CONFLICTS AND MISSING REHEARSAL
If you are going to miss ANY of the scheduled rehearsals, please list your conflicts and anticipated absences on your audition sheet. Conflicts will be considered when casting. If you have more than 2 unexcused absences you may be asked to leave the production without refund. Excused absences have been disclosed on your audition form or discussed in advance with your directors.
WHAT TO WEAR AND BRING
Rehearsal Attire: Everyone will be learning choreography, so please wear clothes that are comfortable and easy to move in. If you’re wearing street clothes, please make sure that you have a belt for loose pants and shorts under skirts. Covered and comfortable is a general rehearsal guide.
Bring your own water bottle with your name on it.
REHEARSAL BEHAVIOR AND COMMUNITY BUILDING
Respect: We are building a community of respect and consent. Please be respectful of your peers, directors, the building, costumes, props, set pieces, etc.. This program is built to teach you how to be a collaborative member of a production team and we need your help to foster this community of respect and collaboration.
Patience: Be patient with yourself and your peers. We are all learning differently and a little kindness goes a long way. Please do not direct each other, focus on your work and what you can do to help the production. Sometimes we will have down time during rehearsal, so please bring a book, or something quiet to do while you wait. We recommend for you to spend time learning your lines, lyrics, and choreography when you have down time.
Each WCT Academy summer program involves not only kids in the cast, but families as well. We ask each family to volunteer at least 10 hours toward the Academy production. These volunteer options include helping build the set, costumes, parade float building, cast meals, backstage helping, ushering, and more.
