From the Music Department:† Hello Annie Cast...here is some important information! Please print and keep available. The Schedule is very tight - so we need everyone to be at the appropriate rehearsals. There isn't time for going through things multiple times, so this is very important!† If you cannot make a rehearsal, you NEED to let the directors know as soon as possible and email them why you weren't able to be there. (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) All rehearsal absences should be at a very minimum, and only if absolutely necessary. This show will only be a success if everyone is on board.† Click here for the rehearsal schedule and click here for the Scene & Song details.
