Thank you for your interest in auditioning!
We're happy to see you getting involved in a show at Creative Grounds! In a never-ending effort to help integrate technology, streamline our processes, and make the early stages of pre-production easier on everyone: we are again slightly modifying the audition process. Please read the information below carefully and completely before purchasing this audition fee.
After purchasing this item, you will receive an email receipt that will contain 2 links. The first link, labeled "Audition Paperwork" will take you to a google form that must be filled out. The second link will take you to another google form that will allow you to upload your audition video(see requirements below).
If we are out of this item: please send an email to Mark Landis(firstname.lastname@example.org) in order to join our waitlist.
Communication and Information
Throughout the production process, there will be many times in which we will need to get information out to the entire cast and their families in a timely manner. We do this in two ways.
Our first method of contact is done through the remind system. On the show's main page you will see a link to and instructions for setting up remind and what your specific production's remind code is.
Our second method of contact, is through the closed Facebook Group. Through this Facebook Group we communicate and share photos as the production progresses.
For this show, you must be a student aged 7 to 12 and still enrolled in school, complete the necessary paperwork and audition video by the deadline specified above, and be an active participant throughout the production. In addition, during the audition paperwork part of the process, you must agree to the CGFAA Actors Code of Conduct.
If you meet the rest of the requirements, but not are currently enrolled in school or have recently graduated prior to submitting your application, you must email Mark(email@example.com) and receive permission prior to submitting your audition. Please include your name, age, birthday and a statement indicating why you wish to join the production. Please note, even if you are over 18 and legally an adult, parent involvement will still required and all rules for younger students will still be applicable. Failure to comply with this policy will result in automatic rejection of your application.
Audition Fees are $25 per student. The audition fee is applied to your total Production Fee of $200 which makes the remaining balance $175. Production fees may be paid in payments and split over 6 weeks, but must be paid in full before Tech Week begins.Audition fees are non-transferrable and not refundable.
Should you require it, a limited number of scholarships are available for the production. Please contact Mark(firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive the application for the Scholarship.
Here at CGFAA, and larger productions in general, there is always more work than hands to do it. We ask that parents be involved in one or more of our Parent Committees. Should you be unable to be involved in one or more of the parent Committees of at least 15 hours of service you can elect to "OPT OUT" of serving. There will be an additional $200 cost associated with opting out of serving.
