Rehearsal schedule! Note that beginning next week, all scheduling conflicts (barring emergencies) should be RESCHEDULED.
Okay, this is what we are going to try and do! Anyone who is available to stay later after tomorrow's rehearsal - I will stay as long as you like to run whatever acts we can in the chorus room. Then, we will rehearse from 1-4 this Saturday. (Sorry, I can't do our regular weekend rehearsal schedule, I will be coming straight from Jr. District). We won't let a little snow get us down! This show is going to be amazing!
I hope everyone had a wonderful break! Here is this week's rehearsal schedule. We are really buckling down, as we are about one month out now. Please show the dedication that I know you are all capable of and be present at rehearsals. If, for any reason, you are unable to attend a rehearsal, it is your responsibility to work especially hard to catch up on what you missed; and, as always, good communication is key!
Some other NEEDS for the week:
If you have not done so, please work out what you are wearing for each scene and report your costumes to Kaylin. If you do not know what you need to wear, Kay can help!
If you own a pair of tap shoes, please bring them to "Step In Time" rehearsals from this point forward.
We need to start practicing with some stand-in props for "Step In Time". If you have a small broom, please bring it on "Step In Time" days; a dowel or other like item will also do just as well at this point until we have our official props. If you plan to leave this item at the school, please label it.
Here is this week's rehearsal schedule! Please note how importance your attendance is as we really buckle down on choreography and staging. I do not want to rehearse over February break, but if we can't make some serious progress, then we may be forced to. This is completely in your control!
There will be no Night on Broadway rehearsals this week. Please go and support your classmates and Shane Gives Thanks at "No One Leaves Hungry"!
This week's rehearsal schedule! Note that I still haven't received Mr. McLean's schedule for the week, so I tried my best to avoid conflicts, just know that "No One Leaves Hungry" rehearsals take priority at this point.
This week's rehearsal schedule. Note that we will only do a full cast rehearsal on Monday (the only full day for HS students). The other days, scheduled performers are expected to come back to school at 2:10.
We had our first high school full cast rehearsal today and only had about half of the cast present. I would like to remind everyone that a "no call - no show" is absolutely unacceptable. If you cannot make it to a rehearsal, it is your responsibility to get in contact with me (either in person or through email) and let me know.
Beginning tomorrow, attendance will be taken at all rehearsals. Remember that your attendance is crucial to the success of this production. Cast members who fail to communicate are subject to removal from the production.

Night on Broadway
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to audition! This was the longest round of auditions yet - Matt and I left at around 9PM! The program for this year's production is on the Night on Broadway page. I can't wait to get working with you! Have a fantastic holiday season!
Note that these are 10 minute time slots and more than one song can be auditioned in each slot. Please time your songs to make the best use of the schedule.

