"The Grinch"- Information

Christmas is just around the corner and it’s time for our Christmas Concert. This year we are excited to present “The Grinch.”

Tickets will go on Sale at the studio on Sat. November 2, from 8-10:30. They are $10 a piece.

• Our performance is at Manatee High School, Saturday, December 7th @ 2:00

Dress Rehearsal is @ Manatee High, Saturday, Dec 7th from 9:30-12:30. All dancers will arrive at 9:30 and we will rehearse the Nativity. Then we will rehearse the show in numerical order. You may leave after your last number is finished rehearsing. (Please bring a cell phone or use mine.)

Cast call is as close to 1:00 as possible. I realize the last few numbers rehearsing will need to get a quick bite to eat or bring lunch (to be eaten outside)

• When you return please arrive in full STAGE make-up with your hair done.

Please remember, there is absolutely no food or drink in the auditorium and dressing rooms. This includes the audience as well.

We’ll use costumes from last year’s recital, or, will be creating costumes. Borrowed costumes & nativity costumes must be returned immediately following the performance. If I have asked to borrow your outfit, it would be helpful if you please drop it by the studio during your next class. This will enable me to see if I have enough of the proper sizes. I will transport them to the show & home. (NAME inside)

Following the Christmas Concert, there will be regular classes for the older classes that will not be performing at the retirement homes until December 21. We will be traveling with the younger classes to the retirement homes, so younger classes will not meet the week of Dec. 16-20.

Christmas Vacation is December 22. December tuition is 3 weeks.

Classes will resume on Jan 6, 2020.

If you pay full December tuition I will credit it towards spring recital costumes.

Just a reminder, the Spring Concert is May 30th – Rehearsal is May 29th.

Thank you in advance and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

Christmas Helpers

I am willing to help with

_____ Handing out Programs/ Collecting tickets
