OTHER IMPORTANT DRESS REHEARSAL INFORMATION:
Drivers, DO NOT take the Anthony Wayne Trail (it's difficult to turn onto Key St from the Trail).  Arrive 15-30 minutes prior to your call time—parking is sometimes difficult. You should be in full stage make-up and hair.  Locate your dressing room. Change into your costume (if you are in more than one number, change into your FIRST costume). If you have fast changes, set your costume(s). Be ready to get crackin’ at your designated call time!
