The Sound of Music – Rehearsal schedule

Below is the rehearsal schedule for “The Sound of Music”.TheSoundofMusic_Flat_1Edelweiss_WEBFINAL

As you will see, rehearsals start on Monday 7th January – at 6pm for Maria and the children – and from 7.30pm for all Ladies in the chorus. Gentlemen, you are very welcome to attend on Monday 7th January but, as there is very little singing for the male chorus until Act 2, you may wish not to attend until Monday 14th January. Most rehearsals follow our usual schedule of chorus (music and large scene) rehearsals on Mondays, when we will have the larger space in the civic centre, and main character (songs and small scene) rehearsals on Wednesdays. There will be some further (smaller female and male role) auditions in early January but these will take place during or at the end of Monday evening rehearsals.

Scripts (the full libretto and vocal score) will be available for all main characters to pick up from Valerie Houldin at the first rehearsal on 7th January. Scripts are hired at a significant cost, so each person who receives a script will be asked to sign for it and to pay a £5.00 deposit to Valerie before they take it away. The deposit will be returned to you when your book is cleaned of all (pencil only) markings and returned to Valerie at the end of the show.

There are 3 Sunday afternoon rehearsals scheduled for 24/2, 03/03 and 10/03 at Bebington Methodist Church and two further Sunday rehearsals on 17th and 24th March when we are in the Theatre. Rehearsals and performances which take place on Sundays and other days of the week in the last 2 weeks before the performance are indicated with an asterisk. (*)

The rehearsal schedule will be displayed at every rehearsal and there will be a signing in sheet for all rehearsals. Performers who miss more than two rehearsals without first agreeing their absence with Jane, Greg or Valerie may lose their role in the show.

Please email Jane on janedirectorpsp@gmail.com as soon as possible if you (and/or your child) are unable to attend a particular rehearsal. We will do our best to re-schedule rehearsals to accommodate people who can’t be with us when their scenes are being rehearsed but, as time is short and there is a very large company for this show, it’s unlikely that we will be able to please everyone!

We look forward to seeing you in January! – Jane, Greg, Valerie and the Port Sunlight Players Committee.
