Einstein Musical Production Message Board


OPENING NIGHT Without our knowledge, Shorewood scheduled a college fair the same day/time as our Hood Opening Night.  We have been working with the theatre coordinator to create a lobby for our play in an alternative space outside the theatre.  He will also be on hand Wednesday night to direct traffic and field any questions that come up with the double event at Shorewood.  Please let family and friends know of this situation as the parking lot and lobby will be busy.  Carpooling to opening night would be great!  Even with this space conflict, we believe our actors have worked so hard and should get the opportunity to perform their show three times as is the middle school standard. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do except plan accordingly!  It would also be great to have extra parent helpers at the entrance to the school to help direct theater goers.   

PERFORMANCE TICKETSPre-order ticket sales will be available through the Einstein front office.  $8/Adult, $5/students, $5/Seniors.  Tickets will be available at the door of each performance.  It will be general seating. 

DRESS REHEARSAL/FIELD TRIP – TUES. 4/11/17 (9:30am-1:30pm)

Field trip permission forms must be completed and returned to Einstein in order to participate in the dress rehearsal at Shorewood HS.

Pack a sack lunch that day. 

PHOTOGRAPHY NW Theatre News and Photography will be providing professional videography and photography and selling their photo books and DVD’s at the performances for a reasonable cost.   

COSTUMES Dandylyon Drama is providing main costume pieces for each child.  However, we do need most of your students to provide bottoms, and everyone to provide their own socks and shoes.  These can be items you already own or borrowed from a friend.   Anything they can move, act, dance in that’s in the color family listed for your character group, will be great.

 The Play
In the beginning of the play the neighborhood is not a welcoming place and neighbors generally do not look out for each other. The neighborhood children experience bullying from the character based on “The Sheriff of Knottingham” (Knot). A new kid comes into town and unaware of the way things are starts random acts of kindness and this character is based on “Robin Hood” (Rob). Throughout the story, kindness transforms the neighborhood. It’s does not reinforce harmful stereotypes or pigeon hole anyone. It’s a play about building community and celebrating diversity and forgiveness and making good choices even when under pressure.
