Costume Letter

Thursday, November 7, 2019


Dear Families,


We are only 5 weeks away from show time!  By now, your child should be
off script and be able to speak and/or sing their part by memory. 
Please practice with your child at home to make sure their lines/songs
are memorized.  


I have heard from many cast members that they have made or have
purchased their costumes.  If you have yet to do so, here are some
ideas for each character. Costumes are to come into school in a
LABELLED bag by NOVEMBER 18th!
If your child is playing 2 characters, just wearing their main costume is
fine.


Drummers:  White t-shirt with red stripes painted horizontally across
the front, black pants/leggings


Pipers:  White t-shirt, black leggings.  


Lords-a-leaping: white t-shirt, black pants/leggings


Ladies Dancing:  
6 hip hop dancers (red/green plaid shirts left open with a white/black
t-shirt underneath, ball cap/bandana/toque, black pants/leggings,
running shoes) - (Sydney, Reese, Nika, Lexi, Eva, Ella), 
3 Ballerina’s should wear their white ballet tights, black tank top
bodysuit and ballet shoes (Anna, Andreea, Brennah)


Maids a-milking:  Dressed like peasants (neutral coloured dress, white apron)


Swans a-swimming: All in white or combination of white and black.
Feather boas are a good addition! 


Geese a-laying: Dressed in brown, black and white.  Feel free to glue
some feathers on! 


Golden Ring Holders:  Dressed in a yellow t-shirt, black pants


Calling Birds: Perhaps a blue jay (dressed in blue and white clothing),
headband with blue and white feathers glued to it. You may also choose
to be different types of birds.


French Hens:  Dressed in a black and white striped t-shirt with black pants.
Red feather boa and black beret (You can get these at Party City).


Turtle Doves: They should look as much alike as possible, as they are
inseparable.  White t-shirt with feathers glued on the front and a
headband with feathers glued on. 


Party the Partridge: A comic character who should look more harried
as the musical progresses.  She might have feathers sticking out all over
the place and funny tail feathers that get in her way.


Operator: dressed in “office wear” with glasses, wearing hair in a tight bun.


Cows: You can purchase cow “onesies” at a party store (Party City). 
Costume should have a hood with ears.


If you have any questions, please send me an email (patti.dsouza@ocsb.ca)
or call the school and leave me a message.  (613-831-1853)
