Improv club, parent booster meeting, saturday rehearsal.

Important updates below!

Hello, this is your friendly neighborhood el presidente here with a few announcements! First of all, I want to thank all of you for being so wonderful these first few weeks of the show process. It's lovely to see new faces and friendships being made, and I honestly couldn't be happier!

Now, on to the fun stuff. TOMORROW IS THE FIRST IMPROV MEETING OF THE YEAR! That's right, you heard me, we're doing improve during the shows this year! With the help of an improve coach, we will be able to host many more meetings, even when Kristen or I (the captains) are not present. with that said, IF YOU ARE CALLED FOR TECH OR REHEARSAL TOMORROW, THAT IS YOUR MAIN PRIORITY. You can always drop in to improve if you're all done with your work for the day, but make sure your call is taken care of first. the meeting starts at 2:15 in the drama room and goes until 3:30. I can't wait to see you there!

Announcement no. 2 is that there will also be a PARENT BOOSTER MEETING in the drama room at 6:00 PM tomorrow! What is a booster, you ask? They're the super cool adults that help sell concessions, feed us during shows, and do other adulty things to help make the shows a huge success! So if your parent(s) are interested in giving their time to theatre, have them come to the meeting. Students do not have to go, but it would never hurt.

ALSO I would like to make it known that WE HAVE A SATURDAY REHEARSAL THIS WEEK! Check to see if you're called. rehearsal starts at 1:00, so BE THERE AT 12:45. Can't find your schedule? click on the "Hot Mikado" tab on the blogspot to find it.

Lastly, if you would like to be informed when blogspot updates are posted, put your email into the little box on the right to sign up for notifications. It's extremely helpful for us officers, and will make your life easier. Thank you, have a spectacular day!

A Big Ol' Update

Hi guys, Rebecca here, and welcome to the JHS Theatre Society blogspot! The officers and stage managers for our shows will be updating this regularly, so if you ever have questions about something, check here or Mr. Marshall's website first! below is an email Lettie sent out earlier today. If you did not get the email, come find one of us officers and will make sure to put yours in the system. All important documents are on Mr. Marshall's theatre society page. So here ya go Lettie's taking the floor!

 "Hey y'all! Lettie here-

I hope you all had an amazing summer, but now it's time to get back into the swing of things! 

Today we had our September Theatre Society meeting, our first meeting of the year! We went over a few things to keep in mind this year:

  • Auditions- Auditions will be Monday the 12th and Tuesday the 13th. This year, auditions is broken into two days, Monday for dance and Tuesday for monologues and your song. Remember to fill out an audition packet, which you can get on Mr.Marshall's website, the blogspot or in the drama room. INCLUDE YOUR CONFLICTS AND A PARENT SIGNATURE. 
  • Tech- We went over the point system and all the different crews you can join in our meeting today. If you are interested in tech, be sure to come to the tech meeting on the 15th and if you do not get cast into the show, join tech! It's a great way to get involved and help out a ton with our productions. 
  • Improv- Improv is another club like thing you can join though theatre society!Our improv captains are the lovely Kristen Killingsworth and Rebecca Strom and we meet on Thursdays from 2:15 to 3:30 in the drama room. This year we have the opportunity to work with an Improv coach from Seattle and have three performances during this school year. 
  • Ashland!- Just something to keep in the back of your mind for now, but it is our club's field trip during spring break to the Ashland, Oregon Shakespeare Festival. In the past it has been about $365 and contact Mr. Marshall or any of us officers with any questions about this trip. 
  • Boosters- We need your parents to get involved! Let them know that our booster meeting will be the 22nd of this month. Boosters help by either donations or volunteering and our a huge help to our club! So PLEASE make them come!!!
That sums up what we went over today! Keep in mind you will need an ASB card to participate. Us officers are looking forward to this school year with you all, as always, feel free to contact any of us with any questions! 

See you all next month!
