DRESS REHEARSAL PROCEDURES

 

  • All performers must report to the BACKSTAGE ENTRANCE to check in. This area is loacted in the middle of the alley (Citizen's Way) that connects Court Street and Market Street, behind the Weinberg Center. When parking in the West Patrick Street Parking Deck (138 W Patrick St.), walk to the first level, turn left at the parking deck payment kiosk that is nearest to the alley, turn left again and you will see the back of the Weinberg Center, and our check in table.
  • Performers should arrive and depart in a cover-up to remain as professional as possible. Performers must not walk around in an uncovered costume, except while backstage. A button-down shirt works great as a cover-up; easy to remove without affecting hair and makeup. Please carry ALL dance shoes in a dance bag. DO NOT WEAR YOUR DANCE SHOES ON THE STREET. 
  • Performers should arrive in their first costume, with hair and makeup done.
  • NO UNDERWEAR, JEWELRY, or NAIL POLISH during rehearsals or performances.
  • Please label ALL costumes and accessories, including shoes, tights, and cover-up. These items will be checked in with your child if he/she has more than one number in a performance half.
  • Parents must enter through the front lobby doors of the Weinberg Center after dropping performers off. PARENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE DRESSING ROOMS.
  • Students will be dismissed into the house, from the door on the left side of the stage, after they dance. If students have multiple dance numbers, they may return to the dressing rooms as needed via the same door. Please note that this only happens at dress rehearsals.

 

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

• The house should remain quiet during rehearsal.

• Video-taping and photography are prohibited during the shows. However, you may use non-flash photography and videotape during the dress rehearsals.

• No eating, drinking or smoking in the theater. All food and drink must remain in the lobby.

• No tap shoes in the lobby. Please carry all dance shoes in a dance bag. Do not wear dance shoes outside.

• If you park on the street, remember the meters are active until 5:00 p.m. Hourly fees are in effect in the parking deck until 6 p.m. After that you will need to validate your parking deck ticket in any of the machines to exit.
