All Understudies / Swings will have at least one scheduled performance.  Understudy / Swings should attend all rehearsals for the roles they are learning.

Rehearsal Information

Rehearsals will begin the week of February 17th and the schedule for that week is included below.  We will be working hard over the next several days to create a long term rehearsal schedule.

Thank you for your patience as we work to coordinate the schedules and conflicts of a large cast and production team.

If you have any questions, please email [email protected]

Additionally, everyone has a scheduled time slot next week to come in for costume measurements.  You will also pick up your script and vocal book at this time.  For parents of younger actors, costume measurements will not take long.  We recommend waiting for your child, rather than leaving and coming back for pick up.
