Participants rehearse a fully staged and costumed children’s musical and will perform for thousands of people. Auditions are not required for participation but are necessary for casting leading roles. Membership in the Children’s Theater program is open to students who have completed Rising Stars or who are finishing 8th grade. Rehearsals are held in the morning from 9 am to 12 noon and in the afternoons from 1 to 4:30 pm. There will be one weekend rehearsal for each show.
Participants attend when they are needed for rehearsals. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be given at the first cast meeting for each show. Parents are expected to help their child assume responsibility for attending rehearsals and learning lines. Please do not schedule family vacations, camps, summer school or medical appointments during rehearsal times.
Participants must be 14 years of age or finished 8th grade by June 15, 2018. Members who have completed one full session of the Rising Stars Program may enter Children’s Theater at age 13 but are limited to one show. Participants will be assigned to a cast after registration and will be notified by mail the week of April 16. Please do not call the Box Office for assignments. First meetings for each cast are on the first date listed below.
