Please do your children's hair and makeup before each performance, as best as possible.
For hair and makeup, we ask that you send your child's hairbrush and any special makeup they will need, with them to performances, so we can use them if needed. We will have some makeup there for touch up, and scene changes etc. We will not be doing a make-up/class like last year. If you need help with hair and makeup watch YouTube tutorials, ask a friend or neighbor to help, and if you’re struggling get here by 5pm for help.
*EVERYONE: Please have your child shower each night/morning and wear deodorant because we’ve rented the costumes and we’re in proximity with one another.
Boy's Hair (Edwardian Era)
Girls Hair (Edwardian Era)- be sure you know your child's group
In addition to the small hair + makeup committee (4 people) we'll have 2 moms/sisters in the girls dressing room, and 2 dads in the boys dressing room to supervise.
* *If you could volunteer to be in the dressing rooms, that would be excellent! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org because we still need Male Dressing Room Volunteers. For the safety of our students and parents having 2 parents or more parents per room ensures that everyone feels safe and comfortable, and it’s fun to have a parent to talk to and get to know- we can’t do this without your help so, THANK YOU!
Please email with any questions: Gaylynn Whitehead
Your students have been so awesome to work with! We have been so impressed by how on task they are and how quick they are to pay attention. Because of how great they have been, we are making calendar changes. We are mostly changing how long they need to be here. Please note that most rehearsals now go till 4:30 instead of 5:30. Effective today.
The Chitty Chitty Bang Bank WJH Musical Cast Party will be on Tuesday, March 17th from 2:30 - 4:30 at Classic Skating. This will include a meal ticket for one of the following choices: 1. Slice of Pizza & Soda, 2. Hot Dog & Soda, 3. Nachos & Soda. If your child has special dietary needs please send them with a sack lunch.
Bus will leave the school at 2:00 pm and return to the school by 5 pm.
The RSVP form must be completed to attend the cast party.
Please RSVP here
We need your help before, during, & after the play on March 12th, 13th, & 14th. The show can't go on without help from people like you!
Sign-up to volunteer here
***Everyone who will be selling concessions and StarGrams MUST BE CASHBOX TRAINED before the performances. Charity Flanagan in the school office can provide you with this brief, but CRITICAL, training. You can reach out to her during school hours, or by emailing email@example.com.***
Ushers will be handing out programs prior to the show starting, and will help people to find their seats/seating section. Once the show begins your job is complete.
If you are volunteering in a Dressing Room: Your job will be to help the students with their costumes as needed. You may also need to remind them to get back out on stage. At the end of the night, you'll need to make sure things are tidied up and they've put their costume pieces away. There must be two adults in the dressing room at all times.
If you are a Husher: Generally, we need one person in the halls and one person by the stage door. Your job is to keep everyone calm, quiet, and focused. You will help the cast members make their cues and make sure they have the props they need.
Ms. Dallimore has suggested that backstage volunteers watch a rehearsal to get an idea of how things flow, if possible

** UPDATE- We have one week until our advertising deadline, and we are in urgent need of help getting more ads! I have found that the best way is to have a personal connection. What businesses do you know that you can ask to donate?
Here is a list of the businesses we have so far:
Big Apple Pizzeria
The Village Cobbler
The Smile Ranch Orthodontics
Our performances are one month away, and we want to make a great program. The students love to see their names in the programs and keep them for keepsakes.
We need your help! Businesses can buy ads in the program, and that helps offset the cost of printing the high-quality programs. Could each family contact one or two businesses and see if they would be willing to buy an ad? Everyone knows a business, and it is a great deal for them! The prices and purchase information are on the Business Ad Form. The new business ad deadline is February 28.
Families can also purchase "Shout Outs" to say things like congratulations; way to go; love you! These will cost $25 for less than 20 words and $50 for more than 20 words. They will be printed at the back of the program. These are very simple to do as you only have to send an email and turn in payment. More details are on the Shout Out Form. The new shout out deadline is February 26.
I am happy to help talk to businesses or answer any questions you may have.

This is Brooke Matheson the Costume Chair. I wanted to give you some instructions in case there is any confusion.
Please visit the Costume Page for the complete costume requirements for each ensemble group and the leads. On it, you'll see the items that need to be provided from home.
Costume Check-in: We are trying to get all costumes gathered and checked off as soon as possible. Check-in involves members of my committee checking off that each child has each costume item (from home or provided by the school). We ask that each child bring a garment bag that zips closed (i.e. the type of bag that a new suit would come in, like from Mr. Mac) in which their costume items will be kept. Tomorrow your child will be bringing home a card, if they haven't already, that corresponds to the attached list. Please gather/purchase the items that are to be provided from home ASAP.
School provided items: There are several costume items the school is providing. These costumes cannot leave the school under any circumstance.
Costumes stay at school: Because we need to make sure all kids have all their costume items needed, we are requiring that after checked in, all costume items stay at the school in the child's garment bag, including items provided from home, with the exception of underclothing (see below).
Underclothing: The primary purpose of the underclothing (e.g. compression shorts, leotards, etc. as listed in the attachment) is so the children can change in front of each other in the common area and stay covered. We ask that the kids to come to dress rehearsals with their underclothing already on. Please make sure they don't forget to bring it every time, and especially for performance time!
