More information from the application:

We are so glad for your interest in theater. Accepting a role in a play is a big commitment. Depending on the role, it takes 1 to 3 nights of rehearsal a week for

about 7 weeks and then rehearsal every day starting the Saturday prior to the production. Rehearsals will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. There may be an occasional Saturday rehearsal called if needed. Principal characters will normally rehearse all 3 nights a week. Minor roles will rehearse 1–3 nights a week.

There will be a one-time participation fee due at the first cast meeting on Tuesday, November 16. We do not want this to be a hardship on any family or cause any child not to be able to participate due to financial reasons. Please contact the directors if there is a financial concern. Participation Fee: Option 1: $60 includes script, music, & costume Option 2: $75 includes script, music, costume, & cast t-shirt. Shoes and basic stage makeup will be provided by the cast member.

Regular attendance at rehearsals to learn songs, lines, and choreography is required to be in the show. We understand that cast members sometimes have to miss due to an OCCASIONAL conflict or illness. However, if your child is cast, it is your responsibility to check for conflicts once the rehearsal schedule is published. 

If they are already committed to other activities during their scheduled rehearsal times that are not flexible and will not allow them to be at rehearsal on a regular basis, it is best to decline the part before starting. If the child accepts the role and has excessive absences not due to emergencies or illness, it will be necessary to release them from the cast. Any payments made toward scripts, t-shirts, or costumes WILL NOT be refunded. 

Cast list and cast meeting will be posted at the completion of auditions. The 1st rehearsal of the year is scheduled for January 3rd at 6:00 at F.E. Burleson Elementary School.
