Every child will have a specific role. Not all roles are the same size, but anyone who auditions will have a place. This may include our ensemble, which is an important role in any show.
The goal with our production of ITW is more than just to put on a good show, we are hoping to build a mentorship theatre program. This rehearsal process is set up like our classes, meaning everyone will be learning the same skills regardless of role. We are also having students learn about the production and tech side of a performance, including rehearsals dedicated to stagecraft as a whole.
This is why the fee is non-refundable. We have faith that every child will enjoy their time while also learning about all the aspects that go into a full length production.
