HOW TO SECURE AN APPOINTMENT:

First, read the FAQ section. Since we’re working with a NEW adaptation this year, there are some new things to know including a slightly different performance schedule. See critical dates below.

Important dates:

1st rehearsal: Tuesday, November 11
Tech Day:  Sunday, November 23
Run:   November 29-December 20

Performances are:

Monday-Friday  10:00am matinees (December 1-19)
Saturday  2:00 and 4:00pm (same as last year)
No Sunday performances
No weeknight performances

Rehearsals:

Student actors (grades K-12) must be available for afternoon rehearsals during week and all day on weekends. Rehearsals are for 2.5 weeks only. Must also be available for weekday matinees beginning December 1. Because we double- and sometimes triple-cast children, most children can expect to perform 2-3 weekday matinees each week of the run in addition to the regularly scheduled performances on Saturdays.

Adults (outside of high school) must be available for rehearsals for up to 6 hours (12-6pm, 1-7pm or 2-8pm -- exact times TBA shortly) during the week and all day on weekends. Since we won’t be double-casting adult roles, adults must be able to commit to ALL performances. This is a great résumé booster and you can earn EMC points toward your AEA card.
