Fantastic Job!

Fanstastic job everyone....cast and crew! It was a wonderful show, and a wonderful experience. Thank you all for your hard work. Sure hope to see everyone in the summer for Youth Theatre Camp in July. Don't forget to pre-register for Camp. Watch the Barrow Civic website for more details.

There were a couple of pairs of shoes/boots and a couple of camera cases left behind at the theatre. Check the lost and found at the box office if you think you lost anything.

If you sent me your email address, I will be sharing my pictures as soon as they are available. If anyone else took pictures during the show or backstage, and you upload to, please share them with me, and I will, in turn, share with everyone

Thank you again for a very successful show!

January 26 Rehearsal Pics

Wow...everyone in the tech crew has been working hard, and it shows! The stage is coming along quite nicely already, and the coral looks fantastic in all its purple, orange, and blue glory! This is going to be a fantastic undersea world. A special kudos to Aaron, Andrew, and the "men" for all the sawing and cutting and "man's work" that's been going on backstage building the ship.

Leah glitters up Queen Neptune's trident..and her hands...and her pants...and her hoodie..and....Jimmy, Veronica, Chloe, and Sam put highlights on the coral under the watchful and artistic eye of Mrs. she really was just helping prop up the coral for them!

Rebecca runs through some acting exercises with some characters on stage. No, Connor...pretend the camera ISN'T there!

The next rehearsal is Thursday, January 28th, 6:30 - 8:30. The rehearsal involves everyone, including the technical crew. Wear your dance shoes! (except the tech wear old clothes)
Characters don't forget to be memorizing your lines. Show time will be here before you know it!
Martha will be distributing school excuses at Thursday's practices so that your principal knows you will be participating in the show!

Thanks for all your hard work. Keep it up!

January 26 Rehearsal

Tonight's rehearsal, January 26th, involves all tech kids and all characters with lines....MINUS the sailors. The sailors worked hard last week and worked through their stuff, so they will not need to be there tonight.
Rehearsal will run from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

I hope everyone was able to see the fantastic article in last nights "News Herald" on the front page..."Barrow all-youth productions celebrating 10th anniversary." It was a great article written by Kristi Cummins about the last 10 years of the FCOA Youth Theatre and what drives it (hint...Martha!). Connor Kingdom was even interviewed and was quoted as saying "It teaches us teamwork, and it's really fun and upbeat and you make a lot of friends when you're here."

Also, of note, alumnae from the past shows are encouraged to attend the "Little Mermaid," and, if they wear their show shirts or bring a program from a previous show, will receive $1 off their ticket and be invited to the stage for the finale. Very cool! The stage will be packed!!!

Well, the show has been great so far. If you have any questions or comments, please see me, Theresa, Stacy, or Jess....or you can see Martha or Kelly before or after rehearsal. Thanks!
Keep up the great work kids!
