  • Click on this Box link for all kinds of great information!  Check back often for new stuff!
  • HUZZAH!!!!!  You guys were on fire, and the audience LOVED it!  I was in the lobby during intermission and the buzz was electric.  Congratulations!
  • I will be polling the band, crew, and cast -- basically everyone associated with running our show -- as to the possibility of added matinee shows on March 14th, 21st, and/or 28th.
  • Jim L.: Many apologies for not getting that robe hook up for tonight.  This wrong shall be righted, sir!
  • Please check the trash schedule!  Is it your turn to help out?
  • Don't forget to sign in!    
  • If you have a prop that you would like to have a prop or costume preset backstage due to a quick entrance or exit, please write down what the costume or prop is and what page in the script it is used and let Kristie know.  She will find a home for it.
  • Please stay quiet backstage; actors onstage are finding it hard to hear verbal cues!
  • If you'd like to use the Palace's wifi, please use "Palace Guest".
  • Please remember that vocal parts are located in the cast Box folder.  Please review your parts!
  • Don't forget to take out what you bring in!  Throw away trash, put away props, etc., as you leave!
  • Want to see the rehearsal schedule and all of the rehearsal reports in one place?  Check out this blog!
  • Another awesome show made possible by an equally awesome crew!!!  Thanks to everyone behind the scenes for a great opening night!
  • We will have a guest pre-show speaker tomorrow.  KRISTIE: Please have the hand held mic ready for her.  I will cue you as to when to send her out.  CALLIE & CODY: We will follow the same sequence of cues we did today -->  LQ .7 will go, pre-show music will go out, lady will speak, curtain speech will go, band and LQ 1 will go, audience will be thrilled.
  • CODY: Do not forget to put the coat hook in Evelyn's stateroom.
  • CREW ON HEADSET: Please, please, please acknowledge warnings and standbys.  That's the only way to indicate that you have heard what has been said.
  • CREW ON HEADSET: Please, please, please do NOT talk during a standby.  It can really throw off the concentration of those who are about to give and take cues.
  • Don't forget to sign in!  The sign in sheet is located right inside the door into the tin barn.
  • Please make sure you are very quiet backstage.  When speaking on headset backstage, please speak quietly or go into the alley to speak at a normal volume.
