Food & Drinks for Dress Rehearsal
Lowell Memorial Auditorium prohibits outside food in the building, on recital day. We ARE allowed to bring food, snacks and drinks in on dress rehearsal day. The concession stands will be open on recital day.

Guidelines for Dress Rehearsal . . .
Dress Rehearsal is for dancers and one parent/chaperone. No guests are allowed. Dress Rehearsal is not a place to bring family/friends. Anyone attending dress rehearsal other than our dancers and chaperone will be charged full price for a ticket. This rule will be strictly enforced so DO NOT bring extra people. All dancers participating in the recital are required to be at this rehearsal. It is very important that every dancer is familiar with the stage, exits and entrances, etc. to ensure a smooth show. We will have an ‘open rehearsal’ meaning that the dancers who are not having a turn on stage and their chaperones are allowed to sit in the auditorium and be our ‘practice audience’. As long as the noise level stays down we will continue with the open rehearsal. If it gets too loud and our rehearsal becomes unproductive, we will have to close it. Please keep in mind that we try to move along a quickly as possible. This rehearsal is for all involved: the dancers, choreographers, lighting crew, sound technician and backstage crew. Each group will rehearse once, some, for many different reasons may need to be run twice or even three times. Some routines are easier to block and light and some are harder so we ask that everyone brings their patience as we transfer all routines from the studio to the stage!

If You Are In One Dance Only . . .
Please arrive at the auditorium with one chaperone, in your costume with hair and makeup done. Upon entering the auditorium, look for the row of seats assigned to your dance and take a seat. Please wait quietly until you are called to the stage.

If You Are in Multiple Dances . . .
Please arrive at the auditorium with one chaperone dressed in your first costume with hair and makeup done. Follow signs to your dressing room. Find a spot to set up your costumes in the order you will be wearing them for the rehearsal and then proceed to the auditorium and sit in the row assigned to your group. Please wait quietly until you are called to the stage. At dress rehearsal the routines will be called to the stage from the auditorium, at recital you will be called from your dressing room.

Videotaping And Picture Taking . . .
Personal picture taking and videoing is strictly forbidden on the day of the actual show. Anyone found using a camera, camera phone etc. will be asked to leave. Because of this restriction, you are encouraged to take as many pictures and videos at the dress rehearsal as you like! Please take advantage this opportunity and tell your guests about this rule for recital day. Lowell Auditorium staff will be enforcing this rule. Your cooperation is imperative and greatly appreciated. The actual recital will be professionally recorded by Performance Video Productions who will be mailing ordering information to your home soon.

Notes About Costumes . . .
Your stage presentation requires some preparation. Kindly prepare your costume by doing the following:
1. Try your costume on at home to see what adjustments need to be made in advance.
2. Securely fasten all hair and headpieces with bobby pins, gel and hairspray.
3. Do not wear underwear under your tights! Tights take the place of underwear.
4. Tuck in all strings on ballet and pointe shoes. Double knot anything that ties-shoes, costumes!
5. Label all costume pieces, shoes and props with your name on it. This way we can notify you if we found it.
6. Check the website under ‘recital notes’ to find out proper accessories, hairstyles etc…
7. Our dress rehearsal will be professionally photographed. Costumes, hair/make-up etc. should be done exactly as it is expected to be for both dress rehearsal and recital.
8. All dancers in multiple routines need to wear a tan leotard with clear straps as a base under all costumes. This provides privacy when changing costumes as there is not enough time for dancer’s to leave the dressing rooms to change in the bathroom between routines.

One Final Note . . .
The most important thing to bring to dress rehearsal is your patience. Please know that we are all trying to speed it along while making sure the dancers feel comfortable with their performance on the stage and that the technical crew is ready for the show. It is a tough balance to keep everyone happy while producing such a large scale production. Again, we really want the kids to be able to see their siblings and friends perform and an open dress rehearsal is their opportunity. We will need the chaperones to help us maintain a workable atmosphere in the auditorium so we can have a productive ‘open’ rehearsal. Thank you so much!

Date: Saturday May 11, 2019
Place: Lowell Memorial Auditorium 50 East Merrimack Street Lowell, MA 01852 www.lowellauditorium.com
Time: Curtain time is 4:00pm SHARP! Performers are to be in their assigned dressing rooms READY TO DANCE no later than 3:15pm.

