Today Amanda and I joined Lois Buchan, Bill VonG, Bill McFee and the 3rd-4th graders for the Interdisciplinary Arts period at school. It was so exciting to hear their jazzy version of Santa Claus Is Coming to Town and At the Hop! Amanda has been taking measurements for all of the children this week, and costumes will soon be spooling out of her magical sewing machine.
A couple of important notes:
* Reminder: NO choreography rehearsal tomorrow.
* Please note - TUESDAY, NOV. 11 - VETERANS DAY: We have scheduled a rehearsal for the afternoon in 2 groups:
1pm-3pm Santa, Mama, Reindeer, Dog, Children of the World, Nancy & Parents
3pm-5pm All Workshop Elves & Human Toys
This is a school holiday, so attendance is optional. Please see the times & groups listed on the website: cornishdramaclub.blogspot.com
* Yesterday (Monday) music CDs, cast lists, and a printed copy of the rehearsal schedule through Nov. 12 went home to all Upper Wing actors and the 4th grade "Block-makers." Please look for them! CDs are of the original classic tunes. Keys, verses and lyrics will be modified (slightly) as appropriate to the singers, but it will give the children a chance to get to know these iconic tunes of the late 1950s and '60s.
* Rehearsal information & cast groups is also posted on the Drama Club bulletin board across from the Teachers' Room (formerly 1st grade room).
* Lower Wing will continue to rehearse in school during music and Interdisciplinary Arts for the next 2 weeks, with a few individual exceptions - please note on the calendar posted at:
* Any Lower Wing families who would like a music CD, please let me know & I'll be happy to burn one for you.
* ALL WORKSHOP ELVES, SANTA, MAMA CLAUS, EICOP & REINDEER - Please make sure to be at CHOREOGRAPHY next Wednesday, Nov. 5 from 2:45-5:30PM.
That's all for now! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
