On Sunday, your child will only be released at their designated dismissal times. Unless previously cleared with a member of our management staff and except in the event of emergency, you will be denied if you attempt to collect your child before their designated dismissal time. This is in order to ensure the safety of all our students. Please feel free to contact Frank in the office at info@wrarts.org or (917) 847-5727 with any questions or concerns about our dismissal policy.

Costumes & Hair

Costumes will be distributed 2 weeks prior to the performance (the week of May 6th). You will be responsible for all costume(s) and costume pieces. Costumes cannot be replaced if lost or damaged so please be sure to store properly.

All students must be wearing the appropriate footwear for each class for both Tech Rehearsal & the Show. The footwear requirements can be found on the uniform page of our website.

Hair must be pulled back and slicked into a tight bun. Short hair can be pulled back off of the face as neatly as possible. Boys with longer hair must secure it off the face with pins or headband. Use the tech rehearsal to practice and to see if hair stays secure during rehearsal.

Students must arrive on May 19th dressed in full costume, with hair and light stage make up done. We will not be providing hair or make up assistance so if you have any questions, please ask us on the day of tech rehearsal.

If your child is in multiple pieces they will come dressed in their 1st costume (marked with orange tape) and holding their garment bag with all other costumes, pieces and shoes.

Children in Show 1 & 2

Dress Rehearsal: Your child may stay with us between their first and second tech rehearsal or you may check them out after the 1st tech and return at 12pm for the second tech. We will NOT provide any food on May 18th, so please plan ahead and pack them snacks/lunch if you wish for them to stay with us between tech rehearsals.

Show Day: We WILL provide lunch for students in both shows on May 19th. You may leave them with us between shows or check them out after Show 1 and return for Show 2 check in at 12:45pm.

Tickets

Each family receives 2 tickets per child performing to the show in which the child is performing. These will be distributed at Dress Rehearsal during check in. Additional tickets must be obtained in advance through Eventbrite and may be picked up at Will Call on the day of the show. If your child is in both Show 1 & 2, the 2 tickets received at tech rehearsal will allow you access to both shows.
