COSTUMING 

We are thinking soloists in their costumes, dancers in Time Warp garb and everyone else in VERY fancy black. We will discuss more on Monday. 

FOOD
For the choir members who are not dining, there will be food for you in the green room.

SMALL GROUP.
Some people expressed interest in being in a small group for the DD. The piece is 'Keep it Gay'.  Please think carefully before you volunteer (there will be some extra rehearsals and memorizing on your own time.)
