Thank you to everyone who came out to audition. Each season this process gets more difficult. There is so much talent in this community. Congratulations to the cast below. If you did not make it this season it may be one of many factors, limited costuming on our end, your conflicts, or we feel you need a little more training for the specific roles that you would fit into. All in all this was a solid group of dancers and it was a very difficult process.
A few announcements before the cast list. If you are casted, please place these two dates on your calendar.
Sunday, September 17, 2017 - Cast / Parent Meeting
This is a mandatory meeting for those who are casted in the production. Dancers under the age of 18 should have a parent representative at this meeting. Cast members 18 years and older can attend the meeting themselves. We will discuss upcoming events, rehearsals, costume fittings, volunteering, box office, and more.
Sunday, September 24, 2017 - Costume Fittings
All cast members will be needed this day for costume fittings. We want to get an early start on costuming as we are rebuilding some of our costumes this season. Scheduled character time slots will be available soon (latest Sunday). We have scheduled this time from 1pm - 5pm currently, but this could change due to the number of fittings. We will also ask for volunteers on Sunday, September 17 to assist in the process.