Here is this week's rehearsal schedule! A few announcements for this week! - All costumes should be in at this point - All props are due in this week - Note the rehearsal schedule for Thursday's early release day - LIGHTING CREW! Christina Verde will be visiting this week to get us set up. I will keep you posted, but please be prepared to make yourself available. - Reminder that our off-book date is October 30th!
Welcome back, everyone! Here is the rehearsal schedule for this week. We are all hands on deck these three days and, from here on out, we won't necessarily need everyone every day.
Please remember that communication is key and if you have a conflict, you MUST let me know as soon as you find out. All conflicts must be communicated either in person or through e-mail. Communication through a third party is not acceptable and is unprofessional. A "no-call no-show" situation qualifies you for possible replacement in the production. Remember that this show will only be as good as YOU make it!
Hello Spelling Bee cast and crew members! I am absolutely amazed with the progress we have already made, and the school year hasn't even begun yet! I noticed last week that we had some costume items beginning to come in and that is FANTASTIC. The sooner we have costumes, the sooner we can do in-character promotion.
Just a reminder to do the following:
- Check the Team Drive in the Costumer folder to see the documents that Kay has sketched out for each character. She has some amazing ideas that I'm super excited for.
- Make sure that you check in with Kay before purchasing/making anything for your character. We just want to make sure that we're not accidentally doubling up on any items. Plus, we may already have some items in the drama closet or they may be donated, so save yourself the stress! Thanks again for being your awesome selves!
In preparation for next week's rehearsals, could all CAST MEMBERS please plan to do the following:
- Memorize all lyrics to YOUR SOLO SONGS to better allow us to do character work - Memorize all lyrics to "Pandemonium", as I would like this to be the first ensemble number we get off the ground and use for publicity purposes - Begin your own character study so you have some strong ideas to bring to the table when we start to talk character development next week
Stay tuned for preparation requests for crew members!
July 17th Rehearsal Schedule
It's here! The first rehearsal is here! Bet you aren't as psyched as I am!
I have attached the rehearsal schedule document that breaks down exactly what we will be doing and when. In addition, please remember to bring the following things:
CAST: Your score and script, and a pencil.
CREW: A notebook of some kind, a pen and/or pencil (it may be helpful to have both handy), and your script (if you don't have one yet, no worries, as we will be making more copies tomorrow). If anyone has a laptop that they are comfortable bringing to work on Google Drive, it would be helpful as I'm not sure which (if any) school computers we will have available to us. We will have the use of my office computer and my Chromebook, but just those two devices don't make it amazingly easy for collaboration.
ALL CAST AND CREW MEMBERS! Please fill out the following RSVP for next week's rehearsal. Please spread the word to any cast/crew members that have not been in contact this summer. Note: I have not heard from the following students yet this summer - Mike Pompei, Matt Ryan, Andre Meservey, Jess Pompei, Charlotte Gedraitis, Olivia Rush.
Please fill out the following survey ASAP to indicate your summer availability. The sooner I hear from everyone, the sooner I can send out another survey to help narrow it down to approximately five rehearsal days.
All students who are interested in holding crew leadership positions for this fall's production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee should submit a letter of interest to Ms Sjolin by Tuesday, June 20th (the last day of school) at 5PM. Letters may be submitted in person as a hard copy, or shared on Google Drive.
All letters should include the following information: the position you are applying for, your past experience in theatre, your skills that would make you a strong choice for this position.
Note: the position of Set Designer is already filled as part of an independent study. All other leadership positions need to be filled.
If you are interested in working on crew but do not wish to hold a leadership position, please message Ms Sjolin on JupiterGrades to indicate your area(s) of interested.
Now on Facebook
You can now follow our theatre group on Facebook. Check it out for information, pictures, and videos from our auditions, rehearsal process, and performances. Simply search CMHS Musical Theatre or username chsmustheatre to join.
Check out the Fall Musical page! Auditions for next year's musical will be on Tuesday, June 13th at 2:10pm in the auditorium. I would like to cast the show in one day, as we did with Godspell, so please clear your schedules now to be available on that day. Get psyched!
Also, if you don't have a permission slip for the Rock of Ages field trip, please come and grab one off of the piano and turn it in ASAP. I will contact all attending students with the official cost this week. It will be $30 - $35.

Final week of rehearsals before production week! THESE REHEARSALS ARE MANDATORY FOR ALL SOLOISTS. PLEASE PLAN TO REARRANGE ALL NON-EMERGENCY ITEMS IN YOUR SCHEDULE. The long hours this week will allow us to simply run and polish things during production week and get out of here earlier. If cast members do not adhere to the following schedule, we will be forced to keep longer hours during production week. Completely up to you! I, personally, would like to lesson the work load that week!
MONDAY 3/27 2:15 - 5:00 Full Cast, Act I We will run all acts (mostly) in show order and will fix things as we come to them. You are expected to be working on your acts around the auditorium if you are not needed on stage in order to use time most effectively.
TUESDAY 3/28 2:15 - 5:00 Full Cast, Act I We will run all acts (mostly) in show order and will fix things as we come to them. You are expected to be working on your acts around the auditorium if you are not needed on stage in order to use time most effectively.

