Anticipation is mounting…

We are a month away from this year’s production, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The students have been working diligently in preparation for our three performances (including most of the actors and some of the crew taking a three-hour stage combat workshop with the president of Speech Theatre Association of NJ, Chuck Miller). This year we have added new layers in which the students have been able to participate. Both the graphic design and costuming classes are preparing items for the show. We have student marketing, makeup, and hair teams. The after school music production group, Life Music, is working on scene change music. With all those involved, there are almost 60 students between sixth and twelfth grades involved. That is almost a third of the whole upper school. The actual performances will be completely run by the students.

We have also added new people to our adult production staff, including:

Production Manager–Michael Wilkins

Set Designer–Bobby Parker

Graphic Design Consultant–Lina Navas

Make-Up Designer–Laura Ceresini

Concession Coordinator–Jennie Higginbotham

**Student Costume Designer and Costumer–Hannah Yeretzian**

Show dates are:

Friday, May 19th at 7pm

Saturday, May 20th at 11am and 3pm

Tickets are already available online at LCA’s BookTix page.

Remember that points are earned by doing excellent work: this includes, but is not limited to, attendance, tardiness, preparation, and performance. Absences are considered unexcused unless the student personally notifies Sister Brown at least a week in advance or there is a dire emergency (in which a parent/guardian must write a note explaining the emergency.) Doctor appointments, family visits, regular headaches, etc. are not considered emergencies. If a student wants to become a part of the International Thespian Society, he/she must earn the points to be inducted and earn the points to achieve higher levels of honor.

Okay, students. The scripts arrived. Please see Sister Brown for your copy. You can purchase your copy from the school for $10 or you can borrow a copy. For a borrowed copy, you must sign out your copy on a sheet that states that you will pay for any script you permanently mark ($10) or lose ($20–to cover replacement expenses).

We have a reading of the script this Friday, December 5th. All students are expected to attend the rehearsal.

Please make sure to bring your scripts to every rehearsal for which you are called. Let’s get started!
