The performances are scheduled for  December 14th (eve), Dec 15th (mat and eve), and Dec 16th (mat) at Cheney Hall in Manchester CT.   Dress Rehearsal will be the evening of Dec 13th.

The following is a tentative rehearsal schedule, given so that you can plan ahead.  However, it is SUBJECT TO CHANGE!   So please check here weekly!  Unless otherwise noted, all rehearsals will take place at 53 Main St. in Bristol CT.   Please email me the day before at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you will be absent for any reason or if you have any questions.   Please note I leave the house in the morning to teach classes, so I do not usually see messages emailed the day of rehearsal.
   
Children should bring water and a  healthy snack to rehearsal on days when they will be at rehearsal for a while. It would also be prudent to bring somthing quiet to do during waits between rehearsal times (homework, a book, coloring etc.  If bringing electronic games, please bring headphones or set to mute.)
