Rehearsal and Performance Schedules
Enter ALL rehearsal and performance dates and times on your calendar.
STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND EVERY REHEARSAL AND ARRIVE ON TIME. Absences or late arrivals cause unacceptable impact to fellow students. The ONLY exception is for illness. When a conflict arises with any other extracurricular activity (sports, etc.) we expect that the student will attend their theatre rehearsal at PPAC. Unexcused absence or lateness may result in roles or lines being assigned to other students.
Students who miss a rehearsal are required to schedule a 30-minute makeup rehearsal with the director before the next week’s rehearsal at a cost of $20. If a rehearsal is missed due to Illness, the makeup rehearsal will be held on Zoom. Students who miss rehearsals and do not schedule makeup rehearsals may have their roles reassigned to other students.
Auditions and Casting
Roles are assigned based on preparedness and fluency in reading from the script in the week 1 rehearsal, along with a video audition submitted by the end of the first rehearsal day.
Every student will receive a role with lines and singing, however roles may vary in line count. Regardless of the role your child receives, which may be an ensemble or supporting role, we expect your child to fully embrace their role and take a positive and creative view of the importance of their role to the the full production.
You will receive the audition instructions and music link by email after submitting the form below.
Assignments and At-Home Practice
Assignments will be emailed by the director. Check your email after each class for the updated assignment.
Memorization is essential to the flow of the production and because an actor cannot fully express their character until memorized.
Memorization requires consistent weekly at-home practice with a responsive reading partner. Please arrange time with your child every week to read their lines responsively and ensure their memorization.
Students who are serious about developing their theatre skills should enroll in private weekly acting and/or voice lessons alongside their participation in theatre productions. Please speak with your theater director or our school administration staff for information on private acting and voice lessons.
