I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I am sure you have questions about what is going to happen with our production of The Addams Family and after meeting with the Directors and the Boosters, I wanted to pass along decisions that we have made.
First, it is our intent to do everything we can to have performances. These performances may not be as many as we planned or even at the same level as we planned but we are going to do everything we can to have, as they say, the show go on. We all feel that if we can have 3 weeks of rehearsals, we can put on a great show. What we don’t know is when we will be back at school. So, we are proposing moving our performances to May 15, 16, 17th to give us some buffer room if the school remains closed for a long period of time. This will hopefully give us enough rehearsal time we need. We are also considering the idea of trying to perform over this summer. We understand that new dates may not work for everyone in the cast and crew. Please complete the following survey for your Jaguar Player so we can make well-informed decisions: https://forms.gle/edfvEJv9pAfWqLok8.
We know that things are changing at the District, state, and federal level quickly so if we are instructed to make a change to this plan, we will let you know as soon as we do.
In the meantime, cast- please continue to rehearse on your own using the resources on Google Classroom; crew- review your scripts and contact your Directors to see if there is anything you can do from home.
Please be reassured that we are going to do everything we can to give these students to opportunity to perform as they have all already put in so much time and effort. We will keep you updated as we get more information.
Thanks for your help and support,
Theatre teacher, Jaguar Players Director
