There will be very important rehearsals happening the final 2 weeks before performances, from approx. June 27th onward. But July 4th falls right in the middle of one of those weeks, so we’re trying to be flexible for folks’ holiday plans. Rehearsal scheduling depends on how well the show is coming along, and that depends on how the cast members’ attendance and focus is during May and early June! We will for sure have Wed. July 4th off, but we’ll very likely have important rehearsals on Sundays July 1 & 8, as well as July 5, 6 & 7.
July 9-11 all Rehearsals are Mandatory and will likely include daytime as well as evening rehearsals times.
Performances (dates/times subject to minor changes):
Thursday, July 12th 7pm
Friday, July 13th 1pm & 7pm
Saturday, July 14th 2pm & 7pm
Sunday, July 15th 1pm
Please complete the conflict calendar which will be in the paper portion of the application (accessed via lgyt.net). We will not accept new conflicts after the last day of callbacks. If you need to add a conflict you may be removed from the scene or dance number.
Each family is expected to provide at least 20 volunteer hours to the production, 2 of which will be at strike. We require a separate $295 refundable deposit, which ensures that each family fulfills their volunteer requirements. This check will not be cashed but held until the end of the production. This $295 is the equivalent of the volunteer buyout. If you do not fulfill the volunteer requirement, we will keep your deposit (no partial refunds).
