Notes:
* Bad Parking Days On the third Tuesday of each month, parking across the street from our rehearsal site at DUPC will likely not be available because of regularly pre-scheduled Rochester City Council meetings. The city parking lot across the street from DUPC is blocked off on those days. The dates are usually the third Tuesdays of each month, but are subject to change. Please park on the street or in the nearby Hochstein lot (available after 6 p.m.). The City Parking Lot across the street from DUPC is blocked off on days when the City of Rochester Government Council meets. The 2018 meeting schedule/calendar for the Rochester City Council is published on their webpage.

Room Change** Alternate Rehearsal Rooms Rehearsals are held in the DUPC Dining Room except:
Celebration Hall: The second Tuesday each month (and occasional other days as noted) we will rehearse next door in Celebration Hall--the large room with the stage.
