What make-up should my child wear?

 

Students 8 & younger need to wear a foundation to help with the shine from the lights, mascara, blush, and red lipstick. Students that are older than 8, need to wear foundation, blush, neutral eyeshadow (browns), black eyeliner, mascara, and red lip stick.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What should their hair be like?

 

A list was in your Family Folder & we will add the list to the bottom of this page.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What if my child has a fast change or needs help with a change?
You are more than welcomed to talk to Ms. Roxanne about that. She will have dressing stations set up backstage. If your child needs help in the dressing room, you can just come back real quick to help and then go back out into the audience to watch.

Yes. It is MANDATORY.
