Here is the schedule for tomorrow, I am also working on getting the final Tech Week Schedule all finalized and hope to have that out to you tonight. I will also have several sign ups for specific times during the next 2 weeks going out, we will need a lot of helpers to do this all, so please sign up to help, also if you have teenagers, nieces, nephews, cousins, whatever, we will take help from everyone.
If you haven't heard Mr Burton has been very sick, he is slowly getting better, but he is in need of help to manage the backstage and direct the Ninjas, please reach out to me if this is something that you can help with.
For "make-up" for the show, there are extra rules in place due to covid, and all of our actors will be masked (these are being provided by costumes) so there is not a lot that will be seen as far as faces go, but the expectation is that the students and/or their families (parents) are responsible for applying their own make-up. They are responsible for providing their own supplies including makeup, hairspray, curling irons and hair brushes. Sharing anything has been strictly stated as a violation of district Covid protocols. You can certainly do their hair too if you want, we're just going for a 70s-80s rock and roll look. There will be volunteers here to help with hair as needed.
Strap in, there will be a lot of information coming at you in the next few days, please ask questions if you need, sign up to help out and have fun!! It's a stressful ride at the end, but it's so worth it when it all comes together.
