Every family needs to sign up to chaperone for the performances. For those of you who missed the parents meeting or didn’t sign up to chaperone, please see this link. There are still open times available.  Email Maryan Vander Woude (maryanlee@msn.com) with “Musical Chaperone” in the title line with your preferred time slot.  She will confirm that time slot with you.

We ALSO could use some chaperones for the coming Saturdays in March. We have many scenes going on and could use help keeping the students in the places that they need to be and keeping order in the various rehearsal rooms. Mrs. Erin Vander Woude would let you know what you need to do.

  • •nude/light pink lipstick-no dark colours
  • •face powder

Important message for non-named nuns, novices, postulants from Mrs. Cook (tjteam93@aol.com) :

Any non-named nunsnovices, and postulants who have not yet ordered your nun costume, please let us know (ASAP).  A shortage of this particular nun costume is occurring on many of the website links we provided (and we’re hoping it is because all of our nuns are the ones ordering them!), so we need to know how many girls still have not ordered them so that we can determine a course of action.  This is really important!  Thank you!

Costume Information for the Nuns


Important costume information for the nuns (named and non-named), novices, and postulants wear os download!
Below is the information for ordering your nun costume.  Please order ASAP.  (Note:  if you order from Walmart.com, you can save shipping costs, since you can have the item shipped to the store.)

For the named nuns:

Here are several different website links for the costumes for the named nuns:



For the non-named nuns, novices, and postulants:






For shoes, ALL nuns should get jazz shoes, or if you cannot get jazz shoes, you can wear black ballet flats (plain, and not shiny…no buckles or decorations, please), and you will be wearing black tights.

**The veils that come with the novices’ costumes will need to be altered, so that they have a white veil, so you will need to come see the costume ladies with your costume during practice once you get your costume.  For the postulants, the robe portion of the habit will need to be hemmed, as they will be wearing shorter habits, so please come see the costume ladies with your costume once your costume arrives.**
