Hello, friends. We receive a lot of questions about how often and where we train for the Sinag-tala Theatrical Revue, how much time participants have to commit, how late we rehearse, if we charge anything, etc. Perhaps you’ve wondered about those things yourself. Well, to help you out, we’re forwarding some useful information. Please take a minute or two to go over the attached General Information About the 2009 Sinag-tala Training Program so you’ll learn more about what it’s going to be like to be in the ST2009 company. The bottom line is, it’s a lot of work for everyone but the payback is worth much more than you invest. And we’re open to working things out with those who have special circumstances.
ALL singers, dancers, actors and musicians MUST attend the SINGING AUDITIONS on July 10 or 11. No appointment necessary. Inexperienced and advanced performers alike are welcome. Be prepared to sing any song of your choice. Bring CD or live accompaniment if desired.
The dance auditions are for ages 12 and above only. Be ready to stretch, turn, bend and jump. No high heels, boots, sandals, flip-flops, baggy pants, short shorts, skirts, lowriders or tight or revealing clothing. Sweats, longer shorts, regular-fit jeans, sneakers and casual shoes are ok. Bring ballet, tap and/or jazz shoes also if you have them. Workshops and rehearsals begin on August 1. Sinag-tala 2009 will be presented on December 4, 5, and 6.

Hello. As you may be aware, Sinag-tala: A Theatrical Revue is in its 20th season this year. Naturally, this milestone is very meaningful to a lot of people, so it’s going to be celebrated in some huge, meaningful way.
But it’s vital that this anniversary celebration belong to its alumni because they created the history we’re going to acknowledge. To us, an alumnus is anyone who has been associated with Sinag-tala: A Theatrical Revue for one year or more. That means you or someone else in your family.
So we’re making this effort to reach as many individuals and families we can whom we consider to be alumni. We know this first e-mail is touching only the tip of the iceberg but we hope it will lead to the countless other alumni with whom we have lost touch over the years. We definitely hope it will encourage all alumni to help us make this 20th anniversary as memorable and meaningful as it truly deserves to be.
Kindly do us a big favor by taking just a very brief moment to answer and return by e-mail the two short surveys linked below. They are designed to update our alumni database and allow alumni to have a say in what the celebration should be like. Now some say that most people don’t like opening e-mail attachments, much less surveys. But we hope you’ll agree that as special as the Theatrical Revue has been to the community, the chance to be involved in its commemoration would simply be too special to pass up.
We hope to hear from you by July 8 so we can get the ball rolling. If you know of other alumni we may have omitted from this distribution, please pass this message along. Most of all we’re excitedly looking forward to hearing from you, period. And not too far down the road, seeing you! We’d love it if you could sneak in a line or two telling us how you’ve been. Thank you so much for your time.
