Want more details? We understand. Any child activity can be a big undertaking for a family, and we want you to know what our shows entail.
Auditions are held for every show. Every child will get a place in the show and there are no cuts made. There is an audition deposit, but that deposit will be applied to the production fee.
For our shows, the fee is currently $150 per youth. You might expect to pay for a few costume elements that can be reused like “black pants” or “brown shoes”. Families with three or more children in the show pay a capped fee.
Scholarships are available for those who cannot afford our programs.
Summer Camps run one week and are separated into three age groups. Camp fees range from $150-200 per youth.
Rehearsals are held every weekend for up to 4 months leading up to a production.
Rehearsal blocks are 4 hours on Friday nights with a dinner break, typically 5:00pm-9:00pm. The rehearsal block on Saturday is 5 hours with a a lunch break, typically 10:00am-3:00pm.
Your child will be called in blocks of hours and you will be informed by Wednesday of the rehearsal weekend as to when your child needs to rehearse.
Kids will need to bring their own meals, with the exception of Friday nights when we order pizza and it is available for a nominal cost (optional).
An optional morning breakfast and bible study is offered on Saturdays at 9:00am.
Students should come ready to work for rehearsal, including having their script, pencil, highlighter, water bottle, snack if needed, and a smile!
We ask parents to serve on a volunteer team. There is a lot to get done, and parents have us running like a well-oiled machine! We love to know your particular skills that you could contribute. We have teams for: Backstage/Greenroom, Costumes, Set Build/Tech, Souvenirs/Concessions, PR, Props, Make-up, House/Programs, Rehearsal Meals, Historian. We also have need of Photographers, Orchestra members, and many strong arms for load in and load out!
Tech Week is the week prior to our first performance. We usually load in on Sunday and begin rehearsals on Monday evening at our venue, T.C. Howe High School on the near-Eastside of downtown Indianapolis. Rehearsals are mandatory and are every night of the week. Meals are provided by our generous sponsors (and Gluten-Free options are available).
Our full productions are 6-8 performances over one to two weekends. Friday night, Saturday matinee and evening, and Sunday matinee and possible evening. These take place at T.C. Howe High School.
Our Junior productions are multiple performances over one weekend. These take place at a local church here in Greenwood.
