Tech Crew & Scenery Crew
First meeting next Wednesday 10/29, 3:15-4:30 until performance days.
As a reminder, performance days are
Nov 19. 8:45-10:00 & 10:45-11:45am,
Nov 20. 8:45-10:00 & 10:45-11:45am & 7:00-8:00pm
Crew members please bring a small flash light to read the scripts in the dark.
Crew members wear all black on performance days. If crew move scenery on stage, I'd like the top to be solid black, else wear inside out.
Wednesday run-through in performing time. The entire show must be played within 45 minutes, else cuts will be made. This is a requirement from the school for all daytime performances. Now you know why you need to enter/exit stage very quickly, and to speak without any hesitation.
No book on stage. You must nevertheless bring your script and follow the scenes and be ready when needed.
Stand in the wing one scene before yours, and one scene before Finale.
Actors need to be solid and ready to run-through with tech crew starting next week.
If you lost your script, you may print it again from https://www.icloud.com/pages/AwBWCAESEDIfWsTU3L8Oy-HwzbOPuKgaKgMPKLTGav1clGMv-YNf91ygt6rskdV_4fHPfiDJqCGN-RTXpjDti5uF_QMCUCAQEEIGGIzL2Gy4gV6EBMcSQOG3OBswz31RC0dCUjBA_07sK3#Shakespeare_Rocks!_Script_Hao_2

Bring a grocery bag labeled with your name for costumes.
We need white shirts with large sleeves. If you have any at home please consider to loan or donate.
All actors need to wear their own clothing for the first layer. I like girls to have T-shirt that's close to the body, and legging. Boys wear T-shirt or shirt and pants. All must be solid color. If T-shirt has imprint then wear inside out.
Clean socks. Hair tied back unless specified by the director, bang cleared.
We need parent volunteer to check in and check out children.
3pm-3:30pm: stand at the door starting 3pm to take check students in. Call parent of absent children, except those marked "Excused".
4:20pm-4:50pm: two parents to stand at the door and check children out. One for children allowed to check out by themselves, one for children not allowed to check out by themselves (only release them to a parent).
We are using much less volunteer time than previous years, and this is a short commitment task so I'd appreciate you'd be on time. Children often come to the door shortly after 3pm, and some leave at 4:15 to other programs.
Please put your name/ your child's name in the colored cells in this list: https://docs.google.com/

Donation to PTA
If you have not donated to PTA for this program, it is still time to bring a check to the office or to me, payable to Stocklmeir PTA. This is after school program and is funded separately from donations to the school program. No child will be denied for lack of fund, if you have any question or concern please contact me or the PTA president.
FYI, I teach Acting at the Sunnyvale Community Center starting Nov. 3rd.
Acting uses your whole body! This process-oriented class employs Anna Halprin's Tamalpa Life-Art technique, similar to method acting, to help young actors discover and convey a character's emotions. Class begins with a ballet-based warm up and meditative centering and incorporates modern dance, acting exercises, drawing, word play and other creative activities. Parents are invited to watch the final class meeting. Class sessions build toward a performance of The Trojan Horse in the spring. Materials fee of $15 is due to instructor at first class meeting.
Level 1 - suitable for those with little or no performing experience.Level 2 - for those who have taken at least one year of dance or movement, or have participated in a HaoExpression theater production.
Registration is now open, please check with Sunnyvale Classes and Activities, and if you get the catalog, it's on page 18.
