Cast, Crew, Parents: this is it. With only a few hours remaining to stabilize queues, finish set and lighting fixtures, and coordinate dance numbers, our production of Anything Goes! is nearly ready! This is a proud achievement, as any, and should be celebrated by everyone. However, before we hit the stage and ready our costumes and make - up, there are a few, final concerns.
The set, particularly the state rooms / jail, are what is left before the entire S.S. American is complete (including some other final touches). While there may be limited time to join us backstage, we ask if anyone could spare time during their Choir classes or in between scenes / practices to help support the parents and students working tirelessly on construction. Any sort of help would be appreciated!
Make sure to plan out what actions need to be made before opening night! Check if you have all your costumes and props ready so you don't go out on stage unprepared. Address these questions with those respectfully in the costumes or properties departments.
The cast party is already underway and we have a lot of people bring a huge assortment of meals and desserts for the company! If you're at all interested, refer to the whiteboard backstage and note what you may (or may not) be able to bring on Sunday. As a reminder, the cast party will be held at Chris & Melody Baker's house after company strike! Check with the Anything Goes tab on location and other information.
Finally, on a personal note, I wish to apologize for any issues that have rose during the dress rehearsals. I'm known to constantly run all over the place and ensure hell and chaos hasn't broken loose, and often spill my irritation onto other people in the process. I want you to know that you're all a wonderful cast with a great sense of potential, and that though we've faced many trials and challenges in creating this show, it's going to be a grand and memorable one nonetheless. I wish you all the best of luck on stage.
Have any questions? What do you think of the outcome of the performance? Contact us on your thoughts about next year and what we can do to become a better community (if not the best already). We're open to hearing from the anyone, especially those who bring the magic from both on-stage and off-stage.
Best Wishes, and Bon Voyage!
