I truly couldn't be prouder of the show we have put together in the past 9 weeks. Thank you SO much for all of your hard work. It is definitely paying off- WE HAVE AN AMAZING SHOW!!! Thank you for being GREAT on a tedious tech rehearsal. Today went so smooth- I'm very grateful for that. :)
I can't wait to see it all come together at the dress rehearsals tomorrow and Tuesday. Remember to keep smiling and being in character in every scene you're in! We are doing full make-up and hair tomorrow. Come right after school so we can start the run exactly at 4:30. Make-up will be done in the directed study room next to mine.
Keep spreading the word! we want to fill the house at every show.
You're all the top! #superproudteacherstatus
The first time we will be doing make-up and hair is on Monday. The dress rehearsal starts at 4:30, so please arrive at 2:30 to start getting ready.
We have lots of student volunteers for make-up and hair, so with their help it will be great!
Here's the info about make-up and hair- HAVE THIS STUFF BY MONDAY AT 2:30!!!
Hair style: parted on the side and gelled
Make-up and hair stuff to buy/bring in:
A base make up if you want (However I will provide some that you can use)
REMEMBER: ALL SAILORS NEED WHITE UNDERSHIRT TO WEAR UNDER SAILOR SHIRTS.
ALSO, if you're in a suit, please bring in a button down. It can be white, but doesn't need to be. something that would go with your suit. We have ties you can wear unless you want to bring your own.
Hair styles: Choose 1:
A) Low, neat bun with side part.
B) Low, neat bun with side part and finger waves.
C) Hair curled with big curls, side part, and front pieces pinned back.
Angels- you need to do option C. Please all use the same side for the part.
Erma- also option C ish
Purser, Kira, Demetra- option A
Everyone else- if you have questions ask me tomorrow
Make-up and hair stuff to buy/bring in:
A base make-up that matches your skin tone. We'll have a couple at the school but it looks better if you have your own.
Mascara OR Fake Eyelashes (yes for Reno, Erma, Hope? Angels and anyone else who wants to) If you need help with these I'll help. Make sure you get glue.
Hair elastics! Bring extras!
Bobby pins! and hair pins if you are going to have a bun.
Hair net that matches your hair if you are going to have a bun!
Spray bottle of water if you need this
Curling irons if you have them!
Hairspray and gel (we'll have some, but feel free to bring your own)
NO NAIL POLISH UNLESS I AUTHORIZED YOU TO WEAR IT.
TASTEFUL JEWELRY THAT WILL GO WITH YOUR COSTUME ONLY.
Remember your cast party permission slips!!!!
You guys are the best! Super happy (and tired) right now :D
Here are the notes from today. READ THEM ALL! Even if you don't think it applies to you, it might. Also, if you don't understand something (Jess and I can be confusing) ask us on Sunday!
We are getting so close to opening night and I'm getting really excited. As promised, here's the post about what you want to be getting for the rest of your costume.
Guys: All in Black dress shoes with black socks!
Girls: Character shoes are fine (Tan or black). Or, a comfortable heel that looks like one of these: http://www.pinterest.com/anythinggoes201/shoes/
If you don't have heels or character shoes, plain flats will do.
What to wear under your costume:
Guys: if you are ever in a sailor costume, please wear WHITE underneath. having a white undershirt would also be a great idea. (you will want to get multiples of all of these things- remember we have 2 dress rehearsals AND 4 shows.)
Girls: Please refrain from bright colors. TAN is the best (to match your skin tone), white and black are the next best but tan is better. If you're wearing a skirt or short dress you should wear tan dance tights, like ones made by Danskin or Capezio. You can buy these at Patterson's (Back Bay) Dancewear in Burlington. If you're wearing something that strapless, you want to either go with clear straps or strapless underneath.
Guys- To be announced
Girls- Mascara OR Fake-eyelashes (a definite for Reno, Erma, Angels, maybe Hope), bright RED lipstick, dark eyeliner, blush, and err on the side of natural eyeshadows. Anything that goes on your eyes or lips you must buy. You are welcome to use your own base make-up but we should have some if you don't have your own. There's lots of makeup pictures herehttp://www.pinterest.com/anythinggoes201/costumes-hair-makeup/
REMEMBER: NEXT WEEK (MON AND TUES) REHEARSAL WILL GO UNTIL 7:30pm!
Everyone is called everyday from 3-6!
Thursday's rehearsal MAY go past 6. More info on that later.

Hello all! I hope everyone had a great vacation.
I'm excited to get back to rehearsals for Anything Goes! We have 2 and a half weeks until opening night, and it's time to put the finishing touches on this great show! Over vacation, the crew was hard at work building and painting the set. Some leads came in and we finished choreographing their stuff and we ran their song/dance numbers. I went thrift shopping and costume shopping, and I made a lot of props! Things are getting very exciting. I hope you all found time to practice your stuff so that we can start adding the icing on the cake to the show!
This coming week is all about finishing some spots that need to be finished/fixed, cleaning up things that aren't working, and running things. The following week we will be doing runs of the show with props, set pieces, and a few costumes so that we can be super prepared when we add lights, sound, and the orchestra during tech week!
Below is this week's schedule. Please note that after this week, (starting Monday, March 3) Full Cast will be called every day until closing night!
