Have fun! Learn something new! 

These are our two main goals for our summer together. As directors, we will provide you with the tools for an awesome show and you get to use those tools to make it incredible! We are very excited to get started, there are just a few things that are important to us, the group, and the show that we want to share with you!

What to expect from rehearsal

REHEARSAL DATES AND TIME

Rehearsals are Monday – Friday from 2-5 p.m. Your directors will arrive at the theatre no later than 1:45 each day. If possible, please do not drop off before 1:45 so we can ensure safety and supervision. If you need to drop your child off early, please your directors or stage manager know. 

TECH WEEK REHEARSALS (The week of the show) 

Tech week rehearsals will be extended from 2-6 p.m.

CONFLICTS AND MISSING REHEARSAL

If you are going to miss ANY of the scheduled rehearsals, please write that down on your audition sheet. You may miss up to 2 rehearsals due to the short and speedy process of this production. If you are going to be absent for more than 2 rehearsals, it greatly affects the production experience for you and for others and we will have to ask you to withdraw from the production and join us next season. 

FAMILY VOLUNTEERING

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 summer production. These volunteer options include helping build the set, costumes, parade float building, cast meals, backstage helping, ushering, and more. 

Signup Coming Soon!

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.
