RECITAL RULES


FOLLY THEATER
SATURDAY, 5:00 pm, JUNE 1st, 2019
Arrive For Dress Rehearsal At 8:30 am


  1. Be SURE to have your name in all your costumes, head pieces, & shoes. If something is left behind, we'll know who it belongs to.
  2. Please remove all temporary tattoos and nail polish. No jewelry unless otherwise advised.
  3. Bring extra hair pins and safety pins for any last minute repairs. Scissors are also helpful along with thread and needle.
  4. Dress rehearsal is at 9:00 am at the Folly Theater June 1st, Saturday morning. All students must arrive by 8:30 am. Use the stage door entrance at the northeast side of the building for both dress rehearsal and recital. Dancers should be back to the Folly Theater, Saturday afternoon at 4:00 pm for the 5:00 pm performance.
  5. The children's dressing room is the Shareholders' Room on the second floor. Older dancers are on the main floor and down stairs--follow signs.
  6. Older dancers need full stage makeup. The young children need a little blush, lipstick and mascara because of the bright stage lights. All students must have their hair in buns and no bangs.
  7. If your child/children are only in the first half you may get your child/children from the shareholders' room at intermission. 
  8. DO NOT GO INTO THE LOBBY OR AUDIENCE WITH COSTUMES, TAP SHOES OR BALLET SLIPPERS ON.
  9. As a courtesy to others in the audience and dancers on the stage, please refrain from exiting and entering your reserved seats during the dance routines. If you must do so, please wait until the dance is finished. The dancers have worked very hard and deserve to have the audience's full attention. The performer(s) that are on stage could belong to the family that is sitting beside or behind you.
  10. NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY DURING THE PERFORMANCE OR PERSONAL VIDEOS. IT IS DISTRACTING TO THE PERFORMERS, AS WELL AS THE AUDIENCE.


Thank you, Lorna
