Frequently Asked Questions:

Who can participate in CAST?

CAST is committed to casting incoming high school freshman through just graduated high school seniors. No roles are pre-cast. 

Can I be in both productions?

Individuals interested in participating in both productions this summer, are eligible to act in only ONE production. That means that an individual may ACT in one production and CREW in another.  Individuals who are interested in serving in a technical capacity for both shows may crew for each show, but may only serve in a design leadership position for one.

Is there a fee to participate?

There is an activity fee of $100 to participate. The fee covers a participation fee, tech week meals, a t-shirt, and show related souvenirs and gifts.  Students participating in both shows will receive a discount and owe only $150.  The activity fee is due within the first two weeks of rehearsals. Individuals seeking financial assistance or scholarships should contact us directly.

When will rehearsals be?

Rehearsals are typically held in the late afternoon or evenings.  The specific rehearsal schedule for each show will not be determined until auditions are complete.  We typically respect the need for students who work over the summer by allotting daytime hours for jobs or summer classes. We also understand the scheduling conflicts that arise with summer vacations.  We do our best to honor and work with the students' declared conflicts. Only 2 unexcused absences are permitted. The first rehearsals for both shows will be Tuesday, May 16  from 6-9:30pm at a location TBD.
