Please sign up for the parent meeting you will attend *CLICK HERE*
You only need to come to one of these meetings and coming to a meeting doesn't commit you to participating. This is just to make sure that everyone has the necessary information about the process, expectations, and more. If you cannot make one of these meetings but still want to participate, please email our Area Coordinator, Naomi Tulp, at email@example.com.
If you do not have a family representative present for one of these meetings and you don't connect with our Show Coordinator to get the information, your child will not be able to audition for the show.
Students enrolled for the Winter Session of classes are eligible to sign up for an audition slot through the Signup Genius link. Auditions for both James and the Giant Peach Jr
. and The Addams Family
will be on Saturday, December 10th from 10am-4pm where students will bring their prepared material (see below) to present for the artistic teams of both productions. Please arrive 10 minutes before your audition slot to make sure your paperwork is complete.

The rehearsal schedule is posted below.
Please note that the following days/times will be used in this show process: Friday from 5:30-8:30pm, and Saturday from 10am-4pm. We will utilize a few select Tuesdays from 5:30-8:30pm for blocking.
Production Fees and Ticketing:
Production Fees are $225 per student.
Block Ticketing means that families are responsible for selling 10 tickets at a discounted rate of $17 (for The Addams Family) or $16 (for James and the Giant Peach Jr.) a piece to family and friends. This is done by using a personal box office link that can be shared. If families do not sell their 10 tickets by the time the show closes, the remaining dollar amount will be charged to the Family Account. More information will be coming with details!
