Youth Show Updates – 6/5

Hi parents! As we get closer to shows you’ll start to hear more from me with some of the administrative things related to the final performances with logistics and some volunteer needs. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions related to these things – if I can take that stress/coordinating off the director’s plates then I’m happy to do so!

  1. The Sponsorship Deadline for individuals and ad space for inclusion in the programs is JUNE 12 – that’s this Monday. Please make sure that all forms get turned into directors or submitted through our Square site/Venmo by then. Sponsorships that come in after the deadline will be verbally acknowledged at the performances (as well as printed in the “Cinderella” programs).
  2. Today at rehearsal directors will be sending home pre-order envelopes for tickets. Pre-orders are for the Friday & Saturday shows only (not the matinees). There is no limit on the tickets you can pre-purchase – just fill out the order blank on the front, enclose the payment (or send via Venmo), and return to a director. Tickets will be held at the door for pick-up each night of performance — these will NOT be coming to you in advance of the show. You can turn these in to directors up through Thursday, June 22.
  3. Also in the envelope is a green order form for program shout-outs if you would like to purchase a square to acknowledge your performer/send a message. These are $10 each and are due back June 12.
  4. IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE THE ENVELOPE FOR TICKET PRE-ORDERS & SHOUT-OUTS reach out to your director IMMEDIATELY, especially since the shout-outs are due next Monday. If you are out of town and we need to collect information digitally and get payment later that can be arranged.
  5. Additionally we would like to offer the ability for parents/families to purchase the meal option that we provide for the cast/crew on the matinee day if there are families who will be staying around all day with their participants. This lunch option consists of a 1/3 La Gondola torpedo, chips, cookies, and water. If you are interested in purchasing a lunch on this day the cost per meal is $6 and must be submitted to me is Friday, June 16.
  6. In the next couple of days, performers will also come home with posters to help advertise the show – please hang these up in places to help spread the word! I can get more printed if directors run out!
  7. Also in the next day or two we will start a social media blitz with the shows – we’ll post on our socials the poster graphics and event pages so you can share that with your digital feed. We will also have tickets available for pre-purchase through our website as well.
  8. Also also, as you look ahead, next Thursday, June 15, will be our Day of Fundraising push on social media. Heather’s goal is to raise $3000 in a single day. We hope you’ll log in and check our social media throughout this day and help share the posts, videos, and messages. This day will culminate in a restaurant night and preview performances from all three summer shows at Pour Bros. in Peoria Heights. We will receive 20% of food and drink sales from this night, so please come out and enjoy dinner and the performances! (Performance schedule: 5:30-33 Pigs, 6:30-Bedlam, 7:30-Cinderella) Directions will be following up with more info for specific cast members needed, attire, times, etc if they haven’t already. There are also some incredible prizes / auction items that will be available – watch our social media for teases on those items!
  9. We could still take bookings for the 12:30 Bedlam & Breakfast matinee performances if you have contact to additional summer camps or groups that would be interested. Let me know and I can facilitate contact information.
