*CHILDREN'S CASTING

Not everyone is guaranteed a role after their audition. Unfortunately there is a limited number of spaces, and the number of students cast varies from show to show. However, if you are cast, here are some things to expect:

  • You must be at all rehearsals for which you are scheduled. If an absence is necessary, it must be clearly stated on your audition submission form. Conflicts will be taken under consideration during casting. Any cast member missing more than two rehearsals may not be able to participate in the show. Conflicts (other than illness) presented after casting will not be allowed.

  • Leaving early or arriving late is considered a conflict, and must be approved prior to casting.

  • You must commit to approximately 40 hours of rehearsal time before move-in and dress rehearsal week.

  • You must attend all dress/tech rehearsals.

  • You must be at all performances.

  • You must pay a Production Fee  of $150 which includes a T-shirt, a poster, and 2 tickets to any performance.

  • Your parents must agree to attend two parent meetings and to serve approximately 10 hours on a production committee. (Depending on show)

Parents must agree to the following: 

I realize that if my child is chosen for the cast, I will be responsible to make sure he/she attends every performance and every rehearsal for which he/she is scheduled. In case of illness, I will notify the Stage Manager in advance. In order to ensure the quality of rehearsals and the production, I understand that two or more absences may result in dismissal from the show. I understand that I will be charged a $150 Production Fee per child. I am also responsible for personal items (i.e., shoes, tights, make-up). I understand that I will be required to attend two parent meetings and to volunteer 10 hours as part of a parent committee.
