Please note: We are planning to take  group pictures on Wednesday May 22 to use with advertising the show.  Plan to wear your costume Monday so we know we are ready for Wednesday



       For Monday May 20:  


I would like to plan to go over the Family and Jonah Songs right at 7 Pm- For all  Family members and Judd,  please plan to come early- ie any time after 6:30 pm. so we are ready to start downstairs on time.  Parking will get difficult right around 7 pm.  Please plan to have costumes on right at  7 pm so we can see how all costumes work together.  


Rehearsal will hopefully be a chance to snap lines in all big group scenes ( we will not do songs while snapping lines)  Those who are not in the big scenes should be snapping lines in one of the side rooms. 

start  with Act I scenes 1,2, & first half of 5 and Act II scenes 3,5,6, 7, 9  We can end this part early if everyone remembers lines and keeps the practice going smoothly.   BUT We still need to go over these sections a couple times each-  to speed up the dialog in several places!  Please also keep going over your lines a couple times a day. 


The second half of rehearsal will be everyone in Act I scenes 3, 4, 6,  and 7 , and Act II scenes 1,2, 8,10 and 11,   Possibly practice Scene Burg on the Bear song after  8:45 pm
