Friday March 10th The Dining Room

Dear Cast/Crew,

Congratulations on an excellent show last evening.  The audience was with you a 100% and your quality of acting was supreme.

A few gentle reminders.

1.  Because your show was so good last night.....sometimes.... actors relax a bit and are not as sharp and alert as they should be.  

DON'T let this happen.  Keep things moving. Remember to project!!!!!

2.  DON'T change or alter the choices you have made, and the way you have worked your scenes.  Everything fits perfectly, and occurs for a reason.  

You are not permitted to add anything to a scene ...it makes our production extremely amateurish if you do.

3.  The audience tonight deserves an excellent performance.  Shine! Create!

4.  Aramark will be enjoying our turkey and all the trimmings this evening.  Do not eat any of the food this ...that being said....

5.  Fancy Night!  I have talked to AppleBees.  They are expecting us.....but we might have not all be able to sit at one table.  Be flexible, be kind.  Remember to tip well!

6.  The Theater Arts ShowCase will be at school starting at 4:00 p.m.  Those who are performing, please arrive by 3:30 p.m.  

Alicia and Avery.....we need to set up refreshments at that time as well.

7. Sunday 9:00 a.m.  I am in need of some kind folks to help break down the set.  I have also asked some parents for help...however, I have not heard back from anyone at this time.  
I would love some support.

Enjoy tonight everyone!  

You have something very special!

From Mr. Roller:

Dear Parents,

As I sat last evening at our Theater Arts Department's performance of The Dining Room, I was struck by a very peaceful feeling of pride and admiration for our learning community. I could have been home watching political contestants rip each other apart and criticize all that is wrong in our country. Instead, I correctly chose to spend my time watching an amazing collection of young men and ladies share their talents with our community. As I looked at the individuals on the stage, I reflected upon the past month. Many of these students have been involved in the talent show, the jazz band concert, the music trip to Harrisburg, sports competitions, the mock trial team, and many will be donating blood today in school for the American Red Cross. (And that's just some of the activities in the past month) It is truly amazing to see these wonderful young people thriving in their community. We should all take time to be thankful for what we have here and the terrific young people who add so much to our lives. Have a great weekend!
