Fall, and Moving Forward!

Dear Esther Family,

November days have arrived, with pumpkins continuing to star in their show, garnishing the fields and furniture all around us.  Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and "Esther" is moving forward, steadily.  I am very grateful for each one of you!  I would like to thank you for all of your hard work, commitment, and belief in the show, and in One For All Musical Theater.  Thank you!  "The show must go on!" as they say.

Moving forward, I'd like to remind you that Village Inn pie sales are due Friday, November 16th.  Also, if you are planning to pre-sell show tickets for the drawing at our pizza party, December 14th, please remember the tickets must be purchased, and money turned in, before December 14th (at the Dec. 7th rehearsal).  So, if you do not plan to pre-sell any tickets, then you will be expected to pay the minimum $10 fee for this fundraiser before December 14th, if you haven't yet, in order to receive your security deposit back, in January.

Tickets for "Esther" are now on sale online!  Go to www.eventbrite.com and search for "Esther" in Omaha on any of the show dates.

T-shirts are in, so pick yours up if you haven't yet.

Be sure to check the web calendar periodically.  On Friday, November 9th, we will have a guest speaker come to teach the history of Esther's day.

On Friday, November 30th, everyone needs to come to rehearsal for shoulder pictures to be taken for the playbill, and to turn in bios.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask a staff member or myself.  You can reach us at OneForAllMusicalTheater@gmail.com.

I'm excited to see you all at rehearsal!

The "littles" (3 to 7-year-olds) do not have to come to rehearse until January, unless otherwise instructed by the staff. 

Check with staff if you have any questions regarding fundraising.  Village Inn pies are due to be sold, and money turned in by November 16th. 

T-shirts have been ordered, and should arrive around October 19th.

Summer Meets Fall!

       

Fall greetings to the Esther family!

As August has swiftly passed us by, and Fall is ushered in by September's beauty, the production of "Esther" was launched with our first rehearsal, and the second one is almost here! 

I trust all of you have had a wonderful week, enjoying reading your books for the first time. 

I'd like to remind all of you to please check the calendar for updates of special events planned, especially the fundraising events. 

I hope your Summer is meeting Fall with the passion of a romantic bliss, as ours most definitely is in Yahweh!

See you Friday evening with books and water bottles!

In His abounding Grace and Peace,

Mrs. Moore
Executive Director

Let the Rehearsals Begin!

Hello, Esther Family!

As August has swiftly sped by, ushering in the new Fall season, it is time for Esther rehearsals to begin!

Our first rehearsal will be this Friday, September 14th, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, downstairs in the lower level of Rockbrook United Methodist Church (9855 W. Center Road in Omaha).  You will need to enter on the lower west side of the building. 

All adults cast will need to bring $18.00 if they want to order a t-shirt and haven't paid for them yet, on the 14th.  Otherwise, they will have until Friday, December 14th, to raise, or pay (if they can't attend) a minimum of $10 for each of the 5 required fundraiser events.  They will not be reimbursed for anything because they are not required to pay any entrance fee or the reimbursable security deposit. 

The students (ages 3 years through high school) will need to pay a non-refundable entrance fee of $50.00, a reimbursable security deposit of $50.00 and $18.00 if they want to order a t-shirt and haven't yet, on the 14th.

Please refer to the events calendar on the One For All Musical Theater website for all scheduled events, times and dates.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me at oneforallmusicaltheater@gmail.com.  I'm looking forward to seeing all of you Friday!

Fun, Fellowship, and Fundraising!







As August zooms by, we'd like to update you on the latest events swirling around in One For All Musical Theater.

First, we are currently creating music for a filming event, involving video production with the music.  Students who have auditioned for Esther, may participate in the creating of the video, or actually be in it, and experience film making.
Second, "Cinderella," One's first musical production, is currently in the marketing phase.  Students who have auditioned for Esther, are welcome to participate in helping record the C. soundtrack that is in progress, now, in the recording studio.
Next, if you haven't auditioned for our second musical production, Esther, there are three auditions left:  Saturday, August 18th, from 10 am.- 2 pm., Saturday, August 25th, from 10 am.- 2 pm., and 6pm.- 10 pm., at Rockbrook United Methodist Church.  A piano accompaniment will be provided.  The doors are always opened, but major roles will be cast soon, after the cast call backs (for adults only) scheduled Saturday, September, 8th.

For further clarification, students 3 yrs.- high school, there is a $50 entrance fee per student, $100 for families with 2 or more students in the production, a $50 security deposit that will be reimbursed in January 2019, if each family has completed the requirements of raising, or paying (if can't attend) a minimum of $10 per fundraiser, for a total of 5 "fun"- draisers ($50), all, of which is due at auditions.  Each fundraiser will be a great time of fun and fellowship!
T-shirts can be ordered at auditions.  They are $18 each.
All college-aged adults and older, are asked to help with fundraising, by raising, or paying (if can't attend) a minimum of $10 per fundraiser - $50 without a T-shirt, and  $58 with a T-shirt.

Also, there will be a Cabaret Show presented Sunday,  August 26th, at 7 pm., at Rockbrook UMC, in the sanctuary.  It will be a great time for fellowship, as well,  with great music performed by gifted performers.  All family and friends are invited.  Donations are welcome.  Refreshments will be served.  There is not a charge.

Finally,  beginning acting-intensive theater classes will begin in January, 2019, at Rockbrook UMC.  Each class will be $10.  They will be held from 2 pm - 4 pm on Saturdays, beginning in January.

August is Here!

August is here!  As we near the production date of the first rehearsal and our first fundraiser, I'd like to clarify a couple of things so that there are no surprises. 
First, it has not been explained enough that students 3 years to 7 years will not begin their rehearsals until the first Friday in January 2019.  They will be coming only on Friday evenings beginning in January, from 6:30 to 8:00 PM.  They may leave sooner at the director's discretion.
Second, college-aged adults and older who have auditioned and who are cast, will be expected to either raise or pay a minimum of $10.00 for each fundraiser.
We're looking forward to seeing you all soon when rehearsals start!

Blessings,
Mrs. Moore
