Rehearsals

 Start on Tuesday, January 16th

Rehearsals will be held anywhere from 5pm - 9pm on Monday - Thursday nights depending on an actor's part and age.

Starting on February 23rd and 24th we will add Friday and Saturday practices for more rehearsal time as we  get closer to opening night.

Please make sure you are aware of the time commitment before signing up your child for this show. 

When putting on a show, especially with limited time, the commitment and flexibility of the cast is extremely important. We expect our cast to be committed to the show, which is only fair to the directors and other cast members. If you are unable to commit the amount of time required for this show, we ask that you please refrain from signing up and join us for another show!

**Cast members must be able to attend all dress rehearsals and show times in order to be cast in the show

Attendance

Dress rehearsals and performances are mandatory. If your child cannot attend any day between March 11th and 24th they will not be able to be a part of our cast.

For rehearsals, any non-sick or non-emergency absences must be communicated at time of registration by correctly filling out the availability section of the Registration Form. If cast members have more than three absences that were not marked on the registration form, then they may be removed from the show - with no refund.

Auditions

For this show, we will be having all auditions done over video. All videos will be due by January 5th and we will be having callbacks, if necessary, on January 8th and/or 9th. 

In the video, prospective cast members must state their name and age loudly and clearly before starting their audition. Videos must contain the following in order to be considered:

  • A short monologue

  • A 1 minute song snippet   

         *We prefer acapella, but if there is an accompaniment, it must not have someone else singing or have music louder than the child.

  • A short choreographed dance

Videos must be filmed in a well lit area where the child can be seen and heard clearly.

If any of these are not included, or done incorrectly, the audition may not be considered. 

If a parent/guardian fails to attend a parent meeting, the child may not audition and their video will not be considered.

When your registration form is complete and your invoice is paid, we will send you a link to a Google Form in order to upload your audition video.

For more information about how to prepare your audition please refer to the "How to Audition" page listed below

Parent Meetings

As referenced above, attending a parent meeting is mandatory. Once the forms are submitted, you will receive and email with parent meeting information and sign up. Reminder: failure to attend a parent meeting will result in your child's audition video not being considered and they will not be cast.

Parents will have two opportunities to attend a parent meeting: Wednesday, January 10th and Thursday, January 11th at 7pm. Be prepared to be available for one of those dates when you sign up for Willy Wonka.

Parents will also be asked to sign two forms at the parent meeting: our parent contract and photo release. If you would like to read them over before the meeting you may view them via the links below. Do not sign these online, you will sign them in person at the parent meeting.

Sign Up Requirements

In order to register for the production, the following Google Form must be filled out and submitted. The form has three parts: Registration, Availability, and About Me*. All three forms must be finished in order to submit the form. You may not leave any section to be completed "later".  Everything must be filled out in order for your child to be a part of the cast.

*The "About Me" section is supposed to be written by the future cast member, so have them nearby for that section. 

After forms are submitted, keep an eye out for an email with parent meeting and audition info

Reminder: failure to attend a parent meeting will result in your child's name being removed from the audition list.

Parents will have two opportunities to attend a parent meeting: Wednesday, January 10th and Thursday, January 11th at 7pm. Be prepared to be available for one of those dates when you sign up for Willy Wonka.

Payment is due at the parent meeting in form of check, card, or Venmo. Be prepared to pay tuition when you arrive at the meeting.*
