This is our opportunity to blow them all away and to promote our show to the wider community! You all should be very proud of the work you have put in! Let’s sell this show out!!
For $5 head I can organise 1/4 chicken/salad/mayo/bread roll for the cast. I will need to place the order tomorrow so I am tagging you to get a swift response. Please answer yes or no, and if you are answering for more than one person give me a number. If you wish to bring your own dinner that is fine, but the break will be short and something quick to eat will be needed. You will need to bring your own drink(s), the fridge in the kitchen should hopefully be able to cope. Please let me know asap via email, email@example.com if you are not a Facebook user.
To join the River Festival Parade on Saturday 25th October you need to meet Tyson and the amtc group at the Nowra Showground at 10am where the Wizard Of Oz truck will be parked under the trees on the Southern side of the pavilion(hopefully).
Please wear your Wizard Of Oz shirt and black pants or skirt. Some cast will wear costumes, they already know who they are.
Bring some water and wear sunscreen and a hat. You will be walking beside the truck, so make sure you have appropriate footwear.
The parade starts at 11am. It will finish at the SEC.
The River festival organisers have a schedule of performances for the afternoon but we don’t yet have that information. I have been told somewhere around 4pm. I will attempt to make that more accurate, but you will need to gather together before that time in Harry Sawkins Park where the stage will be set. As more specific details come to hand they will be posted.
Our songs will be performed in this order:
Love Changes Everything
All That Jazz
Somewhere That’s Green
We’re off To See The Wizard
