Hair & Make-Up:

Boys - Natural hair and make-up to keep face from looking washed-out on stage. Maybe a little nude foundation, eyeliner, mascara.....face should look natural but enhanced for stage.

Girls - Hair will be braided by our student intern, JoAnne Leon, who is masterful at creating beautiful french braids.  Make-up should be applied to enhance features on stage without looking overdone.  Foundation, blush, a little lipstick, eyeshadow to blend with costume colors if desired, eyeliner and mascara.

"Secret Santa" Gift Exchange

To add a little extra fun to our last week together and to facilitate team-building and camaraderie,  our director, Larry, started a "Secret Santa" gift exchange with the kids.  At last Wednesday's rehearsal, each cast member drew the name of their recipient.  Here are the rules:

At each rehearsal, starting with Monday, July 15th, and each Tech Rehearsal thereafter (Monday - Thursday), each cast member (aka secret santa) is to bring a small gift, wrapped and labeled with the recipient's name.  The value of the gift should be $1.00 or less - something as simple as a candy bar or fun item from the $99 cent store; or, even something homemade (drawing, cookie, etc.).  

In total, that would be five small gifts for you child to bring, wrapped and labeled with the recipient's name - one to give out at each rehearsal.
