Cast Pictures Tonight

JUST A REMINDER: 101 Dalmatians Cast Pictures are TONIGHT! Please be at the theater at 6:00 p.m.

Thursday, April 24, 2014

ATTENTION: 101 Dalmatians Cast

Please park as far from the theater as possible, to allow space for our audience to park.

Cast pictures will be at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 29.

Tickets are currently available. If your child is one of the small puppies, and you'd like to watch the production as a family, Thursdays would be the best night for tickets, as it's usually a less crowded performance. Make sure you dress your puppy before coming out to the show.

Please remember WATER ONLY in the white room. No puppy food allowed! We will provide a treat for each puppy after the show.

101 Dalmatians

Dear Parents,

Some Reminders for our production:
• We are selling ads for our program, let me know if you are interested or if you would like to let others know I have the letters to take to them.
• We are holding a fundraiser for the production on April 18th at the Houston Wal-Mart from 9-5. If you are able to help with baked goods to sell or items to donate for us to make let Cindy know at 417-217-9430.
• This production costs about $5000 to put on. We have done 2 fundraisers and have a sponsor. We have only earned about $2400. If you have not paid your $10 fee for your child, please turn that in ASAP so we can finalize your costumes.
• There is an Xtra Practice on Thursday, April 10th at 7:00 at the STARS Theater to help us get ahead.
• Anyone that is labeled as one of the little puppies at the end (on website) please provide black pants and socks for your child of any kind.
• We still would like 40 more puppies ages 8 and under (crazy I know). If each of you could find 2 per family to bring or find we need them signed up by next Tuesday the 15th.
• If there are any concerns or questions please feel free to call me at anytime 254-3168.

Thank you for your dedication and support:



Full Cast Rehearsal TOMORROW NIGHT

Don't forget, the entire 101 Dalmatians Cast needs to be at tomorrow night's (TUESDAY) rehearsal. It will begin at 7:00 at the Star Theater, Willow Springs.

The young puppies will do their part of the rehearsal first, so they will be able to leave, and not have to sit through an entire rehearsal.
