 10 days till we open! Check out this awesome tweet!

Our goals for this week are:

  1. Monday and Tuesday run a cue-to-cue
  2. Get used to our sets and props
  3. Get used to our costumes
  4. Move into 718 during the show!

A “cue-to-cue” is when we walk through the show and check each light, sound and set cue as a cast. We’ll “spike” or mark on the stage exactly where things go and make sure that lights are shining on your awesome Seuss-y faces. These can be very difficult rehearsals to live through as they can be quite boring! But they’re so important for the success of our show! So hang in there!

We have rehearsal Monday through Saturday this week! Monday through Friday is till 5:00. Saturday is from 9-3pm. Please look at the schedule carefully:
