Dress Rehearsal


 Located at the Crystal Grand Theatre WI DELLS


All stage hands and crew head to the stage for instructions and responsibilities/set up.


Any non-volunteer or non-dancer will be asked to leave the theatre at this time. We will have the dancers move to sit with their classes and chaperones in the areas labeled by their song title.

If you wish to stay and watch rehearsal, we will have Dress Passes for purchase for $5.


At 6:00pm, all dancers should be in their designated areas to run Dress Rehearsal at 6:30pm as if it was the show. This means full makeup (both male and female students), full costume, full lights, and full energy. There will be a 10 minute intermission between halves, just as there will be at show. Due to Covid, there is no finale this year.

In order to look like you have a face to the audience, your show makeup needs to be significantly darker than you would wear normally.

Both males and females should put on a foundation or matte bronzer to help your face look it's natural shade under the harsh, white lights and brush their the apple of their cheeks (the round part when you smile) with a natural, rosy hue.

Both boys and girls should wear a lipstick 1-2 shades darker than their lip color. No fire-engine reds, please! We want you to look natural under the lighting.

Both females and males should line their upper and lower lids with black, navy, or olive eyeliner and apply a coat of black mascara to top and bottom lashes.


Gentlemen, it is important that you wear stage makeup for Dress Rehearsal and Show. When you apply stage makeup, you look as though you are not wearing any on stage. If you do not apply stage makeup, your face will look like a white slate.


Ladies, apply a dark green or blue shadow to your lids. Purples and browns on your lids can create a "black eye" effect under the lights.


Dress rehearsal is run just like show, meaning that makeup and costumes must be show-ready.


What’s the purpose?

Dress rehearsal allows the dancers and stage crew a “run through” of the show without the audience to increase familiarity with timing and fluidity. It also gives us a general idea of the length of the show while run in order.

What time and day do I have to be there?

Please refer to the Dress Rehearsal Schedule (above). Students must be at the theatre by 6:00pm. Parents are encouraged stay with children that need assistance with costume changed as chaperones are not responsible for that.  Dress passes are $5.

At 6:30pm, the Dress Rehearsal will begin. Students must be in full costume and makeup and sitting in their designated areas with chaperones – rows of chairs are labeled by class. You may leave after your last dance is performed if you have submitted your Early Release Form.

  • NOTE: In order to leave your chaperoned area during Dress Rehearsals and Performances, dancers must have a signed Early Release Form on file.

  • This is a safety precaution. If you are debating whether or not your dancer will make it the whole show, please fill out an Early Release Form just in case. We would rather have them on file and not need them than deny your child’s release.

  • NOTE: Chaperones have been strictly instructed to release no child without a signed release form; no exception.


What should I wear?

Please refer to the costume description information located on our SHOW page. You must wear your appropriate costume, including the style of the hair, shoes, and makeup (male and female) for each dance.

Males and females both must wear heavy makeup in order to counteract the lightings “Ghost” effect on the face. See photos above for more details

DO NOT wear nail polish, toe nail polish, jewelry of any kind (including rings, earrings, etc. or glitter). All visible tattoos must be covered with make-up. No exceptions.

Who’s allowed in the theatre during Dress?

Only the students performing, those who are working the show (chaperones, etc.) and parents who have purchased Dress Passes.

All other people, including friends, family members not watching over a child, etc. are encouraged and asked to stay home.

If you are in the theatre without a Dress Pass after 6pm, you will be asked to either purchase a pass or leave the theatre.

Am I allowed to take photos or videotape?

Only non-flash photography is allowed.

Flash photography distracts dancers and creates a hazard on stage.

If you would like a professional DVD, please fill out a DropFrame Productions form in the theatre lobby.
