PARTICIPATING IN AN SYT PRODUCTION

ACTIVITY FEE:  If cast, there is a $25 activity fee to participate in an SYT production. The fee covers cast party expenses, director and stage manager gifts, makeup expenses, and the tech Sunday meal.


REHEARSAL SCHEDULE:  For most productions, rehearsals are Monday-Friday from 5:30-7:30pm. The schedule may vary depending on the specific director. Some directors may rehearse some Sundays from 2-4pm, and some Saturdays from 10am-12pm. Depending on the role, certain actors may not be called for every rehearsal.


CONFLICTS:  Conflicts are allowed up until two weeks before the production opens. Auditionees should bring their schedule with them to auditions and list all conflicts on the audition form. Conflicts cannot be added once an actor is cast. Conflicts can factor into casting so it is important that all conflicts are listed on the audition form. If an actor adds conflicts after rehearsals have begun, it may result in curtailed performance opportunities or dismissal from the production.


TECH WEEK:  Tech week is the Saturday-Tuesday before school shows begin. Actors are required to be at the theatre 10-4pm Saturday, 2-9pm on Sunday, and 5-9pm on Monday and Tuesday.


SCHOOL SHOWS:  For each SYT production, there will be two days of school time performances that will occur during school hours. If cast in an SYT production, actors must miss school for these days.
