WHAT TO EXPECT
It's your first show with Outcry Youth Theatre. Don't stress! Here's what you need to know to have a great experience.
Attendance is expected at all rehearsals to which a student is called. Conflicts with all rehearsals, tech week, and performances must be provided by callbacks or absences will not be accepted. You will receive a conflict sheet at your audition. This form is mandatory for you to be considered for casting. It must be emailed to the director or brought to callbacks. The amount of conflicts will be considered and accepted at the discretion of the director.
A 50% tuition deposit is required by the first rehearsal once a production has been cast and your role has been accepted. Remaining tuition is due the fourth weekday rehearsal.
Scholarships are considered on a rolling basis when funding is available. Scholarship funds are limited and depending on the source of the funds, may be available only for residents of certain cities or counties, casting demands of a script, or selected classes. All scholarship applications must be received before the second rehearsal to be considered.
Actors and their families will be given a form to purchase tickets in advance with cash or a check, avoiding the online service charge. Tickets will also be available online (with a small service charge) and at the door (credit card sales at the door will incur a small service charge).
Cast must be completely off book (lines, blocking, songs, and choreography memorized) by the off book dates listed on the rehearsal calendar, which will be provided at the first rehearsal.
Costumes are not provided. They are the responsibility of the cast member. A volunteer in charge of costumes will communicate with you the director's vision of what your costume should look like, and costume pieces can be purchased, rented, borrowed, or created from scratch.
Parent volunteers are absolutely essential to the success of each production! There are a wide range of volunteer opportunities for parents, both big and small. We require a small commitment from our parents, but hope you will consider volunteering more! When we all work together to create an amazing show it is a truly magical experience!