We're officially coming down to the wire, now! We have two weeks to work before production week, and keep in mind that we have some conflicts within those two weeks (Senior Show, Sr. SEMSBA, March Music Madness). This means that these rehearsals are of the utmost importance. This is a reminder that this show will only be as good as you make it. I cannot do it for you, but I do have great faith in you.

Important: Info Needed
I would really like to start working on staging for some of the group numbers soon, but it is really difficult (read: near impossible) to do so without knowing who is in each performance number. I would like to remind the cast of a couple things:
1. It was announced at the informational meeting in December that ALL CAST MEMBERS are expected to be part of the following numbers: 96,000 (Opening), One Day More (Act I Finale), Flesh Failures/Let the Sunshine In (Act II Finale). This is important in order for the ensemble numbers to be strong. 2. No call/no shows at rehearsals are utterly unacceptable. I understand that conflicts happen, but all cast members are expected to contact me directly (in person or via e-mail only, NOT through another person) in the case of an anticipated absence.
FRIDAY 1/13 NO REHEARSAL, ENJOY YOUR LONG WEEKEND!
TUESDAY 1/3 2:15 - 3:15 96,000

Night on Broadway 2017
Many thanks to everyone who came out to audition for Night on Broadway! We heard 100 different auditions! Absolutely ridiculous in the best possible way! Incredibly, nearly all of the songs that we heard were of performance quality and I highly encourage everyone to keep their various songs in the back of their mind and bring them back for future Night on Broadway auditions! Check out the Night on Broadway page for our list of performances. All solo auditions for group numbers will occur after the holiday break.

It's the final rehearsal week! As you can imagine, this means that your attendance and focus is of the utmost importance. Please remember that this production will only be as good as YOU make it.
Just a couple things: 1. Please remember to bring in all props and costume items TOMORROW. Mrs. Archer is going to be taking some promo images, so let's have our costumes be as complete as possible. (Foster, I will try my best to have your jacket there. If not, I think I have an okay stand-in for the sake of photos...maybe...) 2. Mrs. Archer is also going to be taking headshots tomorrow to accompany the bios in the program. Please plan to wear a black shirt/top (nothing specific, other than color), so we have a little bit of uniformity. Please spread the word through a text chain or something so we can get word to folks that don't always check the website before Monday.

Thank you so much to everyone that came to today's rehearsal! We got so much done and it makes me so excited for all of the work that we still need to do. Please check out the company folder on GoogleDrive for some of the ideas that we have had.
Just a run-down on what we accomplished today: - Performers ran through vocal parts for the entire show - We took inventory of what supplies/set items that we can use from the trailer (we have LOTS of fencing!) - Choreographers mapped out the staging for 'Turn Back, O Man' and 'By My Side' - they look great! - Set designers planned the foundation of our set and are beginning to work on details - Publicity coordinators brainstormed ways to promote the production and worked on t-shirt designs - Costumers began to pull possible costume items
It would be fantastic if cast members began to brainstorm what they would like their costume to be. I will create a file for each character. Please start searching and stick some ideas in there. It will be very helpful for the costumers to know what they are looking for.
Also, I will be in the building on Wednesday at 12:30PM if anyone would like to show up to work on something!
Please fill out the following form so I know who to expect for rehearsals! Can't wait to work with you!
Remember, this show will only be as good as YOU make it!
More July rehearsals? Up to You!
Not available for the rehearsals on 7/11 or 7/20 but still want to get some prep time in? Or do you want more time besides what I have scheduled?
By appointment only, I will come in to the school any day this upcoming week or the next to work with cast members or choreographers. Just let me know at least 24 hours ahead of time and tell me what time you would like to work.
Please take advantage of this! Email me to schedule rehearsal time!

