 Hi singers,

Our rehearsal on the 22 is with Heidi.  Please spend some time reviewing the videos which you will find on the music practice page for Fame and Ain’t mis-behavin’. We are hoping that time can be spent on refining the moves not learning them from scratch.  You can’t depend on the person in front of you.  Rows might even be moved around just to make sure everyone is comfortable with the moves without help.  Think of yourself as the one everyone is looking at for help!!

 We will also review Aquarius and Ain’t misbehaving.  Dress comfortably.  .

As Ruthie mentioned last week, we all need to have a dress bag with our name on it that will store and carry all our costumes and accessories the afternoon of the show.  We’ll talk more about this in October.  Check out the website under show information to see pictures of the accessories.

Thank you, also, to all those who contributed quotes for Emily’s “book” on the harmonizers. If you missed this edition, you will just have to wait for the sequel. (Emily laughs at this ). It is going to be a gem.
