On Thursday, Jan. 26 we will have a school-wide 3 pm afternoon dress rehearsal at Oak Hall school (in place of our usual Morning dress rehearsal) All other rehearsals are in the morning. Attendance is mandatory for a successful production. so please reschedule any appointments. Even if your child “knows their part” it is very important that they be present for the cues, choreography and spacing issues for all our young actors. It is always confusing and harder when someone is missing.
