I’m about to post a slight rant for the day. Stella is in her first year of ballet, and the show is next week. It’s quite the production, including dancers from age 3-18, and this year’s show is Cinderella. I’m sure it will be wonderful, and we even purchased 8 tickets in the reserved seating section for Stella’s first ever performance… all 90 seconds of it. Ha!
We have already received a ton of emails regarding tech rehearsal Tuesday, dress rehearsal Thursday, and the shows on Friday & Saturday, but I just received the following email and it made my blood totally boil. I can use a damn drill better than a lot of men I’m sure. I want to reply to the email with a snarky comment about how it’s unfortunate that she just cut her volunteer pool in half for no good reason, but I’m also a first time ballet Mom and don’t want to get my kid in hot water with the teacher just because I’m pissed off at her stupidity. What would you do?
Subject: Dad Help
I need some “dad” help with our upcoming show!
1. This Sunday
We need 1 dad in [xxxxx] to help us put the house set piece together. I’ve recruited 1 man, but we need 1 more. Will probably take an hour. Knowledge of how to use a drill is required.
starting at about 11, we need 1-2 men who know how to use drill to help us put the set together. Will take 1 – 1.5 hrs. This includes the coach, the house, and the flats.
1:00 We need 3 dads to help hang the backdrop with the pavilion staff. This will take about an hour.
I know most of you are working during the day on Thursday, but unfortunately it’s the only time we can get into the Pavilion before dress rehearsal. If you have any time, we would so appreciate it.
Thanks for considering!
