Village Theater, Dress Rehearsal, Wed. Jan. 9th., 7:00 p.m.
This is a dress rehearsal for Saturdays' performance.
Stage Dress: Hawaiian shirt, (hat optional). The theater will do sound and camera checks so it's important we're wearing the colors we'll be wearing Saturday.
Equipment: Bring the uke you'll be playing Saturday and a sturdy music stand. Those plugging in, bring an amp cable, fresh betteries.
Stage Setup: The theater will arrange us on stage to best benefit the dancers and the ukers. We enter the stage mid performance, so there is a bit of choreography involved. Again, sound and camera checks will be taken, so our actual playing time will be minimal on Wednesday.
Playing Time: We'll have time afterward to run through some numbers in the lobby, but space will be limited.
This looks to be a great event, and a great start to the year.
Questions? Email me directly at [masked]
Thanks, see you there.
Looking forward to a great Uke Year!

So those are the ten songs we need for Saturday? I'll make sure I have them lined up!
I really had fun at the rehearsal on Saturday! I'm looking forward to Wednesday night (and, of course, the performance on Saturday).

We're rehearsing in my home in Plymouth 10am on Sat., Jan. 5, if anyone wants to rehearse with us. I sent the playlist for Village Theater to Craig. The perf. at the church is longer.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