I hope everyone is enjoying their vacation! I just sent out an invite to cast members detailing which part you will be singing in each song. Please mark your scores so you are not lost at our first rehearsal. Speaking of our first rehearsal, I have not received availability from most of the cast/crew. I can not send out options if you don't keep me informed. Please be responsible and help me help you. Also, I still haven't received gmail addresses from the following people: Bri Gemma Hadi Jess P Jeremy Lauren Luke Marshall Matt R Mel E Mike P Mya Olivia Sam D Tessa Teresa Tiffany Vicky
Urgent: Contact Info Needed
We are still missing gmail addresses from the following people. Please remember that we will only be successful in this production if we do all of our planning during the summer. If anyone could contact/text these people and remind them to provide me with a gmail address, that would be amazing. Thank you!

Summer Rehearsals/Tech Days
I hope that everyone is enjoying their summer thus far! It's time to start thinking about when we will get together this summer. I would like to have one day in July and one in August. Could everyone (cast and crew) please email me your availability at firstname.lastname@example.org. Based on your schedules, I will create a poll so we can decide on the best two dates. Also, please remind your friends/new crazy drama family members that they must provide me with their gmail address in order to take part in our work on GoogleDrive.
The Team is complete!
Crew assignments are now up on the Fall Musical page! Also, please remember to go to the forum and provide me with your personal Google e-mail address so we can continue to work over the summer.
Crew Chiefs Needed!
We are still looking for a House Manager and a Set Designer for our production of Godspell. Interested parties, please share your application with me through GoogleDrive ASAP. I really want to begin goal setting with the crew, but we can't do this without strong leadership!
We will have our first read-through this upcoming Friday, June 17th at 2:05. Please note the start time, as I do not have early release days like you do. If you are concerned that you will not be able to get a ride back to the school, you are more than welcome to stay through in the auditorium.
Hi Everyone. As of this morning, I have not received close to enough crew chief applications. Remember, these were due last night as I wanted to announce crew teams by tomorrow. This show will NOT be successful without a committed and responsible crew. Obviously, you can see that this does not bode well at the moment... I will extend the application deadline to be Monday night. I will plan to announce all crew positions by Wednesday.
Crew Chief Applications
This is a reminder that all applications for crew leadership positions should be shared with me on GoogleDrive by Saturday night. I really want to announce all of the crew appointments by no later than Monday so we can start forming a plan of attack. Let me know if you have any questions!
Here we go!
Congratulations to everyone who came out to audition for Godspell this afternoon! I was so impressed with every last one of you and I hope that you will all continue to help us out as part of our drama family. You will find the cast list on the Fall Musical page. Crew assignments will be posted by Monday, at the latest.
Musical Theatre Open-Mic
Our end-of-the-year Open Mic celebration will be on Friday, June 10th from 2:30 until approximately 5:30. Please sign up to bring food and drinks or to perform!
Rehearsal tracks are now up on the bottom of the Fall Musical page. I have also indicated where in the Youtube video the "call-back" auditions take place. Remember that the better prepared you are, the stronger your chances of being cast!

It's Almost Time!
Can you stand the antici...... ..... .....pation?
It's almost time to announce the fall musical! Please spread the word that we will be having our informational meeting and Grand Reveal on Tuesday, May 17th after school in the auditorium! In addition to announcing the musical, audition materials and information for crew positions will be distributed. I hope to see a ton of people there, so spread the word and let's help our drama family grow!
If anyone is available to stay after tomorrow (I won't be available until around 3:15) to start moving the Oklahoma! set pieces out to the trailer, that would be amazing! We really need to get the stage cleared tomorrow because Crusader Pride is on Tuesday afternoon. Any help is much appreciated!
Please welcome the following future 8th grade students to musical theatre for the 2016-2017 school year! If you see them, please make sure to show them some of the love that runs rampant in our wacky little family!
