NEW PHONE NUMBER - CALL OR TEXT

That's right! You can now call or text us at 703-596-2522. If you are running late or need to get in touch with us urgently, please feel free to call or text at 703-596-2522. Mr. CJ manages this phone number, so if your rehearsal is a vocal/choreography/tech rehearsal, he will do his best to forward your text.


The phone number is not monitored after 7 pm and on weekends.

FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES

The Covid-19 Pandemic is having a tremendous impact on our budget. We are asking that every student help by participating in fundraising opportunities providing through the production. We will be unable to do our door-to-door campaign for the second year in a row (although a virtual option is forthcoming).


There are three options for participating in our fundraising. We kindly ask that all students participate in at least 1 option. If you have difficulty with fundraising, please reach out to anthony.cimino-johnson@lcps.org as soon as possible.


1. OUTDOOR FLOWER SALES - These flowers are beautiful. Information is forthcoming. Please sell 3 Flats of Flowers. Flower sales will be released through our online store next week.


2. DONOR/ADVERTISEMENT - Please secure a donor or advertiser for a minimum of $75.


3. DONATE A $75 Opt-Out Fee - Paid at the time of registration.


We appreciate all of your support in these challenging times.

HSM2 SCRIPT PICK-UP

You will receive your script at your first rehearsal. Students will be required to memorize by March 25th.

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 HSM:2 Rehearsal. Rehearsals begin in early March.

2. Open the rehearsal and look at the information.

3. Look for either your name or your ensemble's name.

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

5. Please arrive 15 minutes before rehearsal to take temperatures and fill out the covid screening form.


***The production team will complete the rehearsal calendar after the 16th when registration is closed, and conflicts have been submitted.

SPIRIT WEAR

As a reminder, we ask that all students wear RRPA Gear to all rehearsals. To purchase RRPA Spirit Gear, you can head over to our spirit store.
