Cinderella Newsletter #2–050619

Tuesday, May 7:  Parent Meeting and Cast Headshots:

  • Mandatory parent meeting is tomorrow, Tuesday, May 7 at 5:45 pm in the Parents Rm (back of Sanctuary).
    • We will go over important information and talk about the costume pieces (i.e. shoes, tights or leggings, pants, shorts and tank tops) your child(ren) will need to have by June 1.
    • This will also be a time to meet our new Director of Volunteers, Christine Rogers.
    • Please make every effort to attend! Thanks in advance for your support of C-MENT in this vital capacity!
  • Cast headshots will also be taken at 5:45 pm in front of the Sanctuary (weather permitting). Please note the following suggestions from our photographer, Pam Davis (PLC member and owner of Savoring the Sweet Life Photography):
    • Avoid clothing with busy patterns, logos and large stripes. Solid colors are best.
    • Sleeveless tops are not recommended; bare arms tend to photograph heavy even if you are thin.
    • Clothes should be wrinkle-free.
    • Comb hair and wear face powder if your skin is oily.
    • Keep jewelry simple. 
    • Avoid shimmer and glitter on clothing and makeup (they don’t photograph well).
