Mother Goose Children’s Cast Rehearsal Schedule

Dear Parents,

Your child is invited to join the cast of Mother Goose this year, with Island Moving Co. (cast list attached). The performances will be at Rosecliff Mansion on March 6th, 7th and 8th and in Providence at the McVinney Auditorium we will perform Mother Goose on May 1st and 2nd in Providence at the Mc Vinney Auditorium. This is a bigger commitment than usual. Students will have to miss school on Thursday, April 30th for a school time matinee dress rehearsal in Providence. 

Rehearsals will start on January 26th.  Each role will have one rehearsal each weekend.  The rehearsal schedule is attached. (Please note the January 26th rehearsal will be dance rehearsals and then costume fittings.) There will be two rehearsals at the end of April to recall all of the dances for the May performances.

The children for this production are selected from Nutcracker cast students and some younger students at NAB. There is no audition. I have chosen the children mostly by dance level and their performance experience. Because this is an invitation situation, I ask that you speak to your children about not promoting the fact that they have been invited, as others in their classes may not have received the invitation. I would like to keep any and all hurt feelings to a minimum.

Tickets for the performance at Rosecliff are $30 for adults and $20 for children under 12. The ticket price includes the performance and photo opportunities with the characters after the performance.

Please reply to this invitation by January 13th to or call 401-847-4470.

It is imperative that everyone attend all rehearsals (schedule attached). If you have any conflict, please contact me right away.

The participation fee from each child is $40, which helps to defray the rehearsal mistress and costume costs. If you need to make special arrangements, please contact the IMC office.

We are all very excited about this production this year. I hope you will all join me, and the IMC dancers, as we bring Mother Goose to Rosecliff and then to Providence.

Warm regards,


P.S. IMC can provide you with a letter requesting the absences from school.
