Monday 22nd June Rehearsal

Tonight we are trying a different use of the space to simulate our stage and wing areas:

1. You will need to enter the Hall from the front foyer, the side carpark doors will remain closed.
2. You will need to stay in the front foyer and kitchen areas so that we can use the stage wing areas as they are meant. Certainly help yourself to a chair, but make sure you then put it away before you leave.
3. Rock group to set up on the carpark side of the hall.
Don’t forget we are starting with the bows tonight, then heading into Act 2.
Please make every effort to maintain a quiet atmosphere, particularly around the kitchen. Be aware of the show run so you make your entries on time. You need to get yourself in place before the item starts.
If you use something from the kitchen please wash it and return it to where you got it.
Thanks for your help in running a smooth rehearsal for us all.
