Dear "Pride and Prejudice" Cast and Crew Parents,
First of all, we're sure we are all in agreement that the kids are doing a phenomenal job up on stage and behind the scenes! This fantastic show would not be possible without your support. Thank you for all your efforts!
Second, some of the information in this email may already be familiar to you--but we wanted to put the details about show weekend in one place! Please reach out with any questions or concerns by responding to this email.
Please note that the Richeys are the source for information about call times and other technical details related to the performances. These are just some "social" details that not all families may be aware of.
Friday night--Montecellos: As you might know, the sudden closing of TGI Friday's has changed the tradition of the kids going there post-show (and eliminated our fundraiser!) Instead, the kids have decided that they want to go to Montecellos on Babcock Boulevard after the Friday show. This is definitely not a mandatory activity, but a number of cast and crew members will be going. Parents can drop off, or stay and get their own table...it's entirely your choice. If you are dropping your child off, please make sure they have cash and understand the practice of tipping. They will probably be finished around 11:30-12:00, based on previous years' experience.
Saturday afternoon--break between shows. There will be a break of a couple hours between the Saturday matinee and the Saturday evening show. Some of the kids pack a lunch and stay at the school. Some leave, and either go home or get food locally. This is entirely up to your family! But it's a very long day so please make sure your child has something to eat and drink. We want everyone to feel good and have energy for the evening show!
Saturday night--cast party. Following the Saturday performance, the cast party will be held at Christ Lutheran Church, 157 Peony Avenue (across the street from Highcliff Elementary). We will be serving pizza, chips and other snacks, and bottled water. Since the kids won't be arriving until 10:30 pm, we think a reasonable end time is 12:30 am. If picking your child up at 12:30, please feel free to pitch in and help clean up! The party is very low-key and we are not decorating, but we do want to leave the church the way we found it. Thanks to the Margo family for securing this space for us!
Again, if you have any questions about any of the activities this weekend, please respond to this email--or find Cindy Fusco or Maureen Pearson in the lobby.
Thanks again for all the support and volunteer hours you are dedicating to this show. It is greatly appreciated!
