Call backs:
There will be required call backs for finalists on Sunday March 04, which likely will include dancing and movement. Following your audition, we will let you know if we would like you to return for the call back audition the following day.

Payment:

Children cast in shows receive a small performance stipend and a limited number of complimentary tickets.

Availability:

We appreciate that this is a large time commitment for young performers and their families. To be considered, you must be available for all rehearsals and all performances. Shows are not double cast, and not all roles have understudies. We are unable to accommodate schedule conflicts. . Every effort is made to ensure as little school missed as possible, but some missed school will be unavoidable If offered a part, it will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure that their child’s school is amenable to all missed school time. Those young performers who are offered parts will be given time to talk with school officials to see if missed days of school are permissible before accepting.
You will also want to consider transportation arrangements, as this commitment will affect the schedule of your family.
