We, as a production team, have been in deep conversation with our administration over the musical over the past two months. The following decisions have been a struggle for us as we know you all have worked very hard and passionately for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Because much of the show was recorded during the elementary/assembly performances, it has been decided that we will move forward with filming scenes that were not recorded at that time. The scenes that remain will include less than 20 people, in accordance with safety guidelines. This recording in its entirety will be the performance of the show. Cast members will receive a FREE DVD of these recordings to keep. This DVD is for memory purposes only and cannot be downloaded. This is how we are able to record and give you the show without violating our rental rights.
We desperately wanted to give the students an opportunity to perform the musical again, but with restrictions ongoing as they are, we are unsure of the possibility to perform in a full audience setting even in the summer. We can space out the audience, but we can’t space out our actors onstage. This is why we have made the decision to put together this recorded version for everyone to take home.
We understand this is a massive disappointment. It is for us too. Please know that we care deeply about this production and each one of you! This is not how any of us wanted this to turn out. We feel this recording is the best way the show can be enjoyed by you and your family during this time.
When can you come get your musical stuff? Please come get your belongings on May 21st or 22nd. If you are unable to retrieve your stuff those 2 days, we will put your things in a bag with your name on it and place it in the front office.
We also have many items in our musical lost and found. A dad left a coat one of the parent work days and we have lots of other random stuff. If you are missing something, please check the lost and found when you come get your costume materials.
There are also 5 CCBB sweatshirts available to purchase (1 medium, 4 smalls). It you want one, they will be first come first serve in the front office.
Ms. Dallimore will be sending out an email soon regarding help with getting everything (costumes, sets, props, etc.) cleaned up, put away, and taken back. There is a lot of stuff and she will need assistance. Let us know if you have a truck.
We will let you know when DVDs are available for pickup. Please stand by for further details in the coming weeks.
We just want to take a moment to thank all of you for the work you've put into this show. We appreciate the countless hours you've poured into making this show great. We know some of you wonderful volunteers never got to see your work come to fruition, but none of it was wasted. This show will be with us forever in our memories. Thank you all for making Wasatch a great place to learn and create.
Ms. Dallimore, Ms. Thompson, Ms. Whiting, & Ms. Carling
