It All Happened… Newsletter #7–111518

It All Happened in the Country

C-MENT Newsletter #7

November 15, 2018

Dear C-MENT Families:

COSTUMES Please make sure your child has all their costume pieces as previously explained. Please email Cathy Pence, if you have any questions. A hard copy of the parent letter from the latest meeting (11/6) was sent home with those cast members whose parents were unable to attend. Please note the following information from the parent letter:

    • Clear totes containing shoes, spare stuff, hair, and makeup – should be brought to church for the Cue-to-Cue rehearsal (12/1).
    • Base clothes remain at home and kids come to the church in them beginning on 12/1. We really want to have the Cue-to-Cue be in costume, like Joseph. We need to be able to practice the costume changes (happily, there are not many of them).

HEALTH:  It is important for the children to continue to get lots of rest, wash their hands frequently, eat well, and drink lots of fluids to stay healthy during these hectic next two weeks. Let’s pray for continued health for all.

CAST PHOTOS: IMPORTANT! Cast photos are this Saturday, Nov. 17 at 8:45 am. Please come with hair brushed and preferably wearing a solid-colored top (no graphics).

THANKSGIVING WEEK: THERE IS NO SAT REHEARSAL on Sat., Nov. 24. Please enjoy your four-day Thanksgiving Weekend!

CAST BIOS & ENCOURAGEMENT NOTES:  If you have not yet submitted your child’s bio and encouragement note for the program, please do so at your earliest convenience. The key is 80 WORDS OR LESS to fit the format of the program, focusing on cast members’ extracurricular activities and interests, generally their age, grade, and their C-MENT experience. Your submissions are due by Friday, November 23 to Kimberly Lynch.

ORNAMENTS:  As some of you may be getting your ornaments out, we would like to “borrow” some homemade ornaments for the tree in the show. You will get them back. We would love for each child to bring one at the Cue-to-Cue, so they can practice decorating the tree (it is part of the show).


We hope you are all advertising the play! Please invite all of your friends and family so that they can put the dates on their calendars. If you wait too long, people will be busy with other holiday activities. Invitations for you to personally deliver will be handed out this Saturday and sent to you electronically this week. Please check the C-MENT Facebook page for the show promo and share that on your own timelines. We have found that a personal invitation from you to your friends is by far the best way to build audience attendance! Thanks for your help! Note:  we also have posters that we’d love to be posted on local Starbucks bulletin boards. Let us know at rehearsal if you can post one or two!


Your child brought home a sign-up slip for our annual Subway lunch fundraiser that is happening during our Cue-to-Cue rehearsal on Sat., Dec. 1. For $7 your child will receive a delicious 6” turkey sub from Subway with an apple, bag of chips and bottled water. Please turn in your slip with payment by next Tuesday, Nov. 28 or sign up and pay online.


Please go over lines with your child as it is important now for the performers to have all the lines memorized so we can work on characterizations.

This popular package ensures 1 reserved parking spot + 4 upfront seats to the performance(s) of your choice! It’s a stress-free way to see the show…and 100% of your $50 donation benefits the C-MENT ministry. There is limited availability, so sign up today!

Thanks again for your support and dedication to the C-MENT ministry.  We are so proud of the performers. They are working hard on the music and choreography. We are here to ignite the light of Christ in our cast and audiences!!

In His Name,

Betty King, C-MENT Director
