Show Weekend is Here!

Hi Parents!

We’ve made it! Time for all the hard work and time that the kids have put in to get on stage and show off to excited crowds ready to see them! A few updates & reminders as we approach the shows the next two days:

TEMPERATURES – The temp has calmed down a bit from what we were expecting, but there’s only so much the a/c system can keep up in a large space like the theater on these warm days. We appreciate you reminding your guests/family of this. We’ll empty out the theater completely between the two shows and pump some fans on to try and cool down before starting the 2nd performances.

HYDRATION – Combine the temps with being in costumes and under lights and in small backstage spaces, it’s important that kids bring a water bottle with them. Make sure this is labeled with their name and that they are not leaving empty bottles around the shared spaces. However, hydration isn’t just during the time that they are at the theater, they need to up their water intake throughout the day in order to be well hydrated by performance times. We’ll have some extra cases of water available as well.

DESSERT RECEPTION – We host a dessert reception for the kids/audience between the two shows on Friday and Saturday (and then this remains available during WCKY’s intermission). We ask for parent help in providing desserts, splitting this up by day – with American in charge on Friday and WCKY in charge on Saturday. Desserts should be pre-bagged for individual servings in ziplocks or etc. We have learned that cookies/brownies work best for bagging (some years we’ve had people bring in cakes/pies and that’s hard to get in bags in a non messy way). They should not need refrigeration. All items should be to the theater on your assigned day by 5:30pm. You CAN bring things in earlier than the day of – just make sure to give to directors or myself being clear that items are for the dessert reception.

PARENT HELP – Thanks to everyone who has signed up on the parent help sheet so far! A few spots remain if you’re still available. I’ll take over ticket sales just before the start of each show – you won’t miss anything by helping out! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1QD8zNAHUpd80bA6Oc3WJ7TYBB0qUh0HVTE_P5-QobQU/edit?usp=sharing 

TICKETS – Tickets for Friday & Saturday can be purchased at the door, via our Square site (click on “Store” above), or through the ticket pre-order envelope. The pre-orders can be turned in through Thursday June 23 – THAT’S TONIGHT. ALL pre-purchased tickets will be held at the door for pick-up. There will also be some generic Arc Light merch available for purchase at the ticket table each night. (Acrylic mugs, travel mugs, face masks, and a limited selection of t-shirts/hoodies).
