CLASS ACTS: SCARED SILLY

Congratulations to the Cast and Crew!

WELCOME TO THE CLASS ACTS: SCRARED SILLY NEWSLETTER

Hello RRPA COMMUNITY,


It is with great excitement that we welcome you to the theatre program at Rock Ridge High School. Over the next 8 weeks, we will work with you and your families to create live theatre and tell amazing stories in a safe and inclusive environment.


Each week, we will provide you with reminders and updates about Class Acts. Each newsletter is a resource for your entire family. We find that they are incredibly helpful in keeping track of upcoming deadlines. Please be sure to read the newsletter in its entirety.


As always, you may also use google translate if you prefer to read the newsletter in a different language.


We very much look forward to working with the students at RRPA on another memorable production.


Inpsiritu,

- The RRPA Production Team

NEXT STEP - ACCEPT YOUR PART AND OFFICIALLY REGISTER

Whether you are an actor or a member of our technical and design production team, it is important to take the next step and officially register for "Class Acts." If you choose to accept your role within our company, please complete the following two steps:


STEP 1: Sign the Class Acts Permission Form HERE.


STEP 2: Please pay the $75 Production Fee HERE. This production fee is similar to an athletic fee and covers the cost of your t-shirt, specialty make-up, props, and costumes, as well as scripts and royalties.


*** We do not want the production fee to be a barrier to your participation in theatre at Rock Ridge High School. Should you require financial assistance, please email Nevein Zalenski Nevein.Zalenski@lcps.org

Positive Professionalism: A Cause for Celebration!

Please join us in welcoming new and returning members to our company! As we celebrate our return to live theatre this school year, please remain positive and professional. We acknowledge that auditioning for a production can be difficult, but please remember that the production team is here to support you in your growth. For additional casting resources, please visit our website HERE.

As a reminder, we ask that all students wear RRPA Gear to all rehearsals. Our Spirit Store will be open next week for you!

HOW TO READ THE CALENDAR

Our rehearsal calendar is located on our website. You can also click the button below to access our calendar. We know this calendar is full and can sometimes be confusing. Here is what to look for:


1. Look for the FALL PLAY or CLASS ACTS Rehearsal. Rehearsals begin next week.

2. Open the rehearsal and look at the information.

3. Look for either your grade or your tech crew.

4. If it reads "Entire Cast" or "Entire Company," that is you!

5. Please arrive at rehearsal 5 minutes early or immediately following the last bell of the day.


***The production team will complete the rehearsal calendar for Tech Crew next week.
