Arrest These Merry Gentlemen Newsletter #11–121019

Dear C-MENT Families:   It’s SHOW TIME!


It is important for the children to continue to get lots of rest, eat well and drink lots of fluids to stay healthy during this hectic week. Let’s pray for good health for everyone! 


All cast members who have more than two lines must come to line rehearsal from 5:30- 6:30 pm on Wednesday night, Dec. 11.  We will meet in Room A204.  We’ll be done in time for the Advent Service, which begins at 6:30 pm.


Please make sure all cast members arrive by 5:30 this week, except for Saturday. All cast and crew should arrive by 4:00 for the Cast/Crew Party Dinner on Sat., Dec. 14in the Fellowship Hall.


We hope you have all advertised the show! Personal invitations from you are by far the best way to build audience attendance! Thanks for spreading the word!


Please note that there is absolutely no saved seating for any C-MENT show. Any parents who are around during the warm-up rehearsal will be asked to leave by 6:30 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm, so you may want to stand in line or have another family member stand in line for seats. We appreciate your respect and understanding. 

You have the option to donate to C-MENT for 4 reserved seats: 

·         $50 donation includes one reserved parking spot
+ 4 upfront seats for the performance of your choice.

·         Online sign-ups are open through Wed., Dec. 11.

·         Seating reservations are first-come, first-served.

·         All proceeds benefit the C-MENT ministry.


Please join us for frozen yogurt with lots of toppings at the Carmel Mountain Tutti Frutti on Friday night after the show. Tutti Frutti gives us back part of the proceeds as a fundraiser and it is a great way for the performers to relax and have fun.


A representative from each family is respectfully requested to stay to strike the show at the conclusion of closing night (Sat., 12/14). Many helpers make the strike go quickly. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.


Remember Cypress Productions will professionally record the Friday night performance on December 13. We will send a separate email with the registration link this week. They are great mementos of our cast’s hard work!

Thanks again for your support and dedication to the C-MENT ministry. We are here to ignite the light of Christ in our cast and audiences!!

In His Name,

Betty King, C-MENT Director
