Hello Summer 2021 KAYT Families

Welcome to our 2021 season! Thank you for your patience as we finalize the details of our awesome 2021 revue, “Lovin’ Summer!” Rehearsals will be starting May 10
Our 2021 Artistic Director is Melissa Ebert!

Please read this important information:

1. Schedule - Rehearsals start May 10. 
When you come to practice, please enter the back door of the Middle School. Please also bring with you the following items:
  • Script binder
  • Pencil  
  • Medical Form (pink) & Release and Liability Form (blue - only one per family is needed)
Parents, please plan to stay for the first 15 minutes of practice.  Once we are done with announcements and answering questions, you can leave until practice is over.  
They will be Mondays - Thursdays from 5:30-7:30 PM (mostly) from May 10 to June 3 at the Kiel Middle School’s Large Group Room (basement). 
June 7 through July 7 practices will be at the new PAC. After June 7, some rehearsals will go until 8:00, especially as we near show time.  
Show dates are July 8, 9, 10, and 11.

Please know that we TOTALLY understand that you have other commitments and that you may not be able to attend every practice.  However, if you do have to miss, you will need to practice your lines and choreography on your own time to make up for what you missed.  All choreography will be recorded and sent out after each practice.  After looking through the practice schedule, please contact me right away if you see any major conflicts so we can work through it together.  

2. Masks - Masks will be required at all rehearsals. There may be times when masks may be removed when socially distanced for singing purposes.

3. Pick-up Materials - Scripts are ready for pick up from Sally at the Kiel Public Library THIS WEEK May 3, May 5, and May 7 from 2 pm to 6 pm, so cast members have a chance to read-through before our first rehearsal, figure out their parts (which are all assigned) and determine when they need to be at rehearsals.  
There will also be 2 forms that need to be completed and returned at the first rehearsal (Liability and Medical Release forms).

Because there is no “double-casting” this year like we’ve had in previous years, everyone will be performing their parts at EVERY show! So it is especially important that everyone do their homework and practice their parts at home as we move through rehearsals.

4. Cast in Cohorts - Performers have been assigned into groups of about 7-8 kids. The performers will be rehearsing and performing primarily with members of their cohort. There are a few times when more than one group will be working together, as well as some song and dance numbers that include the entire cast.

5. Forms - Be on the lookout for an email with a Google Forms link to complete. This form will need to be completed by the first rehearsal, May 10.

6. Emails (Check your Spam/Junk Mail) - Please check your junk email folders periodically throughout the season, since KAYT emails have been known to filter to junk mail at times. You may also be receiving emails from our director, Mrs. Ebert, and her email is 

Costumes this year will be pretty basic but a few characters do have some specific items they will need to wear.  Please look through the costume document to see what you may need.
8.  Props/Sets
We are also looking for several props and set items.  Please look through the list of items we are looking for and let me know if you have any of the items on the list that you are willing to part with or donate from June 7 to July 11.  Let me know if you want the item back when we are done or not.  
9. KAYT 2021 Lovin' Summer Participant Form
Lastly, please make sure you fill out the KAYT 2021 Lovin' Summer Participant Form. We only need this completed ONCE per family.  

Thank you again for your patience. We are so excited to offer this opportunity for your children and get started with “Lovin’ Summer!”
