  • Tickets are now available but Jos hasn’t had a chance to write the blurb so hasn’t pushed this yet. Once we’re good to go we can start online publicity.

  • Meeting Monday 12 August (? Lucy?) to talk about costumes. We have Ugly Sisters boots and eyelashes so far

  • Still looking for a sad song for Cinders, James is on the case. Sadly he vetoed Jos’s suggestion of the Smiths’ ‘Heaven knows I’m miserable now’ …Any suggestions welcome – no songs from musicals though.

  • We have a production team WhatsApp – no objections to committee members being added if they want to be kept in the loop as to what’s going on.

  • Jos had to adjust the script slightly after the read-through so have sent it out to all the cast. No one has yet asked for a printed copy.

  • Jos needs to email everyone and remind them to sign up as members – need to have emergency contact details for everyone before the Sept read-through.

  • Jos has the audition sign up sheets so will add the info into the Cast spreadsheet asap. Docs are on the G Drive.

  • Jos has asked Hope Chapel about availability for Saturdays for big rehearsals. Hannah only got back off hols today so haven’t had a response yet but will chase in a few days. She has previously said that if we only need it until 4 pm then there will be more availability as there are more evening bookings for Saturdays than daytime ones…

  • Jos to email those cast members James wants for the chorus.

  • Jos to meet up with Louise and draft a rehearsal schedule

  • We have a person interested in doing lighting but we still need a sound technician.
