4.1: April 14-18
LETTER FROM Mr. Nelson
Hello Mr. Thompson and Mr. Levear:
As I mentioned to you before, this Friday is very critical time for the show — Here are some things I’d love you announce to the class:
1) all parts (except narrators and anyone at the “anchor” table) need to be memorized. You may bring your script on stage for Friday to look at – but do not use it if your character speaks from center-stage. Starting Monday – no scripts on stage.
2) Black pants or skirts — My wife (Susan) and I have more than enough outfits for everyone – BUT – we have often found that some students, if they have a pair of solid black pants or skirt – would like to wear their own. This is fine with us — but you MUST bring it with you on Friday to be put into your bag.
3) Costuming — Mrs. Nelson will call you down for costuming either by groups (i.e. Hornbooks, Compromise, Pilgrims, etc) or individually.
4) For parents — we would love to have 2-4 parent volunteers (if possible) meet us at 10:30am (I’m assuming we can get into the auditorium at 10:30) – and help unload, and then help in the morning (11-12:05) with distributing costumes.
5) For teachers — I will also bring the flags/liberty bell backdrop on Friday — we may be able to get it up during the lunch time if we can get a large ladder (I think we found that a 10′ worked). We also have the banner for the front of the stage.
