Great job on school day shows, everyone! I heard so many rave reviews from the audience as they were exiting the theater today. It’s hard to believe we have just two shows left!
Here’s some info for this weekend–
Friday, March 1st: 7pm show:
Call time is 6pm for a 7pm show. Please be on time! Parent committees (publicity, concessions, box office) may arrive as early at 5:45pm to set up in the lobby. These committees should be ready for business by 6:15pm. Tech, Props, Backstage, Green Room, Costumes and Hair and Makeup are welcome to come in as early as 5:45 and set up their areas. Students who are coming early must remain with their parent until 6pm. At that time, they should check in with Gracie in the lobby and go to the green room.
The show run time is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes (including a 20 minute intermission and a 20 minute meet and greet time). If you are dropping your student off and not staying at the theater on a show day, please plan to pick them up 1 hour and 45 minutes after the show start time. (For example, Friday’s show is at 7pm, so you would drop them off at 6pm and return at 8:45pm).
Saturday, March 2nd: 2pm show:
Call time is 1pm for a 2pm show. Please be on time! Parent committees (publicity, concessions, box office) may arrive as early as 12:45 to set up in the lobby. These committees should be ready for business by 1:15pm. Tech, Props, Backstage, Green Room, Costumes, and Hair and Makeup are welcome to come in as early as 12:45 to set up their areas. Students who are coming early must remain with their parents until 1pm. At that time, they should check in with Gracie and go to the green room.
When parking at the theater this weekend, please use the rear parking lot (yellow area on map below) or street parking so that the auditorium parking lot (blue area) is open for patrons.
On Saturday afternoon, immediately following the 2pm show, we will begin Strike. All parents serving on a committee should plan to stay and help.
Students will head to the green room and lighted room immediately following meet and greet. All of their personal belongings must be gathered into their show boxes, and boxes taken to the lobby area or to parents’ vehicles. Students, please consider helping out those assigned to cleaning duties.
Laundry committee will direct students where to put costumes according to color/type.
Scripts are available to purchase for $15. If you do not want to purchase your script, it must be turned in. Scripts being returned must have pencil marks completely erased. We’ll have a box to return scripts in the Green Room. If you do not return your script, a $15 charge will be assigned to your Journey family account.
Consider bringing scripts (and an eraser) to the theater on Friday and have your student keep them in their show box so they will be at the theater and ready for turn in on Saturday!
Sets will immediately begin loading into the trailer. Any additional help with this will be greatly appreciated.
All committees will remove all items from the theater. Items that were taken from the warehouse need to be returned to the warehouse and put in their correct location. Please do not just dump items inside the door and expect others to return them to their proper places.
All Committee Chairs should turn in budget sheets along with receipts and remaining funds (and cash boxes) to Shannon.
Box Office, Refreshments and Show Chair may turn in their paperwork the week following strike, to the Journey Office.
Thank you, everyone, for all of your hard work and dedication to this production of James and the Giant Peach, Jr! It has been a pleasure working with each of you and getting to know you. I look forward to working with you again on a future show!
