WHAT ABOUT COVID?
We take everyone’s safety and well-being very seriously and work hard to make our programs a safe, welcoming place to have a great arts experience.
Masks are to be work when entering and exiting the building for everyone
Depending on the number of participants at rehearsal will determine if masks will need to be work during rehearsal. If we can be outside and achieve adequate physical distancing, we will remove masks if it is safe.
We will have hand sanitizer throughout the facility and encourage everyone to use it as needed
If any participant is ill, has a fever, or any other COVID symptoms, please stay home – notify the appropriate staff member of your absence via BAND or Google Classroom
Safety is Priority #1
WHEN & WHERE ARE THE PERFORMANCES?
Performance dates are tentatively set for July 23, 24, and 25, 2021
We say tentatively because our venue this summer is likely to be an outdoor location
This location is not yet confirmed, so we are still ironing out those details.
There is a possibility the dates may get moved to July 22, 23, and 24, with a rain date of July 25
Show Week will be week of July 19, 2021 and all cast are required to be at all rehearsals that week
WHAT DOES IT COST TO PARTICIPATE?
Thanks to our generous sponsors – Minitab, Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships, Lee Industries, and Sheetz, all cast members this summer can participate for no registration fees!
In order to cover production costs, we will be holding various fundraisers throughout the summer. These will be VERY important, we a budget for a show like this is expensive
Here is an idea of some of the costs involved in a musical production:
Licensing Royalties: $3,000
Facility/Venue Rental: $2,500
Facility Utilities: $1,000
Pit Orchestra: $2,000
APPROXIMATE PRODUCTION COSTS: $20,000
We also hope that participants will encourage people to attend the show, because ticket sales will often “make or break” a production. Ticket are $10.00, with preK and younger children FREE.
