  • SUMMIT THEATER PRODUCTION: Paradise Junction News for Feb. 10!

Set, Costume, and Props crew should stay for rehearsal today!

Mr. Billings will contact publicity crew about staying after as well.

Lights and sound crews – you will stay after starting Feb. 24

Cast: We rehearse Act. 1 scenes 1, 5, 6, and 9

This is the Opening, Miss Crochet in the town square, angry crowd in the diner, and watching the show in the diner.

Please: if you are in these scenes, be at practice and stay the entire time. Be ready when it is your turn to go on stage! We need the repetition for actors to be able to make this look natural and believable. It slows our rehearsal and prevents those actors who are present from learning their scenes and from being able to react to the other actors who know their parts and blocking. (I understand illnesses causing absences, no worries). Thank you!

Lines and all blocking need to be memorized by next Tuesday (Feb. 18).
