Heyo OTC! I wish I had words to say about this weekend, but they're just not there. All I know is that I am SO proud of/extremely thankful to everyone who took part in making this show the success that it was. I hope you're all proud of yourselves. I also hope you've slept now that all that madness is over! Here's the schedule for this week.
Strike from 3-6
Strike during pulse and until 5
Finish up strike @ 3 if needed
DON'T FORGET! Strike is... what Keith? MANDATORY! You must get 3 hours of strike within the next week. NO EXCEPTIONS (unless you reach out to an officer with your conflict)!
-CCs: Get those thespian points in ASAP!
-Check the insufficient list (on the twitter) to see where you stand with your hours.
-COOKIE DOUGH! Sell, sell, sell!
-SENIORS: Bring your playbills to strike for those who didn't get the chance to sign!
Have a great, relaxing week!

Tech will continue after the carwash.
Halloweenfest Director Letters of Intent- Due Tues, 10/15
Seniors can apply to direct Halloweenfest. The responsibilities include picking songs, casting, organizing rehearsals, etc. You must be available on Weds for auditions.
Halloweenfest Auditions- Weds, 10/16
Open to full company. Prepare 16-32 bars of a song of your choosing. Auditions will be held in the LT. They're very VERY casual, but please be prepared.
Dinner Theatre Auditions- Weds, 10/16
Same as Halloweenfest, except if you feel inclined, you may prepare a cut from a mid 60s folk rock song.
REMINDER: You CAN audition for both (possibly with the same song, if you choose).
We also need volunteers for Halloweenfest (tattoos, face painting, coloring, etc,.). Sign ups will be up soon. You can also get 1 hour per bag of candy that you bring in that weekend. More info to come.
