*Crew will report 30 minutes before the cast on show days. 



Cast, please bring your underdressing clothes and makeup for Tuesday's rehearsal. 

Crew, please wear black clothing if you are onstage, backstage or in the sound booth during the show. 

It's going to be a great show, but we need everyone to focus during rehearsals. 

Remember: Speak slowly and deliver your lines loudly, sing out to the back of the MPR, dance like you mean it, and don't touch any props that aren't yours. 


I repeat, in case you didn't get that: don't touch any props that aren't yours. Ever. Never, ever. Don't do it. 


Thanks, everyone!

Ms. O :)

Cast Members: 
Read and Absorb these Guidelines for your Vocal Rehearsals: 

Hi Everybody,

            What a fun cast we have for our PVIS production of Shrek! I am delighted to be the vocal director, helping our young singers sound wonderful! There is a lot of music to learn so please make certain you have access to the Shrek vocal guide and Shrek accompaniment tracks via the Drama website or Dropbox, and practice at home as well as at rehearsal!

Each cast member has a script/score (which should have their name written on the front) to bring to every rehearsal, with a pencil for notes, water to stay hydrated, and a recording device (a phone or other.) Since our rehearsal time is limited, please make sure your student comes to every rehearsal for which they are called. If a student must be absent, please let Miss O. know so she can notify me and I can arrange for that student to catch up in some way. Vocal rehearsals will be every Wednesday and every Friday, starting at 3pm. Here is the general plan:

Wednesday rehearsals are for everyone who sings in the show, with no exceptions. I will send out a schedule every Friday evening for the following week, listing songs and approximate times we will work on those songs. Everyone should plan to be at Wednesday rehearsals in the MPR from 3pm – 4:30pm, and sometimes a bit shorter or longer. The songs involving the greatest number of singers will be first, with some students being excused earlier than others, but allowed to stay in the MPR until they are picked up. Smaller groups/soloists will be asked to continue rehearsal until 5:30.

Friday rehearsals will be in my private studio (across from PVIS at 1300 Via Romero) for soloists and very small groups. Students will be asked to come according to a schedule which will change every week, but communicated to you the previous Friday via email so arrangements can be made for transportation, etc. Script/score, pencils, water, and recording device will be required. Friday rehearsals can be adjusted for student conflicts if you let me know as soon as possible. Students can arrive early and do homework while waiting for their assigned time or do homework until picked up after their practice. If a student has been scheduled and fails to arrive, the student might not be able to sing in that song.

            Thank you for encouraging and supporting all our wonderful students as we work to present a terrific show!
