ALICE IN WONDERLAND CAST!!! Make sure you get your splash booklets and sign up for Broadway on Vine for Splash Session III. Rehearsals will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning January 20th, and they will run until 5:30pm. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Skarzynski or Ms. Stenzel.
Auditions will be held Tuesday December 9th and Thursday December 11th from 4-5pm. Callbacks will be Friday December 12th from 4-6pm. Stop by room 1622 to sign up, or drop in by the band room on the audition dates. Any questions or concerns, please see Miss Skarzynski or Ms. Stenzel.
You can now access Alice in Wonderland music under the "Music for Download" link. Also, at the bottom, is the music we will be using for auditions.
We are excited to announce our Spring Musical for the 2014-2015 school year as Alice in Wonderland, Jr! Please bare with us as we add new information for upcoming rehearsals and auditions. Thank you!
Please check the rehearsal dates for specific information on dress rehearsal and performance expectations.
A detailed letter will be sent home with students with performance information as well as the below information.
Strike is mandatory on April 29th during the SPLASH session times.
Costumes: Must be performance ready for the April 22 dress rehearsal.
Students who have costumes ready can begin bringing them to rehearsals and garments can be kept at home or on the cast clothing rack. Garments should be labeled with the student’s name. Shoes, hair accessories, and specific props to the costume should be kept in a bag with your name labeled, as well.
Make-up for Show:
We will have "general use" blush and mascara available. Students are welcome to provide their own or share supplies at their own discretion. Specific lead roles may use altered make-up choices that match stylistically their character (i.e. Mersisters may use eye shadow that matches their chosen top).
• Blush (required for boys & girls)
• Black mascara (required for boys & girls)
• Black/Dark eyeliner (boys & girls - optional but encouraged)
• Foundation (optional)
• Neutral/Realistic Lipstick (girls only - encouraged)
• Neutral eyeshadow (girls only)
Mrs. Ellis will be at the ensemble rehearsal on Thursday, April 3rd at 5:00 pm to help with any costume questions and also for tracing of patterns. Also, the Jellyfish umbrellas will be in on April 3rd for pick up. Please email the BoVine email to let Ms. Skarzynski know you will be needing one of the umbrellas.
Cast T-Shirts: $15* for cast members ($18 for non-cast members)
*We want EVERY cast member to have a shirt. If $15 is not doable for you right now, please contact us and let us know what you can afford at this time.
Shirts will be ordered on Friday, March 14th. We will order for all cast members on that date, but will ONLY order shirts for non-cast members from whom we’ve received full payment (in other words, if a student has not paid for their shirt yet, we will still order them one, even though we will still need their payment to fulfill the order. However, if a non-cast member has requested a shirt, but has not paid by March 14th, we will NOT place their order and a shirt will not be available for them).
Please send cash or checks made out to Broadway on Vine to school (students can hand them in at rehearsal or in the main office). You can email your order to Mrs. Lodes (firstname.lastname@example.org) and send your payment separately, or can send a note or the attached form with your payment straight to school.
Shirts are pictured below (expand the picture by clicking on it), and are available in the following colors and sizes:
Colors: Blue, Purple, or Green
Sizes: Small, Medium, Large, XL, 2XL, 3XL
Students were given a handout about program ads at rehearsal yesterday, February 25. The sale of program ads supports Broadway on Vine (which is a self-sustaining program using each year's ticket sales to pay for the next year's show) and celebrates our students and local businesses. The image below shows a page from last year's program with both a professional and personal ad (click on the picture to expand it).
For most of the "student shoutout" ads, parents simply gave me their message, and I formatted it into an ad for our program. Information about purchasing/selling program ads is in the PDF attached to this announcement. Ad info can be emailed to Mrs. Lodes (email@example.com) or sent to her at school. Checks can be written out to "Broadway on Vine" and given to Mrs. Lodes in the main office. All program ad information is due to Mrs. Lodes at UMS by March 20.
The attached cast letter was recently distributed to the cast and includes several details about the next few months of Broadway on Vine. If you haven't, also visit the "Rehearsal Schedule" link to the left for a preview of our anticipated rehearsal & performance schedule.
See the top of the "Home" page of our site for our updated performance schedule. We are VERY sorry that our performance weekend conflicts with the Illinois Marathon. April is such a packed month at UMS, we can't find another good weekend! With Mr. Mann and Ms. Skarzynski both participating in the races on both Friday evening and Saturday morning (cheer them on!) we certainly realize what a full weekend this will be for many of our families. Thank you for your understanding.
Hello! We are back in session. All cast members need to get signed up for "Broadway on Vine" during session 3 of SPLASH. We will have SPLASH forms available at rehearsal for students who need them.
Until spring break, all students will need to be at rehearsal until 5:30 on both Tuesdays and Thursdays, with the following exceptions:
Thursday, February 13: No rehearsal (parent-teacher conferences)
Tuesday, March 4th and Thursday, March 6th: No rehearsal (ISAT testing) - some students may be called in individually
Students will need their scripts and a pencil at every rehearsal. Once we start choreography and blocking, they will also need secure shoes in which they can move around comfortably.
