We will rehearse “most obscenely and courageously” on Saturday, July 5th. Details coming later in the week.

Thanks to those of you who have already learned some scenes! The deadline for all lines to be learned is Saturday, July 19th. The second time we rehearse a given scene, you must be off book. An intrepid diction and delivery coaching team will be available to help you at upcoming rehearsals.

We will start evening rehearsals next week, probably two evenings per week. The best days for me are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7:30 to 10 p.m. Fridays are also a possibility.

Please respond to this email and let me know if you have conflicts or preferences for those evenings from next week through the second week of August. I need to hear from every family as soon as possible so I can pick the best days to meet.

Thanks,
Mr. R.

Please note that we are rehearsing two different scenes at 11.

11 am: Act 1, Scene 1 with Mr. R.
11 am: Act 2, Scene 1 with Mary
Except for Jennifer, the fairies do not need to come to this rehearsal. Henry and Rivaan are also not needed yet. We will include you next week.
1 pm: Act 1, Scene 2 with Mr. R. and Mary (all mechanicals needed!)

If you are not sure when you are needed, please email me or call.

Thanks,
Mr. R.
