Please read the Rehearsal Attendance Policy as all actors will be asked to adhere to these for the sake of the entire cast.

Not everyone who auditions will be able to be in the play, even if you have been in a play before.
Not everyone who is in the play will have lead roles. Everyone who auditions is a hero to us; it is scary to audition, and we are proud of all of the kids!

Don’t get discouraged if you don’t make it, or get the role you want. Even famous actors don’t get every role they audition for – Just keep on trying!

Get involved in the show however you can. There are no small roles to us, even if you don’t have a large speaking part, you will be performing, with your own unique character, personality, and character name. We need everyone to help tell this story.

Just do your best, relax, and have fun!   Break a Leg!
