Company Rehearsal Updates

REMINDER - Roy High has several events scheduled on March 17, at the same time as the dress rehearsal. PARKING WILL BE VERY LIMITED & the school is allowing traffic for PICK UP AND DROP OFF ONLY. Please carpool, if possible, and arrive a little before your rehearsal time so we can stay on schedule.

Due to the parking situation and to avoid congestion, costumes will be handed out next week during rehearsal classes. Thanks for your cooperation!

Competition Hair Style

REMINDER NEW HAIR STYLE:Hair is straight, all slicked back with a part on the left side, bangs slicked with hair to the right. Place the two rhinestone bobby pins on the right side in line with the eyebrow (slight space in between the pins). One low, super straight pony tail in the middle of the back in the rhinestone pony holder. If your hair in a pony tail does not reach below the shoulders near your shoulder blades, it is preferred that you have a pony tail extension the same color as your hair.

Make up with eye shadow in brown tones, eye liner, false eyelashes, blush, bright red lips. Make up should be performance-stage quality. Remember your earrings, too.Most importantly, bring your smiles and we will have lots of fun!!
