Chapman SetHere are the highlights for those involved in the musical from our Coordinator, Elizabeth Fagan:

Please note the following COSTUME, NEXT STEPS AND FINALIZED TIME  for the performances:

COSTUMES

  • Send your student to school on Wednesday, May 23 with all of their costume pieces.
  • If you have extra items that your student won’t wear, but that could be borrowed by another student, please send that as well. Label if you need those items returned.
  • Put a name in everything your student brings in its own bag for storage. Costumes should remain at the school from then on, to be used in rehearsals the following week, May 28 – the final performance on June 1st. If you need to continue working on the costume, it can be taken home over the weekend to be brought back by May 28.

PAINTERS NEEDED FOR HELP WITH THE SET

The following is a “to-do” list for the set. If you can claim one of these jobs, please email Elizabeth at elizabeth@octc.org.

  1. Red White and Blue striping on the front of the stage: finish painting the blue stripe and touch up as needed (1-2hours)
  2. Brick lines: add grey striping to the red wall on stage to make it look like bricks (1-2hours)
  3. Ears of corn: painting tall corn in the foreground of the hills on the back wall (2 hours)
  4. Detailed store front painting on the movable flat: this requires some detailed work and a level of detail-orientedness/creativity. We can talk more about what the final flat should look like if you are interested in taking this on! (4 hours/2 sessions)
  5. Scraping Paint: yep, you are correct. This is literally about scraping paint from the floor of the stage. One of the downsides of having so many amazing hands to help is that things got messy….would be lovely if someone could scrape some paint to help preserve the auditorium (1 hour)

If you already took on a project (painting the suitcases, making curtains for the train flat…), please complete by Monday, May 28 for the final week of rehearsals.
