Dress Rehearsal

June 8th
The dress rehearsals are at Lila Cockrell Theatre.  The doors will open 30 minutes before the start time. Arrive in your first costume.  Our staff will help direct you to your dressing room and then IMMEDIATELY come to the audience for important announcements before we begin.  The dancers should sit in the audience and enjoy the show.  We will run the bows during intermission so dancers can leave after their last dance. Please visit the silent auction tables in the lobby benefiting the Sandra and Clarance Mabry Scholarship Fund.



June 9th
The recitals are at Lila Cockrell Theatre. Doors open 45 minutes before the show. The doors to the audience will open at this time as well. You may only save one seat per person sitting in the seat. Dancers should arrive in costume and go directly to the dressing room. All dancers must remain backstage for the entirety of the show.

Quick Change

If your dancer has a quick change, it will be listed on your show assignment.  Please drop off your costumes before the show Stage Left at the quick change area.  Don't forget to label everything and pick up your costumes at intermission or after the show. Click here for the quick change list.

Backstage Procedures and Safety

Only backstage parents are allowed backstage during the show.  Parents of younger dancers can go change their dancer at intermission.  Please LABEL ALL ITEMS including shoes, hairpieces, costumes, etc.  We recommend some dry snacks (dry cereal, pretzels, goldfish.)  No chocolate or Cheetos as they leave messy hands and get costumes dirty.
