Thank you to all actors who auditioned. The callbacks were very inspiring for all of us, and I look forward to seeing all of you at auditions for URINETOWN on Monday, November 3.

To all cast and crew, there will be a company meeting on Monday night, August 25, at 6:30pm in the PAC where you will receive materials and the cast will be measured for costumes. Please bring a parent with you. There will be some costs for scripts, company party and strike dinner that we will ask you to cover, as well as a chance to purchase the show t-shirt and DVD. Financial assistance is available to any student. Parents can talk to Lynn Madden about this during or after the meeting.

We will go over the rehearsal schedule on Monday night. For those of you with conflicting jobs and activities, we ask you to begin making arrangements to clear your conflict schedule completely from October 14 – 26. We are working with many cast conflicts. If you can free yourself from any of your earlier listed conflicts, please make every effort to do so and to notify me by e-mail. If you add conflicts after we start rehearsal, we will need to remove you from numbers.

Congratulations to all of you!

Brad, Jayne and Larry
