No dressing up for dress rehearsal IMiss N RESPONSE to questions on the T-shirts and jeans order of the day for finalists West Lothian 2011 finalists Facegroup, there is no need for girls to dress up for the dress rehearsal on Monday evening 29 November. The purpose of the dress rehearsal is for finalists to make themselves familiar with the layout of the venue at The Club, practice walking on the catwalk and have a final run through of their personality forms with the compere for the evening, Alan Scott. It’s also an opportunity to ask any last minute questions and find out exactly what being in the Grand Final of Miss West Lothian entails. One of the most important items on dress rehearsal evening is for finalists to be allocated the number which they will have on the big night. Over the
years, it has been felt that the fairest way to allocate the numbers is for girls to pick them out themselves from a hat. We normally ask for a volunteer to be the first girls out in front of the judges. There is no disadvantage or advantage in being out early, as the judges have an adjustments panel on their marking sheet, which is well used at the end of the first round, when all finalists come out together in front of the judges for one last time, after earlier coming out individually and in their groups of nine or ten. The rehearsal usually starts at about 6.30 and goes on until about 9.30 or 10pm. There is no need for girls to stay for the entire evening, although some do. It will probably be sufficient
to spend about an hour, as there will be a last minute chance for another run through on the Wednesday night. Miss West Lothian is a charity event and, as such, we are hoping for a large crowd on the evening. Girls are encouraged to bring as many supporters as they can to cheer them on, bearing in mind that mark for audience reaction. Each girl will get the chance to purchase two tickets, which will guarantee seated viewing at the front. After that, it’s first come-first served for supporters. However, the event is shown on all The Club’s huge TV screens, so everyone will be able to see the show, no matter where they are in The Club . The entry fee is £6, for a full programme of entertainment.
