Anyone seen with a camera or video will be asked by security to leave school property.  This rule must be strongly enforced so the flash doesn't upset a child and no person's view is obstructed by someone standing.  Please be considerate of people watching the recitals.

3.     No gum, jewelry, nail polish, NO UNDERWEAR with costumes.  Jewelry will be removed for the recital.

4.     No smoking is permitted on any of the school grounds or in the dressing areas.

5.     No food or drink is permitted in the auditorium. Concession stand is open for light snacks only.

6.     All students must be brought into the dressing room in full costume, with make-up on and hair done.

7.     No students in costumes are allowed in the audience unless they are completely covered up.

8.     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!

9.     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 hours long. IT IS MANDATORY THAT ALL B.S.E. MUST STAY UNTIL THE END.

10.     Following the finale, all children must be picked up in the student dressing area.

11.     There will be volunteer baby-sitters provided in the dressing area for the children.

12.     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.

13.     Relax and enjoy the show.

Please keep in mind that all rehearsal and 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!
