Commitment
Students should only audition if they are able to fully commit to the show – all rehearsals and performances. Allowable absences from rehearsals are for illness and emergencies only. The musical is comparable to a team sport; we need everyone there to make it successful. Students who miss for other reasons will be dismissed from the show.

How Many Students?
We can showcase approximately 60 cast members, comprised of 7th and 8th graders only. Interested 6th graders may participate as stage crew only. We do not double cast. Cuts will be made based on audition scores.

Rehearsal Schedule
This is still being finalized, but rehearsals are typically Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-8:30, and Saturdays from 9:00-11:00. Rehearsals will be held at NASH and possibly Marshall Middle School, if needed. Extra Rehearsals may be added as we get closer to the performances.

Advertising and Cost:
We will not collect business ads, but will encourage parents to buy ad space to send wishes and notes to their children. The participation fee will be $60.00 per student.

Volunteers:
We need your help!! We will ask parents to volunteer if they are able. Some of the areas we need help include: Lobby Sales. Set building and painting, Costumes, Props, Ushersing, Help with meals, and Backstage help. All volunteers must have the district-required clearances.

Tickets:
Online ticket sales will begin about a month before the show opens through ShowClix. Parents will receive an online code for presale about a week before the public has access.
