Please arrive at school by 11:00 AM with the following:
When you arrive, go straight to the small gym to get your costume and, if you speak in Act 1, a mic. Then meet in the auditorium to get started. As soon as the band arrives at noon, we're running the show. The goal is to be done by 4:00 PM but we'll go later if we're not done.
See you tomorrow!
This week we start running the entire show, with all cast and all crew every day. Here's the plan:

So it looks like we're actually right on schedule!
We have roughly three weeks until opening night. Yes, there's a lot to do between now and then. But I know we can do it!
Today we worked on Scene 9 and the "machine" for Scene 12 (which will build up to the machine in the headmaster's office and the doomsday device in Scene 15) and it looks pretty good. Check out the schedule for what we're doing the rest of the week.
