HSM – Newsletter #5 on the Website and more!

Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful break! We are now back into the swing of things with only a few more weeks before we are at the theatre.

Please note the following:

As we approach show week, please be sure to check the website for the newest newsletter (click here) for all updates. As well, don’t forget, all cast members are required to be at the theatre 4x during show week. These are mandatory. The show week schedule can be found on the website (click here).

As we get closer to show, please be aware that it is very important that all cast members attend their regular scheduled classes. In the last two weeks of rehearsals, missed classes still need to be made up on another night of the week, though you will not be permitted to perform on the stage space while we run through the show if it is not your regular cast (though performing dances and knowing entrance/exits can be done on the sides). This is so that all actors can feel comfortable with their own cast members and the spacing of their performance.

Finally, if your costume has you wearing a skirt with high knee socks or bare legs, it is important that you wear beige (skater/dancer) tights underneath.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.


Thank you and have a great weekend! Happy practising!
