makeup info for all cast members

Our make-up co-director, Gentry Haffa, has the following information for all cast members:

If you have never been in Scrooge before, you should order a makeup kit. These kits contain foundation that is specifically made for the theatrical stage. If you’re a Scrooge veteran, you may want to make sure you know where your kit is and that it is still usable. Most of the time, one kit per family is acceptable as long as you don’t mind sharing. 

There will be extra kits in the make-up room if you would like to use one. However, they are shared among everyone.

EVERYONE ON STAGE WEARS MAKEUP…men included. So, it’s not a question of whether you will need a kit or not. It’s whether you want to share with others. (This is mainly a question of hygiene:) Most people like to have their own, or one with their own family.

Makeup kits are $23.00 and are prepaid only.

Gentry will be at practice next Thursday, Nov 21 at 6:30pm.

Please bring your makeup money in cash or a check made payable to Faith Assembly of God. (Sorry, but she will not have change available.)

**If you pay online, please make sure to let her know or she won’t know to order you a kit.** 

If you are unable to come to this practice, please text or call Gentry at 239-339-3566 to make other arrangements. 

Makeup kits not paid for in advance (or arrangements not made with Gentry prior to Thursday) will not be ordered. 

scrooge tonight; rtb/wys position charts available

It’s an all-choreography night tonight (November 12) as we rehearse RTB, WYS, and People in the Auditorium beginning promptly at 7pm. (Kids will be upstairs rehearsing Schoolroom, too.)

The Position Charts are now available for Ring the Bells and Whaddaya Say. These charts show: 1) who you are with, 2) where you go, 3) when, during the songs. View or download the pdf’s on the Choreography page.

The cast lists are currently being updated to show the groups as well. These should be finished…soon.

Cast list revision posted

We have posted the latest revision to the cast list, catching up on some people who were missed and correcting some small errors in song assignments.

The cast list also shows which songs you are in. Remember, if you are listed in a song (and you are NOT part of the Chorus), then you are NEEDED when we rehearse the song.

View the updated cast lists at

And welcome to some new names we added to this year’s cast: Ezekiel Horshor, Aiden Jenkins, Bennet Peterson, Greg Pounders, and Caroline Ramp.

One more schedule change; choreography workshop next sunday!

We’ve moved things around one more time (we’re trying to make the best use of your time), so we’ve published one more schedule change.

This will NOT affect most of you…but PAWNBROKER, WINSTON, and PERSON #1, PERSON #2, PERSON #3, PERSON #4 should take special note! We’ve moved your rehearsal from this Tuesday and relocated it to November 21.

This is also a chance to remind you that there will be a Choreography Workshop next Sunday, October 20, after the second service, in the Auditorium. This is an optional workshop, but will be a very good way to get ready for our first Townspeople Rehearsal on the 22nd. It will also be very useful for you if this is your first year in Scrooge.

ALL LINES MUST BE MEMORIZED AT THIS POINT. From this point on, scripts will not be allowed as we rehearse. (Bring them for reference and to make notes, though.)

SPEAKING OF SCRIPTS…there is also a revised script available. This is just an update to fix some typos and formatting issues. (It’s now only 51 pages long, instead of 52:)

If you have any issues or questions, please let us know. We’re praying for you and what God is going to do through you!

Revised schedule

The Scrooge Production Calendar has been revised as of October 7, 2019. (PLEASE THROW YOUR OLD CALENDARS/SCHEDULES AWAY!)

Please check the schedule carefully. Times and days may have changed for some of your rehearsals. (Some have even been eliminated altogether.)

And please stay connected. Last-minute changes due to sickness and other unforeseen circumstances are always possible. Please call or text Pastor Tim if you are not able to make your scheduled rehearsal.
