Important Dates for The Little Mermaid

Performances:

February 1 & 8 @ 7:30 pm
February 2 @ 4 pm
February 9 @ 2 pm

 

As I'm sure you've noticed, Burns Park Players are ramping up as we head into the final few weeks before the opening of The Little Mermaid!

Friday 1/18 - Children's rehearsals by grade @ Burns Park Elementary Auditorium
(Note the slight timing change. If 3rd graders are able to get there a little early that is hugely helpful, and will give them a little more time to practice their dance break. However we completely understand if this change is difficult to accommodate.)
6:30 - 3rd Graders, “Positoovity” (Director and Scuttle will join us at 7:00)
7:15 - 1st Graders, “Baby Shark”
7:30 - 2nd Graders, “Kiss the Girl”
7:45 - 4th Graders, “Fathoms Below”
8:15 - 5th Graders, “Under the Sea” and “Les Poissons Reprise”

Please make sure your child is ready to go at the time they are called; it's helpful to arrive about 5 minutes early. That said, there will be other groups rehearsing when you arrive, so please do your best not to be disruptive; you are of course welcome to watch!

Tuesday 1/22 - Children's rehearsal & costume check @ Tappan Auditorium
6:30 - 8p - all grades

Please check the grade-specific emails sent out by Jen Geer regarding the base costume items you need to provide for your child. Please bring these items to costume check in a bag clearly labeled with your child's name. If you have questions the costumes crew will answer them on Tuesday; you can also send an email to heather.mesquita@gmail.com.

Every adult from the cast and every crew member is expected to participate. We ask that you please make arrangements to have kids depart Tappan promptly after the show so that the adult crews can work quickly and safely.
