Tips to Help You Prepare for a Successful Evening:

Before You Arrive

✓ Bring your tickets.

✓ Make sure your child is hydrated! Pack a refillable water bottle and label with your child’s name.

✓ For 2nd performance students, make sure your child eats well before changing into costume.

✓ Bring a labeled backpack or bag to hold your child’s personal belongings (e.g., water bottle, snack, coat, etc.).

✓ Send along a book, game, or other quiet activity for your child and label with your child’s name.

✓ Students from several classrooms will change into costumes together in one room, so please make sure your child wears appropriate undergarments & clothing before arriving to the venue. See links on this page detailing costume and hairstyle specifications for your child’s class.

✓ We reuse costumes in future performances. Talk to your child about practicing good costume care. No eating, sliding, climbing, or roughhousing while wearing them.

When You Arrive

Be on time to the performance venue to help your child change into costume and take photos. Allow yourself 10 minutes to find parking.

Help your child change (2nd performance) into costume and organize any personal belongings (e.g., jacket, clothes, etc.) in a labeled backpack. As the rooms are crowded, please leave the room (unless you are a classroom helper) after your child has changed.

No photography allowed in the changing rooms.

Enjoy refreshments courtesy of the PTA in the Field House between shows.

Seats are limited and we want to welcome and accommodate everyone who wants one, so please observe a few requests:

    • Bring your tickets.
    • Do not leave any open seats in rows or store coats and bags on empty seats.
    • If you plan to leave the performance early, consider sitting in the balcony.
    • The right balcony is reserved for student performers.

✓ For the safety of our performers and general enjoyment of the audience, no flash photography or video recording will be allowed during the performances.

✓ A free, professional-grade video download of the entire performance will be shared with our Jie Ming commmunity after the show, along with a group photo of each class on stage.

After the Performance

✓ Students will return to their designated classroom after their class performs to change out of their costumes and stay with their teacher. If you can help students change out of their costumes, please sign up to do so. Volunteers should meet the class after they perform outside the auditorum on the left side.

✓ You must promptly pick up your child at the designated classroom at the end of the performance. Students will not be released early. Only your child’s teacher will be allowed to dismiss your child to your care.

✓ Students and teachers have been preparing for months. Celebrate their hard work, enjoy the show, and engage with other families!

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out directly to your teacher or classroom parent on Konstella.

Parking

The entrance to the auditorium area is on the west side of the school off of Edgcumbe Rd. The main school parking lot tends to fill up, so please allow 10-15 minutes to find parking. This will give you time to help your child change into costume and take photos. Overflow parking is available at the Edgcumbe Presbyterian Church just west of the school parking lot (see map below).

Please note: do not arrive prior to 3:30 PM as the high school parking lot will be crowded with high school students leaving the campus.
