Costumes, hair, & makeup

A Note for our amazing Parents:

Our goal is to make this as stress free as possible. Please carefully read through the following points:​

1. Rehearsal will be done in full costume, hair, & make-up. Please have your student ready before arriving for both Rehearsal & Recital. There will not be time for hair/makeup prep before your student's rehearsal time. Please see required clothing for your student's number.

2. Parents with children  & under: If hair & make up requirements are not possible, all we ask is that your child has their hair out of their face, clean & presentable. Please ask your Teacher, Ms. Moriah, or Ms. Ema for alternate hair & make up ideas.

3. Please check if your student is on our quick change list. Quick change means they have numbers lined up with not much time in-between for them to prepare. They will have a someone there helping them change their costume, & if necessary, hair & makeup. Their costume & prop station will be located in the wings, not the black box. Please take note of this for Dress Rehearsal & Recital.

4. While your student is in their costume, they are not allowed to eat or drink anything other than water. You paid for these costumes and we have worked to make sure they are ready for both the Rehearsal & Recital. Please keep this in mind when feeding your student before Recital on Saturday. Cover-ups to go over costumes while eating are allowed as long as they completely cover the student's costume. 

If you have any other questions or concerns, please please contact us. We want to help make this as stress-free as possible. Thank you for being such amazing parents and giving your child this opportunity to grow!
