Great job, everyone! Thanks for all of the time, effort, & hard work you put into making our production of Willy Wonka Jr. a sweet success!
Don't forget to order your cast photos, http://lhewillywonkajr.smugmug.com. Photos will be available for purchase through May 22th. (That's only 14 more days, so order now.) We have Oompa Loompa socks for purchase as well, $10 a pair. Email me directly if you'd like to buy some.
*Costumes are yours to keep after the final performance!
Squirrels- Please pull hair back in ponytail, if possible, and pin all bangs back. All squirrels will wear hoods.
Oompa Loompas- Please pull hair tightly back and pin or tuck all hair into wigs. If they have bangs, please pin them back.
All other cast members will need to just come with clean, untangled hair so that we can do the styling on site.
Please follow the template that was emailed for make-up on boys and girls. We need this on all cast members so that their faces show up under the stage lights. Some actors will have additions to their make-up once they arrive. Arrival times for actors are listed on each day's events on the Calendar page.
*Invite all your family & friends to see the show! There are still a few seats left to all three performances, http://lhewillywonkajr.webs.com/ticket-sales.
*All cast and crew members and their families are invited to celebrate a job well done with a pot-luck dinner at the school on Monday, May 6th. This promises to be loads of fun and a great way to say "farewell" to our Wonka family. Please sign up to attend and contribute to the event: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0F4BA8A82CA31-willy
*There are still volunteer opportunities available and we need YOU! We promise you'll get to see your actors perform and you'll get a special Wonka volunteer t-shirt to keep! Contact Lisa Rider ([email protected]) or Jenn Scott ([email protected]) to sign up.
Willy Wonka Jr. families... be sure to get in on the Celebration! All cast & crew members and their families are invited to celebrate a job well done with a pot-luck dinner at the school on Monday, May 6th. This promises to be loads of fun and a great way to say "farewell" to our Wonka family. Please sign up to attend and contribute to the event: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0F4BA8A82CA31-willy.
*All actors have been asked to have their lines in Prologue & Scenes 1-15 memorized by Tuesday, March 26th.
*Cast t-shirts will be distributed at rehearsals the week of April 1st.
*April 8th is the cut-off date for leads and Candy Man Kids to get their hair cut. (If their hair is cut too short it can make them look bald with the stage lights... Yikes! The other reason is so that our hair/make-up chair can plan their styles for the performances.) The haircut cut-off does not apply to Grandma Georgina, Grandma Josephina, Grandpa George, Oompa Loompas & Squirrels as their hair will be covered with wigs or hats.
*Rehearsals on March 8th & 11th have been cancelled. Actors in Scenes 6-10 will be notified of rescheduling.
*Ticket sales are live starting today! Advertising to the pubic starts March 15th, so get your tickets early. All ticket sales will be done through
*Our music (with vocals) is now on our Wonka blog: http://lhewillywonkajr.webs.com/music-with-vocals
*We need folks to help paint our sets! We also need a location to do the painting. Please let us know immediately if you are willing and able to help out, [email protected]
*To ensure that every actor is seen on stage, our Oompa Loompa & Squirrel ensembles have been divided into 3 casts. Each of these casts will perform ONCE and the casts are named according to the day/time of their performance. (For example, if my actor is in the Sat/6pm cast, they will be performing in the Saturday, 6pm show ONLY.) Make sure to buy tickets to the show that your Oompas & Squirrels will be performing in. Check the Cast Posting for your assignment, http://lhewillywonkajr.webs.com/cast-posting.
*Don't forget to turn in your Permission Slips and dues! We need a signed Permission Slip from EACH actor in the production. The sooner they're all turned in, the sooner we can order cast t-shirts (that's incentive!).
