NEW FOR THIS UPDATE: IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR REHEARSALS THIS WEEKEND (1/11 and 1/12); REVISED CASTING LISTS BY SEGMENT; AND PRELIMINARY REHEARSAL SCHEDULE

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR REHEARSALS THIS WEEKEND
As indicated at rehearsals last weekend, there is an event at the fairgrounds through this weekend that requires changes to our normal routine. These changes primarily affect the rehearsal on Saturday, January 12, but some affect Sunday as well.

PARKING: On Saturday - NO ONE, NO ONE, NO ONE will be able to enter the grounds with their cars! EVERYONE, EVERYONE, EVERYONE must park in the parking lot for the Courthouse off of Oasis Street (the opposite side of the fairgrounds from the usual Arabia street entrance). We must cross Oasis and walk up the block to enter through Gate 9 walk around the arena to get to the pageant stage. On Sunday, we should be able to park by Gate 4 again (in front of Taj Mahal building) and walk through to the stage.

ENTRY PASSES: Everyone that is required to be at rehearsals on Saturday and Sunday should have gotten a paper pass that will be the only way you will be able to enter the grounds during the event (this should only be required on Saturday, but those coming on Sunday may want to have the pass with them just in case).

CHECK BACK: Friday night or first thing Saturday to see if there are any more notes.

LUNCH: There will be plenty of down time to eat, but not necessarily a defined lunch period to leave and get food and eat.  Bring food for lunch and plenty of water.
