UTDS Cast reminders

Next week is tech week so make sure you are bringing water every day, you wear deodorant to rehearsals, and rehearse in the shoes you are planning to wear in the show. There will be no dinner break for these rehearsals, so make sure you are bringing snacks to eat when you have time.

ALL STUDENTS must finish their poetry assignment by MONDAY the 20th. If you want to do more than one that would be AMAZING

Let Elle know what you need for hair and makeup if you absolutely cannot get it on your own.

The first day of tech week is a cue to cue, which means that we will be running the show and stopping whenever we need to solidify a light, sound, or tech cue. This means that actors need to be on their best behavior, patient, and focused.

You're an amazing cast! Have a good weekend! Make sure you are looking over your lines and you are memorizing. We still have a long ways to go. I know we can make it, but you need to work hard in order to help yourselves.

UTDS CAST - Stuff to do during rehearsals!

I want to fill the stage with realistic school projects, so I came up with something for you guys to do if you're not being used during rehearsals.

Here are a bunch of poems I found that were written before 1967 and that I thought Sylvia would teach in her English class.

Every student MUST choose one poem (or more) and re-write it on a piece of lined paper or printer paper. On the paper, you can get creative and either make a border or draw an illustration that is relevant to the poem. These should be colorful and creative. Somewhere on the paper, write the first and last name of your character and "period 1 English, Miss Barrett". Adults may also do one if they want!

The idea behind this is to create set dressings that look like actual assignments, so please make it look like you care about your grade. You do not need to analyze these poems, just illustrate them.
