Dear All,

I have listed each child’s role(s) and costumes below. The highlighted items will be made by my Mum or sourced from our costume box at no extra charge to you. After the show these items are to be returned to our costume box for other shows please. Many thanks.
The items that are NOT highlighted are to be sourced from home – they are all fairly standard things that most should have.

Please dress the children in costume and send them to me on Friday this week (9 Dec) at 3.30pm for a full dress rehearsal. Make-up not needed on the 9th, but on the 11th please put some on at home. I know sharing lipstick amongst children is not the most hygienic thing, so suggest you do it at home before you send them. I may put on some powder rouge here if that is ok.

Take care,
