Anne McCullough Kelly and Chandra Clark extend a heartfelt thank you to all who auditioned for Wizard of Oz last week. Eighty courageous people auditioned and the great amount of talent made casting this show very challenging for the production team!
Please contact Anne at firstname.lastname@example.org to accept your role in this production. Also, please inform Anne of any additional schedule conflicts that may have developed since auditions. We only have seven weeks to rehearse so we need to confirm a rehearsal schedule quickly.
Our first rehearsal will be on Tuesday, May 30 at 6:30pm. We would like the entire cast to attend the first hour of the rehearsal as we will use this time to hand out scripts, instructions regarding accessing and using rehearsal music tracks, and get acquainted with each other. We also request that a parent or caregiver for each child in the ensemble also attend to receive these instructions as well. We rely on parent and caregiver support for the children in our productions and are grateful for your involvement.
We are also organizing teams for several production crews including backstage running crew, properties, costumes, make-up, and hair design. Please contact Anne or Denise Gregory (email@example.com) if you are interested in volunteering for any of these production crews.
Thank you everyone! We look forward to creating a fabulous production with you!
