Students accepted from this round of auditions must be available for rehearsals on Monday and Wednesday afternoons during the summer from June 23 - August 1.  Students may request permission to miss one week of rehearsals in summer only, subject to the Artistic Director's approval.

Gypsies, Chinese Sticks, Princesses, and Ladies-in-Waiting also audition in the fall, on Sunday, Sept 7.  These are some smaller roles that require less rehearsal time.  

After that audition, all roles rehearse on weekends only - Friday, Saturday, and/or Sunday - depending on the role(s) the student is cast in, until we go into the theatre in late November, when rehearsals are on weeknights.
