Performance Calendar

Here is a link to the Performance Calendar I have created which shows when and where we are performing. Anything highlighted in yellow on the calendar has been booked and is confirmed.   Gray days are no performance days (not enough cast available).  White days have not been confirmed or are still open for booking.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14kxpA3L46PwWBoiGlHRmCXcicqGLCIEgOPT8fK3fD3s/edit#gid=0

Scroll down to see the addresses of each location.

Cast lists will be added once they have been decided.  Only the first few performances have cast lists decided so far.

Please check this link often to see what gets added to the schedule.  I will always move it to the top of the callboard posts whenever I have made a change to it.  But after 12 hours, if there is another post, it will move down the page.

Once I confirm dates with my Host Contact Committee parents, I will add them, along with their contact info. to the list.  These will be the parents that cast members, sets and tech will check in with upon arrival.  They will contact the host at the location to determine where to set up, where tech will plug into, etc.

If you see any errors and have questions, do not hesitate to reach out!  h.bode@journeytheater.org


Saturday Rehearsal – Important

Everyone is to wear their costumes to rehearsal on Saturday, all pieces and shoes that you provide along with any costume items that were sent home from rehearsal.

It is very important to wear your mic belt under your costume, along with unders so when we pull up shirts/dresses to attach the microphones everyone remains covered.

This is how you will come to every performance.

Headbands, hats, suspenders, and costume items that are shared will be transported along with sets/tech to each performance.

Please see the attached photo of how the mic belt is supposed to be worn under your costume.

It is important for the pocket to open UP, so that the mic pack can be dropped in and sit inside it.

 

 


Costumes!

Costume needs are listed below for each character.  The costumes committee will provide items as noted, and parents will be providing clothing and shoes as listed.  If there is a problem aquiring a costume item that is the family responsibility, please let me know and we will see how we can help.

Students MUST arrive to each performance they are scheduled for in their costumes, and wearing their mic belts (which they will be provided).  Certain costume pieces (apron, crown, bunny ears, gloves, etc.) will be shared and kept with sets or tech so they are on site for each performance.

The Costume Committee will be bringing items to rehearsal on Wednesday or Thursday for actors to try on.  I will let you know which day very soon.  On that day, cast members will need to come to rehearsal wearing unders (tank top and shorts that keep actors modestly covered) so they may change quickly in the room.  If actors already have costume items that they are providing (jeans, t-shirts, tights, etc.) please wear those to rehearsal that day (and depending on what your costume is, then you may not need unders if you come in your own things that don’t need changing out of).

Cole would like to do a run through in costume on Saturday, July 2, so all costume items must be aquired by then.

There are no specifics for hair and makeup.  If a cast member would like to wear their hair a certain way or wear makeup (draw on whiskers as Rabbit, for example) please come with the hair and makeup done that way to rehearsal on Saturday, July 2.

Let me know if you have any questions!

For those who need access to the warehouse (costumes, props, tech) I have a warehouse key that you may check out from me or keys can be checked out from the office.

I will send more detailed information regarding your specific committee to your email no later than Saturday.

Thank you!

Scripts

Cast members will receive their scripts at rehearsal this Thursday.

You may choose to purchase the script for $15. If you elect to do that, your student may mark in the script as it will belong to them.

If you choose not to purchase the script, all marks must be erased out of the script before returning it at the end of July.  If you elect not to purchase the script, it is recommended that your student bring a notebook to each rehearsal in which to take down notes given by the director.

All scripts that are not returned within the last week of performances in July will have the $15 fee added to their Journey account.

Let me know if you have any questions!
