All students enrolled in BROADWAY at The Rose classes will end the season with a Spring Concert on The Rose main stage complete with costumes, lights, and sound!
The 2013-14 season Spring Concert will be held May 17-18, 2014. The Musical Theater/Voice/Acting Concert will begin at 2 pm on Saturday, May 17; the Dance Concert will begin at 2 pm on Sunday, May 18. Each family will receive four complimentary tickets for their student’s performance. Additional tickets are $6 each and may be purchased by calling The Rose Box Office at (402) 345-4849.
Costume expenses for the Spring Concert are included in the price of tuition. Most costumes are ordered for the students to keep. Some costume items may be provided by The Rose Costume Shop and those items must be returned after the Spring Concert. If your student’s costume includes such a piece, you will be informed of this when the costumes are distributed. Parents will receive an email stating the date their student will receive his/her costume. On that date, parents should accompany their student to class, so they can sign for the costume. Hair and makeup instructions will be given at that time as well.
As a part of The Rose Theater, we strive to produce a Spring Concert that is both dynamic and professional. Part of the process includes final dress and technical rehearsals. During this time, the students work onstage while our technical staff works offstage and backstage to incorporate all the technical elements into the performance. This includes costumes, lighting, sound, sets, and props. Because we are coordinating so many aspects, technical rehearsals tend to last a long time. The performers will be asked to stop and start again as light and sound cues are programmed, set changes are practiced, props are introduced, etc.
We ask for your understanding and patience during this process.
Students are expected to arrive an hour before the Spring Concert is scheduled to begin so they have ample time to get into costume and makeup. After check in, parents are welcome to wait in the lobby until the auditorium is ready to be seated, which will be 30 minutes before the performance time. We ask that audience members stay seated during the entire performance, just as you would for a professional production. Our students work very hard to prepare for the Spring Concert. Please show your appreciation and respect for their efforts by staying for the entire show. Students will be released in the lobby once they have changed out of their costumes.
For the safety of the students, video recording and photography is not allowed in the theater during performances. Parents/guardians are welcome to bring cameras and video recording devices to the final tech rehearsals.
Tuition must be paid in full by May 10, 2013 in order for the student to participate in the concert.
