Welcome to the cast of Courthouse Line VIII -- Saving Private Practice!
I cannot tell you how excited I am about this year's show -- we have a record number of cast members and the level of talent is truly extraordinary! I can tell already that this show will bring the house down. We have a lot of work to do in the next few months, though, so let's get started!
As you all should recall from auditions, we have a cast meeting on Thursday, April 16 at 8:00 pm, back at Briarcliff Baptist Church, 3090 Briarcliff Road. We will be taking cast photos (headshots) for the program this same night, so please come dressed in street clothes/work clothes… whatever you want to be wearing in the program. In order to get all of the pictures taken and also make sure we get in all the important cast information, we will follow the following schedule:
7:00-8:00 pm -- Photos. You may just show up; first come, first serve. Feel free to bring work or a good book to fill the extra time.
8:00-9:15 pm -- Cast meeting. Please note that if you do not choose to come early for a photograph, you must be on time for the meeting!
9:15-10:00pm -- remaining cast photos
At the cast meeting, you will get a copy of the script, a cast list, a production team contact list and a full rehearsal schedule. We have done our best to take into account everyone's conflicts in setting the schedule. If you have had a change of plans since auditions, and you know of any new conflicts, or if some of your conflicts have disappeared, please let us know immediately! You may include that information when you send a confirmation email to Maggie Vath (instructions below).
Because we have set up a new email system just for cast information, we want to be sure it is working. Therefore, I need each of you to email our co-Producer, Maggie Vath, at email@example.com to confirm receipt of this email and to let us know whether you will be attending the cast meeting. SIMPLY CLICK THIS LINK TO EMAIL MAGGIE: firstname.lastname@example.org Note: DO NOT HIT "REPLY" TO THIS EMAIL.
Finally, some of you will start rehearsals right away during the week of April 20. We will provide precise times at the cast meeting, but we ask that the following people plan accordingly:
Monday, April 20: Hope Allen, Rick Baker, Jackson Bedford, Pat Brumbaugh, Domenic Crea, Jim Deichert, Erica Fenby Ghali, Brian Johnson, Courtney McBurney, Bert Reeves, Maggie Vath, Lindsay Verity, Kevin Weimer
