All actors will not be called at every rehearsal and vacations and summer conflicts will be taken into consideration when casting. Every effort is made to send the children home as early as possible, but there can be some late evenings during tech week (Aug 2-6).

OTHER OPPORTUNITIES: We rely on volunteers for a number of tasks throughout our production. Backstage and technical assistance come from the community. We could also use help with costumes and set building. This show features a deaf character. So, we are in need of rehearsal assistance in sign language and communication with the deaf community. Please let us know if you have skills in those areas and join us in this exciting summer event!
