Rehearsal: Monday, May 22nd 4:15 - 6:30PM at BMS (estimate)

  • Students who can not attend the rehearsal can still participate in the show. Please email Tara Doyle (tdoyle@westport.k12.ct.us) if you know you will not be attending rehearsal.
  • Performers will be assigned an act number and a practice time once registration closes. Practice times will be posted (here) on the KHS Variety show webpage.
  • Rehearsal time is used to test microphones, organize stage positions, and test music. Not all performers perform their entire act through. The main purpose of this practice time is to test music, microphones, and the logistics of prop placement and removal.
  • Group acts should make plans to arrive at rehearsal together.

  • Any student playing an instrument can skip rehearsal if they are already comfortable performing on stage.
