No one will be in the auditorium except those called back and the production staff.

How is rehearsal structured?
We usually will begin rehearsal with the entire cast starting at 1:00 and release groups and ensembles as the day progresses until we are left with leads only for the remaining time. There will be dinner/lunch breaks scheduled for students who will need to remain till 7:00p.m. A detailed schedule will be provided weekly!
Attendance and Absenteeism
Attendance is mandatory and will be taken every day. Students will be allowed 2 unexcused absences. If students have more than two unexcused absences, they will be dropped from the musical. Absences will only be excused with an email or call from a parent at least one hour before rehearsal begins.
Theatre Experience Intensive Show Fee
This production will function as a Theatre Experience Intensive. The fee of $150.00 is due to the SJCA business office prior to the first rehearsal. Students will not be able to participate in rehearsal until the fee is paid to the business office.
There will be personal costume accessories required for cast members. Items such as shoes, undergarments, etc. will need to be provided by the family. If you need assistance please reach out to the director.
