Chaperones- schedule and sign up
Reminder! 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
Note: The Saturday chaperone jobs don’t fulfill your musical chaperone requirement; however, it is fun to assist the musical team and you earn 5 PRO points per hour.
Please email Mrs. Maryan VW about helping out: email@example.com. Please put “musical chaperone” in the subject line. Please let her know which dates you are interested in helping!

Hair and Makeup
1) if you did not receive a list of what makeup you need, here it is:
Girls in choir
- foundation that matches your skin tone or slightly darker
- •white/light brown eyeshadow
- •nude/light pink lipstick-no dark colours
- •face powder
- •makeup sponges for application
- •hair may be slightly curled. Hair style is your choice but NO CRAZY HAIR STYLES PLEASE:)
Boys in choir
- I highly recommend that you bring someone who knows how to match skin tones when you get your items!
- foundations that match your skin tone
- bronzer that matches your skin tone
- face powder
- makeup sponges for application
- POWDER foundation
- VERY LIGHT lipstick or gloss if you so desire
I’ve already spoken with most of you about what you need. Having said that, please come see me Monday about details. Please bring what you have/think you’ll need to the makeup check on Monday and we’ll go from there.
2) There will be a makeup check on MONDAY, April 17. Please bring all the items on the list so you may be checked off and ready for Tuesday.
3) In the previous email you were told to arrive with your hair and makeup already finished unless you need help. I ask that if you have not been in a Seton production before or if you are a member of the Von Trapp family, that you come WITHOUT HAIR AND MAKEUP ALREADY APPLIED. We have several volunteers who will help in makeup application. Also, if you are uncomfortable with applying makeup yourself, please come early also. If you are coming without hair and makeup, from Tuesday forward, please arrive between 4:15- 4:45.

We would like to ask for volunteers to come out on Saturday at 10 am or anytime after that to help with glue guns, little bit of hand sewing etc… We will have quite a bit of rosary making, glueing on Nazi symbols etc that we could use lots of hands for.

Important message for non-named nuns, novices, postulants from Mrs. Cook (firstname.lastname@example.org) :
Any non-named nuns, novices, 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
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.**

January 17, 2017
Our first rehearsal will begin with a parents’ meeting this Saturday, Jan. 21 at 9:00 in Faustina. We need all cast members and at least one parent from each family to attend. Parents will be free to leave at 10:00 am at which time the entire cast will stay for a read-through of the script. After the read-through there will be a rehearsal for Mother Abbess and the named nuns; the rest of the cast will be dismissed.
- Parents will need to bring two separate checks to the parent meeting- both made out to Seton School.
- Participation fee- $15 per cast member or $25 family max
- Strike and chaperone fee – $50 per family. This check will be returned at the cast party if the student participates in strike and if parent helps with chaperoning. More details about this on the parent information page which is posted on the website under the audition information
- Parents, please check your calendars in advance and come to the meeting on Saturday prepared to sign up to chaperone at a performance. Last year we had great difficulty with finding chaperones for the performances. If your child is in the show we need you to help: we cannot put on the show without chaperones at performances!! We understand that conflicts may arise and that there may be changes to the schedule, but we need to be filling those slots now.
