WE WILL NEED PARENTS AND KIDDOS TO VOLUNTEER IN STRIKING THE SET:
This means we will take down the backdrop, the pride rock will go to a home, costumes returned,
lights and sound taken apart and returned to their location, Finally we need to reset Ms.Mazur's classroom.

We might change some animals as we continue with costuming to have some more variety. Stay tuned for any changes.
We need these by next Thursday so we can begin rehearsing in costume. If you do not have any of these specific colors that's fine- something dark colored is the general alternative for pants/leggings, t-shirts and tank tops.
