theatre for children, by children, since 1986
We will be testing special makeup on a few characters on Tuesday (not Monday). This will be done before and during rehearsal. A few of the cast have already been asked to arrive at 6 PM on Tuesday; others will be brought back for testing during rehearsal, not all who will have special makeup will be tested.
Below you will find your makeup call times for Hansel and Gretel, full dress rehearsal Thursday and performances Friday and Saturday. Please arrive in the makeup area in full costume at your assigned time. This means if you are changing at the theater, arrive early enough to change before your makeup call time. Also, please come with foundation, black eye liner and black mascara already on and your hair already fixed the way your character's hair should be (check separate costume message for this).

Smiles & Frowns Children’s Playhouse
WOW! Time has really flown by! We anticipate a great show.Following the Friday night performance many of the actors and crew enjoy having a "get-together" at Five Guys Burgers and Fries. If your child is interested in attending please follow these guidelines.
*Please know that this is NOT an officially sponsored Smiles & Frowns event, so we are not providing any supervision to anybody. Each cast/crew member needs to have a responsible adult present and pay for their own food/beverages.
*Since this is not an "official" event, all are welcome to attend, including friends.
*Five Guys always staffs the restaurant well to serve so many of us at that late hour, so PLEASE TIP THEM!!!!!!!!!!
SATURDAY- Everyone is expected to stay and help after the show closes Saturday to help 'strike' the set and put things away. A list explaining what needs to happen and who does what will be posted backstage. Remember to bring scripts to turn in with costumes. Also, clothes to wear home.
Saturday's cast/crew party following the striking of the set IS an official event paid for by Smiles & Frowns and is therefore limited to cast/crew ONLY. No family members or friends are permitted. If parents need to wait at the theatre for their child, they are free to gather and socialize in the auditorium. We usually finish by 5:00
Thank you so much for all you are doing to help this performance be another success!! We appreciate all of your help!

Work on the set and props for our upcoming production of Hansel & Gretel begins 2/11 and continues each Saturday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. through 3/18. If you signed up to help with sets, painting and/or props, please come dressed in old clothes and sturdy shoes on which you don't mind getting paint. Please bring a bag lunch and drink if you plan to stay the whole time. The running crew, lights, etc. will be picked from the students participating in the set build Saturdays. The more you come, the better we know you.
It is important that parents and students planning to participate let us know they are coming so that we can plan the work appropriately. You may contact us through this website to indicate/reconfirm when you are coming.
Thanks. We couldn't do this without YOUR help!
