Step in time, step in time, come on mateys, step in time! It's time to start putting together our numbers for Mary Poppins! The script has been divided into sections, and each section has been assigned a letter. Please read the cast list carefully to see which letters
correspond with the scenes or songs you’re in, then find those letters on the calendar to see when you are scheduled to come in for rehearsals.
All students were asked to submit their availability for May by the end of February, and we used that info to create our rehearsal calendar. If you let us know that you were not available on certain dates or at certain times, we have not scheduled you in for rehearsals at those times, so if we are rehearsing a number that you are in when you're not available, you will see that you are marked as absent on the calendar, or that you are marked as arriving late or leaving early. If you are marked as absent or late, and things change so that you are able to make it in on time for that rehearsal, please do join us. Where you see, for example, "NO BEG Jazz/Hip Hop", you do not need to come in for that rehearsal even if you are available.
Please remember that all students must attend all scheduled rehearsals. Those who miss rehearsals that they are called for in May or June (and are not marked on the calendar as absent or late) may not be able to participate in the show. While last minute conflicts may arise, we need rehearsals to take priority in order to put our show together. This may mean missing a birthday party or other event in order to attend rehearsals. While we understand that students may get sick, and that sometimes being late is unavoidable, those who miss three rehearsals in May that they are called for will not be able to participate in the show. We have a lot to learn, and a lot of students to work with, and changes cannot be made to the rehearsal calendar at this point. Please make plans in advance so that you are able to attend all your scheduled rehearsals on time.
Can't wait to see Mary Poppins start to take shape!
