Newsletter #2 is now up! Please take a look as it contains important information as we get closer to show week. (Check it out here).
Our Costume Parade is next week (starting April 22nd) – This means that you must wear the costumes pieces you are required to provide to class. If you have ordered something and it has not arrived yet, let us know what items those are when you present the rest.
Also, a couple of weeks ago on Thursday, April 6th, one of the cast members left with someone else’s jacket and left the one pictured below, behind. Please take a look and see if you recognize this jacket. If it is yours, you may have taken the wrong one with you when you left rehearsal. They look similar, but the one that was taken was more purple in colour, light weight and a size 10/12. There is also a pouch on the inside that the coat can be packed into. If you mistakenly took this wrong jacket, please let us know so that we can get it back to who it belongs to (we will have the one pictured below at rehearsal).
Due to the weather, rehearsal will be cancelled tonight. We ask that any Sunday cast members, if you can, to come in on another rehearsal night this week (Mon-Thurs) from 7-9pm. Although, moving forward, starting Sunday April 22 2018, Sunday rehearsals will be extended from 6pm-8:30pm each week to ensure we are getting more practice time with the whole cast. There is only five more weeks of rehearsal left before show and with these extended rehearsals we will be sure to have an amazing one!
Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. Please be safe if you are out on the roads today. See you all this week!
Please be reminded that there are no classes this evening (with Sunday cast sudents asked to come in on a different cast night this week, Monday-Thursday 7-9pm).
As well, please be sure to check the costume requirements that are now up on the website. https://miltontheatre.ca/members/hair-makeup-and-costume/
Please do not wait to check these requirements as some costume pieces may have to be ordered online and may take longer than expected.
Congratulations to everyone who came out and auditioned and now cast in the productions. We are very excited to begin production! See you this week!
Hello to all new and returning students! We’re very excited to start our production of Lion King Jr.
A quick reminder that rehearsals begin TONIGHT (Monday, March 5 2018). If you are a part of the Sunday cast, your first rehearsal will be on Sunday, March 11th. Although, if March Break vacations and activities are already planned for that day, we ask that you come in one of the days this week Monday-Thursday.
Please keep in mind that there will be no classes during the rest of March Break; March 12-17 2018. With classes resuming on Sunday, March 18th 2018.
Can’t wait to see you all!
That’s it! Show week is done!
Congratulations to everyone that joined us this week both backstage and performing in this season’s production of The Little Mermaid Jr. Everything was incredible from the performers to the sets to costumes and the hair and makeup. Backstage was a wild ride (and we thank all of you that spent time with us making it all possible) and the performances were beautiful!
Cast party for The Little Mermaid Jr. will take place on Sunday, March 4th at Country Heritage Park from 2pm-4pm. Please RSVP with Kim @ email@example.com if you will be joining us!
Don’t forget that our production of the Lion King Jr. starts in just a couple of weeks and if you still want in, register online as soon as possible; spots are filling quickly! (for ages 4-14 years – or grade 9 and under).

For Mersister’s, Ariel’s and King Triton’s: Please wear leggings/tights (it can be your costume pieces or just a random pair) to rehearsal this week as we will be doing additional costume fittings. We are getting close to show; it’s all coming together!
See you this week!
To all cast members (including F&F cast): Today is the LAST DAY to order a cast t-shirt! Check out the members only section newsletter page to take a look. You can access the order form right from there! Don’t miss out!
Also – don’t forget that this week you must wear your costume to rehearsal! No need for hair and make-up, but includes all clothing, shoes and wigs. If you were supposed to provide more than one, you must wear one and bring the other. Can’t wait to see them!
