Today the majority of cast members were able to enjoy wearing their costumes for the first time, as we rehearsed the first few scenes of Act 1 in the theatre, together with the dancers.
However, we are concerned that at today’s rehearsal several cast members, were very unsure of, or had forgotten, their lines and cues (knowing when to say their lines).
It is essential that all cast members continue to practice their lines every day. If it’s possible for someone at home to read the lines of the other characters, this will help your child know when to say his/her lines. It will also ensure that all children feel confident when they perform and really enjoy the experience.
On Thursday we will rehearse Act 2 so the cast should focus on learning the lines for Scenes 6 – 10 in the meantime. Next week we will rehearse Acts 1 and 2 and by then expect all children to know their lines and cues thoroughly.
It is very important too that all cast members know the lyrics to “Somewhere, Over the Rainbow” and “Ding-Dong the Witch is Dead.” I have copies of both these songs in my room (2141).
Many thanks for your support and we look forward to welcoming you to the performance in just a few weeks’ time. You will shortly receive information about where and when tickets will be available for the show.
