What happens on show day

Send your child with $5.00 per show day for their pizza dinner. Between shows YADA will order pizza and have juice for all the cast members.

  •  Send your child with a water bottle clearly marked with his or her name.

  •  Please leave ALL jewelry and hair accessories at home. We will remove them for their

    dress rehearsal and performances.

  •  Make sure your child is wearing bike shorts and a tank top. This way there will be no em- barrassing moments during those fast costume changes backstage. More specific infor- mation on opposite page.

  •  Please make sure your child’s hair is washed and clean. If they wear a wig, please pin curl their hair and bring a wig cap. If you do not have a wig cap, they can purchase at YADA for $3.00. More specific information on opposite page.

  •  All performances are held at YADA’s THIRD STREET THEATRE: 8115 West 3rd Street, LA, CA.

  •  Remember to leave yourself and your guests plenty of time to find parking.

  •  On designated days YADA will offer valet parking. The valet attendant is located in the alley behind the school.

  •  Parents are asked not to visit their children prior to curtain. This is very important as the actors are getting into make-up and costumes. They enjoy the excitement that their parents and friends will see them in character for the first time when they walk on-stage. Please respect this policy.

  •  No guests are allowed backstage at anytime. No exceptions.

  •  Parents are encouraged to volunteer in the lobby prior to their child’s show. In

    appreciation of your time, YADA will give you a free 5x7 cast photo of your child’s cast.

  •  Remember to fill out your souvenir forms!

  •  Lobby doors will open a half hour prior to show time.

  •  No flash photography will be allowed during the show as it is dangerous to the 19 performers onstage.

When is my child's dress rehearsal and show day

It all goes way back to 16th century, when an unknown printer obviously had enough of it trying to come up with some dummy text each and every time. So, this dude made a type specimen book using Lorem Ipsum text and … Lorem Ipsum was alive! But, of course, almost every true star needs time to grow in popularity, so it was in 1960's when Lorem Ipsum made it to the »front covers«. It was a major star in Letraset sheets publications released in 1960's. And then came computers and Lorem Ipsum, just like Michael Jackson and other real stars, used new technology and new media to grow even bigger. It was Aldus PageMaker software which gave Lorem Ipsum the opportunity and it grabbed it with both of its legs and arms … or something like that.

What Does My Child Need to Wear?

COSTUMES

YADA provides every student with specially designed and constructed costumes. Worn under each costume, students will need to provide their own "Show Clothes,” described below. These items should be worn for both their dress rehearsal & show day.

GIRLS:

Please bring a flesh colored, thin spaghetti strapped tank top & skin tight biker shorts.

BOYS:

Please bring skin tight biker shorts & a white, beige or black tank top.

SHOES:

Most of the time, jazz or ballet shoes are what your child will wear for their show. For girls, character shoes can be worn depending on the part they are cast in. Also, for shows like “Oliver”, boots or old shoes might be asked to be worn. As we get closer to the show, the costume designer will send home a list of what type of shoes would be preferred. Also, if you need to purchase jazz or ballet shoes, YADA sells gently used ones for $10.

PIN CURLS

Sometimes students will be cast in parts that will require them to wear a wig. If this is the case, please send your child to YADA with their hair in pin curls (boys do not need to do this) as well as with $3.00 to purchase their own personal wig cap. For sanitary reason, this wig cap is ONLY for your child, and they should bring it back on their show day. If a student does not bring their wig cap back on their show day, YADA will bill your account for another $3.00 to ensure your child has a new, sanitary wig cap.

HYGIENE

We would like to kindly ask every child to come to YADA fully bathed; face clean, hair washed and, if appropriate, with deodorant. This is due to the im- portance of applying make-up and to achieve each costume and wig appli-cation. YADA's make-up and hair crew need clean, fresh slates to work with!

Is There Transportation on Dress and Show Day?

All children to be picked up and dropped off in the lobby on dress and show…
