CALEDONIA KIDS THEATRE

 Caledonia Kids Theatre began in 2007 with a grant from the Caledonia Education Foundation. Our success has been amazing with productions of over 100 students every season. While putting on a complete musical, we help elementary students gain confidence, stage presence and grow friendships.

CALEDONIA MIDDLE SCHOOL PLAYERS

 

Caledonia Middle School Players is a combination of both middle schools. The program helps students get to know each other and grow lasting friendships from both schools. Putting on a full musical, the students learn teamwork, anticipate others needs, and grow confidence that helps them for years.

Caledonia Middle School Players Production Notes April 26 & 27, 2019 


Extended Practices: We understand that longer practices make for longer days for our performers. Please send a larger snack and a water bottle to school with your student on rehearsal days so they can have a little something extra to eat before practice or during a break. It is also important that the children are getting adequate rest so please refrain from planning a lot of extra activities during the weeks of extended practices and performances. All of our performers are important and we don’t want anyone to get sick. 

T-Shirts: Students will be given their show t-shirts at practice on April 9. We ask that all students wear their t-shirts on Fridays for the month of April as a way to advertise our upcoming performance. 

Costumes: Everyone should bring in a medium sized box (the size of a printer box), labeled with their name, to hold all of their costumes, accessories, and personal belongings. Please ensure a box is brought in no later than April 15, 2019. Everyone should include in their box a brush/comb in a Ziploc bag labeled with their name. Performers should plan to wear simple shorts and a tank top to go underneath their costume to allow for easier costume changes. A costume letter has been emailed with complete costume details. If you have any questions or concerns regarding costumes, please don’t hesitate to email or call. 

Tickets: Tickets are available for purchase by following the link located on our website at www.caledoniatheatre.org. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door prior to each performance. 

Concessions and Flowers: Concessions and flowers will be available for purchase prior to each show and at intermission. Our theatre program is self-funded and any monies generated from these sales goes towards next year’s production. 

DVD’s & Support Sentences: DVD’s are for sale through the resource center on their website www.inspiremenow.org. You will order through them and pick up at the resource center when they come in. An email will be sent when they come in. Support sentences are short blurbs stating congrats and well wishes to your performer in our show program. You can also order this on the same website. Any issues or questions should be directed to the resource center as we do not handle this at all. 

Production Weekend: When the kids arrive on Friday April 26, 2019 we will eat, put on costumes, have hair and make-up done and have a short cast meeting to prepare for the show. Everyone on stage will wear provided stage make-up. If your child has a skin sensitivity, please let us know. During the production all cast members will be backstage. It is imperative that only cast members and backstage volunteers be allowed backstage for safety, security, and to reduce chaos. NO PARENTS ARE ALLOWED BACKSTAGE DURING PERFORMANCES. All cast members must stay for the entire performance, therefore no one will be allowed to leave early. At the conclusion of the performance, cast members are allowed to greet family members in the lobby prior to changing out of their costume. However, cast members will not be able to be signed out until all costumes are checked in. 

Volunteering: All volunteer sign-ups are set up through Sign Up Genius. Please plan to sign up to help in at least one area. We appreciate and need everyone’s help to make our production a success. If you have any questions regarding the production information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
