This term has just flown by! In all the craziness of the end-of-the-year stuff, we wanted to make sure everyone was on the same page with us!
We sent home a letter a few weeks ago, but in case you didn’t see it for whatever reason: Our performance is this Friday, June 11th at 7:00pm, here at Brown Middle School. There is no charge, and anyone you want to invite is welcome to come. We would appreciate it if you would give us an approximate headcount of the people you have invited by Wednesday, June 9th, so we can ensure that enough chairs will be set up.
Both Big Brats and Little Brats will be performing, with a 15-minute intermission between the two shows, and a total running time of approximately one hour. Both groups will be there for the whole show, as the Little Brats will be performing a finale number with the Big Brats at the end. Students should plan to be at the school by 6:00pm.
Little Brats: We will be providing a majority of the costuming. All Little Brats should come dressed in all black. Long sleeves and pants are preferred. Shoes should sturdy tennis-shoe type (no sandals or slippery dress shoes please) and should be as dark as possible. Please note that at the beginning of the term, we had said we would be requiring students to buy t-shirts. We have decided this will not work with the costuming, so you don’t need to do that! If you have ANY problem at all procuring black clothing, PLEASE let us know, as we can help.
Big Brats: We will be providing the shirts for Big Brats. Please wear comfortable jeans or pants underneath pajamas/robes (that will be taken off mid-show). Bring small pillows and blankets and bean bag chairs if available. Shoes should be sturdy tennis shoes.
In addition to our regular Tuesday night rehearsal, our dress rehearsal will be Wednesday, June 9th. Our rehearsal times for both days will be extended and overlapped on this day, so that we will have an opportunity to rehearse our finale. Little Brats will rehearse from 5:00pm – 6:30pm. Big Brats will rehearse from 6:00pm – 7:30pm. Students should come dressed in their performance clothing for the dress rehearsal.
Also, we would like to ask that if possible, you refrain from attending our final dress rehearsal on Wednesday. It is our last chance to get things right, and the kids need all the concentration we can provide them. Having younger siblings, extra family, or people taking pictures can make things very difficult. If you must stay, we ask that you sit in the very back and remain as quiet as possible. Thank you!!
We are in need of help setting up and taking down chairs for the performance. Lois and Karli are just two people and though we can do many things, setting up hundreds of chairs pushes us over our limits. If you are available, please come at 5:00pm on Friday, June 11th to help set up chairs and/or stay afterward to help put them away! Much thanks!!
