Parent Pipeline

This page gives basic info for parents of the actors in ECT.

Parents -- please help your kids learn their lines. You will need to "run lines" with them, meaning you read the lines leading up to their line and they say their line. If they can't remember it, give them the first few words. If they still can't remember it, read it to them and then let them repeat it.

Information for Parents and Actors

Parents' Responsibilities
Make sure your son or daughter arrives on time for every rehearsal and is picked up promptly at the end of rehearsal.
Call the director before 4 PM if your son or daughter is sick and can’t come to rehearsal. Attendance at all rehearsals is mandatory except in the case of illness.
Help your son or daughter learn his/her lines or lyrics.
Be sure your son/daughter has any clothing or make-up items needed for his part when he arrives at shows or dress rehearsals.
Be available and willing to help on whatever production committee for which you have signed up.

About Rehearsal Times
Ending times are approximate and may vary from the times on the schedule. Please stay until you have completed all your scenes and are no longer needed. Coming late to a rehearsal throws everyone’s schedule off. Please be considerate.

Most of the costumes are furnished by ECT. However, you may need to provide a few items.  A list will be given to you if necessary.  Girls will need to provide their own mascara and lipstick.
