The next few shows are up on the first post of the schedule, lovelies! And everything for Grease will be up in about half an hour!

NOTICE TO ALL SHANACHIE BALLET MEMBERS:

The Spring Gala is only a few short weeks away, running from June 5th - June 24th. As always, this is the time when you get to choose what dance you'd like your character to perform, so start thinking about it and drop me a PM with what you'd like your character to do with that. You might also want to offer a few choices in case of duplicates. If you have a regular dance partner, feel free to include them, too. Please only choose ballet numbers for your character's featured dance, though it does not have to be classical.

If I do not hear back from you by the end of May, at the latest, I will be forced to choose something for you, and I would prefer everyone choose something for themselves.

Also, if there is anyone whose character is a professional ballet dancer or who's had professional training and would like to join the ballet for the event, drop me a PM with what you'd like your character to do, and we'll work something out.

Thanks, everyone! :)

This is just a reminder that I will be posting the info about the ballet's Spring Gala next weekend. If you have not done so already, please let me know if your character intends to take part and what dance you would like him/her to perform. This goes for both members of the Shanachie and guest dancers. So far, I've only heard from two PCs, and there is plenty of room for more, so feel free to PM me. I don't bite. Promise! :)

Hey, folks!

The first post in the Calendar thread has been updated, so you can see what's on for the next couple of months. Nothing is on this week, because the brain behind the owner messed up her dates when she made the schedule to begin with for this year. Look on it as a paid holiday!

So, my fabulous guys and gals and general wonderflubblinesses!

Auditions are over for another year, and we have a fantastic mix of old and new to grace your (virtual) stage with for the next twelve months. All who auditioned, please check your PMs - your acceptance letters have been mailed. If I missed someone, tell me!

Icons will be ordered when the Submit Tool is working again, I won't forget.

The first post in the Calendar thread has been updated, so if you want to see what's coming up for the rest of 2017, go take a peek! The STARS are shining - this time, with me actually having added the profile links in for the PCs involved.

Hope you've all had a brilliant summer! Hugs and kisses from the Shanachie!

Okay, people! I'm running out of ideas for ballets, and I need to pick a few for the upcoming season. We've done pretty much all of the popular ones, as well as a few obscure ones. So, feel free to PM me with any suggestions, and I will take them into consideration. I prefer classical ballets, but I'm open to doing a few contemporaries, as well. I also don't mind repeat performances, so long as they're not repeated in the same year. Keep in mind that they have to be ballets I can actually find information about online as to synopsis and cast members. Thanks, everyone!

Hi all!

Just letting you guys know, I've made a change on the Calendar - the end of year show has been changed from The Ballad of Robin Hood to Peter Pan Goes Wrong. ;)

NOTE TO ALL BALLET TROUPE MEMBERS

Due to some personal scheduling conflicts, I have made a small change to the Shanachie calendar with regard to the ballet schedule, as follows.

The Spring Gala has been moved to summer and in its place, the ballet will be performing Coppelia.

23rd April to 12th May
Coppelia
Shanachie Ballet Company

25th June to 14th July
Summer Gala
Shanachie Ballet Company

The Summer Gala is the time when YOU get to choose what dance you'd like your character to perform, so start thinking about it and drop me a PM with what you'd like your character to do with that. You might also want to offer a few choices in case of duplicates. If you have a regular dance partner, feel free to include them, too.

Thanks, everyone, and looking forward to hearing from each of you! :)

Regarding Twelve Angry Men, we were a little bit late posting this one, as it was a particularly difficult play to cast. It should be noted that we "borrowed" some cast members from the theater group for this play. With the exception of Yassidy, the ladies get some time off this time around. There's a reason for that, but you will have to wait a few weeks to find out why. :)

TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE SHANACHIE BALLET:

It's almost time for the ballet's Summer Gala (6/25-7/14). If you have not contacted me with a choice for your character's ballet number, please do so ASAP. This is your opportunity to choose what piece you'd like to see your character perform, so don't miss out! Just drop me a quick PM. I check them daily.

And thank you all for reading, writing, and otherwise participating in the Shanachie! We've been a little busy these last few weeks, but we will be posting more shows for you very soon. Promise! :)

Father's Day
« Reply #239 on: June 23, 2018, 03:44:21 PM »
Just a quick note... My apologies for missing Father's Day this year for the WHAM! 101.1FM: Request Line.

My father passed away a couple of months ago. I have been spending more time with my mom since then, which is probably also a factor in my less active status online. But anyway, I just wanted to make that small comment just so people don't think I was maliciously overlooking Father's Day. I just didn't have it in me. But, as always, the Request Line is open for anyone at any time for any occasion, so don't feel like Yas has to start it up if you'd like to request anything. :)

Oh, and if anyone asks ICly why WHAM! didn't do a Father's Day Special, Yas will just claim that she got the months mixed up on her calendar and didn't realize it until it was too late, but she's got an extra special Thanksgiving Day Special all ready to go. ;)
