Practice List - All scheduled times are after noon (so don't ask me if that is AM or PM :P ). Coming in late for a Class time is okay. :D

Performance List - Please be ready and on site 45min to 1 hour before the performance time if possible. There will be a private runthrough before the performance. You do NOT have to say in advance you will be performing. If you need costume help the best place to ask is..... at ANY practice. Bring what you DO have so we can figure out what you need.
