LAFTA has secured dates for the LHS auditorium for a Christmas show. The theme of the show is "Christmas through the Decades" so those of you wanting to audition, please make sure it is in this theme. We are planning to run the production as a "variety show".
If any of you are interested in helping backstage, please contact me ASAP. We do have the Mahs (Adam and Crystal) lined up for lights and sound, Judy Stevens will be available to accompany if you need her but "canned" music is acceptable. Make sure you have your music at auditions so we can check it with the system, or sheet music if you are wanting live accompaniment. Poems, readings, short skits are also great.
Auditions will be November 14 and 15 in the auditorium, starting at 6 pm. Please come early to register, or contact me on this email. We'd like to get started on time. We reserved the 15th just in case we needed it, but will not use it if no one contacts me to keep the date open. Soooo, please contact me if you can't make the 14th and want to use the 15th!
Rehearsals for the show will be Dec. 7th and 8th at 6 pm, with the performance being Dec. 9th (Friday only) at 7 pm. We will not be having an intermission or full sing-a-long this year, but will choose 3 songs that are not being done in the show to do a mini sing-a-long at the end of the performance.
We are doing this show on a donation basis, with the funds going to our usual places: drama, choir/band.
Any questions or suggestions, please contact me. If you are planning to audition, please let me know so we can have an idea if this show is going to fly.
We appreciate all of you and are hoping we can keep building the momentum until everyone is back, both performers, behind-the-scene helpers, and our audiences!
