This page will be updated as we get things confirmed - costumes, schedule, makeup, etc., so mark it as a "favorite" and come back to check it frequently so you will be current on all the exciting plans.

  • Opening set:
    • Happy Together - love of each other, very happy to be here tonight!
      • MC: Elaine
    • All the Way - personal stories of love
      • MC:  Amy

      • MC:  No speaking, go right into solos (Cat & Elaine)
    • All the Things You Are - finding the love of your dreams
      • MC:  Elaine
    • Somebody to Love - fun, rhythmic, classic Queen song (possible joined by GQ)

  • Opening set:  Black leggings, black long-sleeved shirt that's long enough in front to cover the crotch, red long vest, black sparkly beaded scarf with rhinestone pendant, rhinestone earrings, black chorus shoes, no socks.
  • Sweet Dreams:  Same as opening set but take off the red vest.  A costume team person will give you a set of glow sticks that will be on packing tape that you'll just adhere to your clothes and take off immediately after we exit the stage.

  • Hair:  Beautiful, special hairdo (like contest)
  • Other:  All-in-one undergarments, black bra, no extra jewelry, no colored nailpolish

  • Those of you helping with the workshop should arrange for some down time to relax before the evening begins/ We want you to have the energy to perform at your very highest level.
  • Everyone should arrive with makeup and hair already done - and wearing your first set costume (less to carry).  Bring a mirror for touch-ups, and remember not to use scented products that day.

  • 4:30 - OSC in warmup room, get clothes organized, do sirens and bubbling.
  • 5:00 - OSC on stage, go thru cues, check sound
