KEN STIEFEL THEATRE

No one likes to be "nickel and dimed". PA5678 has arranged with GL High School a package that includes: Venue, Police, Adult Backstage Staff, Custodial Staff, Videography with online link that will be shared with all families, Sound, and Lighting. PA5678 is also in discussion with a Photographer who will take individual portraits (on Dress Rehearsal Day and/or Recital Day) as well as pictures during Dress Rehearsal and Recital. These pictures will be uploaded to a shared site and will be accessible by all of our 2021-2022 Families. YOU will own the digital pictures, thus can upload them to any site or get prints as you'd like!
Because there are a few details to confirm, the recital fee is TBD. As last year, the plan is to have one "all-inclusive" recital fee, and will not be asked to pay separately for tickets, video, photos, etc... As details are set, families will be notified of the one, all-inclusive cost.

The Dress Rehearsal is mandatory for all Dance, Musical Theatre, and Monday 5:00pm Acting Class.
3:30pm - 7:30pm*
*As specifics get finalized, details will be updated. Sound Check, Individual Portraits, etc... will all be scheduled. When a student is finished with their specified times, they are welcome to leave, and do not have to stay for the full Dress Rehearsal time. Outside of portraits, the recital will be run IN ORDER. If your student is in the last number, they will obviously stay the full time. If your student is finished early, they are welcome to leave. (On Recital Day, all students and audience stay the DURATION of the recital. Students who's numbers are toward the end of the program deserve the same size audience as those at the beginning.)
PLEASES NOTE: Dress Rehearsal is not a drop-off experience. One parent or guardian should plan to attend Dress Rehearsal with each student. The only exception to this is for students 13 years old or over. However, Dress Rehearsal is the best time for parents to get up close to the stage and take any video/pictures. Although we will have professional Video and Pictures, some families enjoy their own footage. The day to do this is Dress Rehearsal Day (NOT recital day). The High School does not allow outside pictures/video to be taken ON recital day.

Our 2022 Recital is anticipated to begin at 2:30pm.
Audience seating will be on a first come, first serve basis. (If anyone needs a spot for a Wheelchair, they need to let PA5678 know in advance. The Theatre has 2 designated areas for Wheelchairs.)
(As recital plans get finalized, details will be given to all families.)
In an effort to adhere to Occupancy Limits, as well as following possible Covid restrictions, each family will have a limited amount of audience members, likely between 6-8 people. This will be determined closer to the recital.
Students are not considered audience members, and will be accounted for separately from actual AUDIENCE members. Students will be able to sit in assigned rows (back of the audience) with their class, able to enjoy the show while not on stage.
Per our contract with The Berkeley Heights Board of Ed, "No Food, drink, cameras, or recording devices are permitted in the auditorium. Water bottles only are allowed in the Dressing Room Areas. Audience members are not permitted to bring or use recording equipment during any recital. No smoking on the property. Pick up all trash."
