Summer Season 2012

ACT will again produce three musicals this summer, covering a span of ages and styles. The shows are Spring Awakening, 13 and Disney's Alice in Wonderland, Jr.. There is an overlap in the age ranges for the three shows, so some kids will qualify for more than one show. When you register to participate in the Summer Season, you will not choose a show. Casting into shows will be done by the artistic staff following auditions. Of course one of the best parts of the ACT summer show has always been the synergy of working with kids over a wide range of ages, and we are hoping to maintain that spirit this summer. Everyone will register and audition together using material from all the shows, and kids will be encouraged to help out with the other productions. Each show will have a single cast with four performances. See the tables below for more details on rehearsals and performances for each show.

Details for 2012

Online registration for the ACT Summer Season will run from May 1st through 14th. At the end of the registration period, acceptance into SS12 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 SS12, including board children, must audition for casting. Specific roles in specific shows are offered to ACTors at the sole discretion of the artistic staff.

Please note the rehearsal schedule for the show or shows in your age group. You will not be required for every rehearsal, only for those where your character is called. You can look at the schedule links for last 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 May 29th 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 usually 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. All ACTors will attend rehearsals for the show or shows for which they are age-eligible. The staff will use this time to get to know the cast, explore the shows and rehearse ensemble pieces.

We are looking forward to a fantastic summer, and we hope you will be a part of it!
