Membership: CUTC is a membership organization, and we request those who participate in our productions become company members. Memberships follow a calendar year, January 1-December 31. The annual cost is $35 per member ($60 per family). This membership fee is due by the end of the first week of rehearsal. However, if this would be a financial hardship for you or your family scholarships are available, and we don’t want this to hinder you from participating.
If selected, I understand I will need to pay a $35 membership fee.
If selected, I would like to request a scholarship.
