Dear parents,

Please bring or send your checks tomorrow! Mrs. Rumsby will be at rehearsal for part of the day, and/or Mr. Rumsby will have an envelope for the checks. Please give the check to one of them.

Here is what we need:
A production fee of $25 to cover props, costumes etc (not tax deductible).
A family donation. Minimum suggested $50 per actor (tax deductible). (Keep in mind what comparable programs would cost)
You may combine these in one check but I will account for them separately.

Mrs. Smith will be asking for a separate costume deposit of $25 to be refunded after your costumes are returned. Do not add that to this check.

Mrs R.
