Oh the Thinks you can Think...

OK Everybody... this Saturday will be the first rehearsal and you all have your scripts and CDs so you should be pretty familiar with the show by now.

On Saturday we are going to spend the first part of rehearsal with some introductions and some brief explanation of how the process of putting on our show is going to go.

Then, we will be singing through the opening number: Oh the Thinks You Can Think!. Please try to listen to this song (track #2 on your CD) a lot this week so you are familiar with it.

Ms. Sabrina will also be teaching you the basic dance move for this song so remember to wear the appropriate clothing for dance rehearsals.

Also, we will be passing out CDs for everyone which contain the final tracks of the show. For some reason, these tracks did not record properly on the original CDs.

Finally, please be sure to bring a signed and completed GREEN form to rehearsal. It's important for us to have those on file for each of you.

We can't wait to see you all... this is our biggest cast yet and we can't wait to feel that great energy at rehearsal this Saturday!

Seussical Rehearsal Info.

Hi Everyone,

We're so excited for this show and hope you are all enjoying the music. We will have the last 4 tracks for everyone at the 1st rehearsal. Please read thru this email and reply so that we know we have your email addresses correct. It's the best way to keep us all up to date.

We would like to add an extra hour of rehearsal beginning March 3rd. This is discussed in detail below.* Your child would only be required for either 2-4pm or 3-5pm based on which songs they are in, but they are welcome to be there the entire time.

Our first rehearsal is next Saturday February 17th from 3-5pm at HART Dance Academy in La Habra. The address is 1100-C S. Cypress Street, La Habra 90631.

We will begin promptly at 3pm and after warming up and getting to know each other a bit we'll be working on the Opening Number "Oh The Thinks You Can Think". If any children want to sing solo lines they can audition at the 1st or 2nd rehearsal.

Here are some things we need...

1. If you haven't turned it in...bring the GREEN Emergency form from your packet so your child(ren) can participate. I've attached it again in case you need it. Fill out both sides.

2. The children need to wear clothes they can stretch and dance in and close-toed shoes that stay on. (Tennis shoes or dance shoes are great.)

3. You should feed the children before because we can not eat in the studio. Do send them with a closeable water bottle with their name.

4. If you are dropping your child off please return by 4:55pm for announcements.

5. *Beginning March 3rd some groups will be called from 2-4pm and others from 3-5pm. Please let us know if you can not be at any rehearsal at 2pm since that is an earlier time and we will try to put your child's group in the 3-5 time frame on those days.

6. We will be taking headshot photos for the program at the first 2 rehearsals.

All of the email announcements we send will also be posted on our blog at so that you can reference them beginning next week in case the emails ever get lost in cyber space. It'll be good to check the blog each week because we'll also be posting what we learned at rehearsals.

Please call or email if you have any questions.

See you on the 17th,

Ms. Sabrina
