  • Attendance is crucial; therefore, you must be available each Tuesday and Thursday throughout the school year. You cannot miss Musical Theatre classes due to other extra-curricular activities.
  • You must attend and perform in all rehearsals and performances listed above. A Musical production is a collaborative effort, therefore, all cast members need to be in attendance.

CASTING

NO ROLE IS EVER PRE-CAST. While the teachers of Musical Theatre are always trying to find shows that are appropriate for all students, nobody is ever given a role in advance.

The student that demonstrates the talent that best fits the role, gets the role. Regardless of age, school, etc…
