We hope to see you in January for our Winter Term productions. We’ve got exciting shows in the works, and we can’t wait to begin! Rehearsals begin January 5th, so reserve your spot today!
Big Brats – “At the Hop” is a musical revue that takes our 4th to 6th graders back to the days of sock hops, circle skirts and bobby socks with music from the 50’s and early 60’s. Your kids will love performing songs their grandparents sang along with, including Hound Dog, Splish Splash, Johnny Angel, Rock ‘N’Roll is Here to Stay and of course, At the Hop. Speaking lines for all participants, great costumes and solo/small group opportunities make this show a favorite of the Broadway Brats!
Little Brats – 1st to 3rd grade “Brats” are going on a big adventure this winter. “It’s a Jungle Out There” features great songs and speaking parts for all performers. Students take the roles of jungle animals as they try to help King Leo find the “Key of Happiness.” Monkeys, Hyenas and Elephants all think they know the answer. Lights, costumes, sets, props—we have them all. Now, we just need YOU to make our trip to the jungle complete!

Hopefully you received a note home with your student last week, but we wanted to send a reminder for you.
Beginning tomorrow (Tuesday, November 24th) we will have combined rehearsals with both age groups. This is necessary so the students can learn the flow and continuity of the show. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. Please let us know if we can put you in contact with someone with whom you may want to carpool. The schedule is listed at the bottom of this email.
PICTURES: We will be having a professional photographer come to take pictures of your child in costume. We like to have pictures of our classes as a momentum. You will also have the opportunity to view proofs and order pictures if you desire. We do not allow flash photography during our performances, so this is a chance to get a quality picture of your child in costume. More information will be sent home with your child after class tomorrow.
COSTUME: Have your child dressed in black pants and a black shirt tomorrow. Shirts with words and pictures are okay because they can be turned inside out, backwards, or be covered by the costume that we will provide. We have one or two extra if you absolutely can’t get one. Long sleeves are preferred, but short sleeves are okay. The pants should be ankle-length.
ATTENDANCE: We know this season has been tough on everyone’s health. Lois and Karli are no exceptions! Obviously, if your child is sick, or has had a fever within the previous 24 hours, you should keep him/her home. That said, please make every other effort to have your child at and on time for the next few rehearsals. We only have three weeks left until show time and we need every possible minute!!
SCRIPTS/MUSIC: Please continue to support your student in learning his/her lines and music. We asked last week that all children come with their lines memorized on Tuesday. Any help and encouragement from you in this process in appreciated.
Thank you again for your support. Let us know if you have any questions!
