If you would like to be involved with the production side of the show Stella would love to hear from you!
Chorus will be villagers, laundry workers, the Mummy, Abanazar’s slave, palace guards and camel. Lots of singing and dancing! Please have a think about whether you fancy being a mummy or a camel!
There will be a read through on Wednesday 17th July at 7.45 at the Village Hall. I'd love to have everyone- all the cast(principals and chorus) plus the production team- at this.
Rehearsals will start on Sunday 1st September at 2pm.
Sunday rehearsals will start at 2(although we could start slightly earlier if the majority would like this) and Wednesday at 7.30.
The all day rehearsals are Sundays September 15 and 29, October 13 and November 3 but it’s very unlikely that you will be called for the whole day for all of these! Please do put them in your diary though as these are so helpful for nailing chorus scenes, choreography and chorus singing in particular.
I will send out a schedule by the time of the read through so everyone knows when they will be needed. Please let me have dates you cannot attend asap.
The dates of the show are November 20-23 with a matinee on the Saturday. The technical rehearsal will be on Saturday 16th and the dress rehearsals on Sunday 17th and Monday 18th November.
I would like all those called to be at every rehearsal after the half term break ie. 3rd November.
See you soon!
