Arlington Center for the Arts
Registration for The Phantom Tollbooth, Jr. is now closed. See the production page for more information.
This fall's collaboration with Arlington Center for the Arts will be The Phantom Tollbooth, Jr., a musical interpretation of Norton Juster's classic book. Registration for this production is open now and will remain open through September 9th. At the end of the registration period, acceptance into the production will be decided based on a lottery. Children of ACT Board members have a limited guarantee of acceptance into the production. All ACTors accepted into the production, including board children, must audition for casting. Specific roles are offered to ACTors at the sole discretion of the artistic staff.
Please note the rehearsal schedule for the show. You will not be required for every rehearsal, only for those where your character is called. You can look at the schedule links for this summer's productions to see how this works. Absences are strongly discouraged throughout the production, and attendance is mandatory from the beginning of dress rehearsals on, so please plan accordingly. All actors and at least one parent are also expected to attend the first meeting on Monday, September 17th, where we will share more details about the production and have sign-ups for volunteer committees.
All payments or payment arrangements must be secured before auditions. There are no refunds after the start of auditions. Although we often have a waitlist, bringing actors into the production after auditions presents numerous challenges for the staff and does not give the late arrivals a fair start to the production.
More details regarding the audition process will be posted after acceptances are mailed out.
As is now our standard policy, final casting decisions will not be made until after the first week of rehearsals. The staff will use this time to get to know the cast and explore the show.