Food & Drinks for Recital...
Lowell Memorial Auditorium prohibits outside food in the building, on recital day.

Guidelines for Recital . . .
Dancers should arrive dressed in their first costume with hair and make-up already done. Dancers should report directly to the dressing room assigned to his/her class, follow signs posted in the lobby on the wall. Please do not bring your whole family backstage to drop off your dancer. One female only please. It is a good idea to bring something to keep the children busy such as coloring books, games etc.

Rules To Be Followed By All Performers . . .
To help our event run smoothly we have rules in place to be followed by all performers. Parents, we ask that you make your dancer aware of these rules: ALL DANCERS STAY BACK STAGE THE ENTIRE SHOW INCLUDING INTERMISSION. There are absolutely NO dancers allowed in the audience the day of the show with the exception of ‘Paint The Town Rainbow’ (after they have performed) as well as the male partners in Father/Daughter. The balcony and floor will be monitored. Should you be found in the audience by security you will be ushered to the directors and you will not be allowed to perform. If you are not in the dressing room assigned to you, we will not know where to find you and you will risk missing your group perform. This actually happened, a dancer was not where she was supposed to be and she missed her routine. It was her only dance in the show. The dancer, her family and guests were devastated. Sometimes the show runs fast so we ask that you be ready and waiting for your dance to be called from the dressing rooms. This includes intermission. We need you in your dressing rooms even during intermission. This is when we begin lining up Act II. Sometimes instructors will need to speak to you during the show or at intermission so you need to be where you are assigned to be so we can find you. NO friends, family or guests are allowed in the dressing rooms. Only a parent wearing a ‘backstage pass’ badge obtained at ticket day. Backstage parent passes can be obtained at the front desk at studio.

Costume Note & Behavior Expectations . . .
We take care in selecting appropriate costumes for each dance and age level to promote uniformity on stage and a family show atmosphere. Any dancer who alters his/her costume in any way besides the normal alterations for fit will not be allowed on stage. They are to be worn the way you were instructed to wear them along with the requested hairstyle/makeup, tights and shoes. All J & D dancers are expected to be on their best behavior, use their manners and be respectful towards chaperones, runners, backstage crew and each other. We are all here to make YOUR performance go well. We ask that you please leave the dressing rooms neat and take what you came with.

Attention Parents of Our Younger Dancers...
Thursday 4:30 Paint the Town Rainbow (Act 1 #12)
These dancers will meet in their dressing room (#2) before the show (3:15pm) and will stay with their chaperone until they are called to the stage. After they perform the chaperone will take the girls back to the dressing room and wait with them until the first Act is over. During intermission, one parent is to come to pick up their child and take them back into the audience to enjoy the rest of the show. A complimentary ticket will be given to each dancer in this group so they have a reserved seat. Don’t forget to wear your backstage pass badge (you can get this at studio front desk).

Attention Male Partners In Father/Daughter Dance...
Steppin' Out With My Baby (Act 2 #22)
Please wear your ‘outfit’ to the auditorium. A complimentary ticket will be given to each partner at ticket day so they have a reserved seat to watch Act I. Please proceed to the backstage area during intermission. The hallway is a circle around the stage so walk until you find the line up area where your dancer will be meet you. After you perform stay with your dancer in the backstage hallway to come out for the finalé.

Finalé . . .
All dancers are invited to participate in the finalé. Parents of the younger classes mentioned above...if your child would like to participate in the Finalé, one parent should bring him/her backstage after dance #15 in Act II to begin lining up. Please stay in the wings to retrieve your little one when he/she comes off stage. The older dancers will be held on the stage until the little ones are picked up. After that, all other dancers will head back to their assigned dressing rooms to gather their things. Please be respectful of our dancers who may be changing, do not bring your whole family back to the dressing rooms.

Important!
All parents planning to go backstage during the show for ANY reason...help with costume/hair changes, retrieve a little one, etc...you MUST be wearing a ‘backstage pass’ badge. We will have them during the weeks before the recital at the front desk. This is a sticker to be worn and show to security to enter the backstage area before, during and after the show. This is done for your child's safety and they are very strict.
