Dear Parents and Students,

I hope you all have been enjoying your summer!  For those of you that do not know me, my name is Neil Burch – theatre educator for GHS and GMS. As July comes to an end, I look forward to starting rehearsals for our upcoming production, Little Shop of Horrors.

Rehearsals will begin with our Little Shop Camp on Tuesday, August 8th from noon to five pm at the GHS auditorium. Originally we intended to have this camp run from August 7-10th. Due to many reasons, we made the executive decision to cut camp one day short.

The following is the schedule for our upcoming camp:

 

Tuesday, August 8th (Noon to 5 PM):

12 to 2:15 PM: Read-Through of Act I

2:15 to 2:30 PM: Break

2:30 to 3:15 PM: Music Rehearsal

3:15 to 3:30 PM: Break

3:30 to 5:30 PM: Dance – Full Cast and Crew

 

Wednesday, August 9th (Noon to 5 PM):

Thursday, August 10th (Noon to 5:30 PM):

12 to 2:15 PM: Ensemble Building

5:30 to 6:30: Parent Meeting/Cast and Crew Cookout (Location TBD)

 

What should students bring to rehearsal? We recommend the following items: water bottle, snack (optional), script, pencils, and a notebook.

 

After the last rehearsal of Little Shop camp, we will host a parent meeting combined with a cast and crew cookout. We would love for you to attend this meeting because we will be discussing rehearsal expectations and other Drama opportunities for the upcoming school year.

 

I look forward to meeting many of you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions. The following link is the full rehearsal schedule for the next three months: Rehearsal Schedule.

Sincerely,

Neil Burch
