TYPICAL REHEARSAL SCHEDULE
Rehearsals will generally be 1 to 3 times a week during June on Sunday (1PM-5PM), Monday (6-9PM), Tuesday (6-9PM), or Thursday (6-9PM) in Napoleon. In July rehearsals will be more frequent closer to the show. These rehearsals will be divided into blocking, vocal, choreography, and run of the show. Extra private music rehearsals may be called for principal roles. Should you be cast, you will be contacted by the Vocal Director for your availability and scheduling. You may also contact the Vocal Director if you would like to schedule more time working on the music outside the rehearsal process. 

Please also note there are scheduled set build/paint days that we require everyone to participate (family members are encouraged to help) 

PARTICIPATION FEE (DUE May 30)
There is a participation fee to participate in this summer’s show. Since the Maumee Valley Civic Theater (MVCT) relies on donations, program ad sales, ticket sales, and your participation fee to ensure our shows are high quality. This fee helps with obtaining the rights for the show, costumes, set pieces, props, and advertising. Please note you may be asked to provide certain costume pieces for the show not limited to shoes, pants, shorts, etc.  

ALL  $50 

PATRON DONATIONS/FUNDRAISING REQUIREMENT (Due June 27)
This year, MVCT expects all cast to help support the production by selling at least $100 in either Program ads, patron donations, corporate donations, shoutouts/break-a-leg messages, and/or $100 in orders in announced fundraiser (if available). These forms and instructions will be provided at the first read and through online.  

If you have more than one member of your immediate family in the cast, you only need to sell $200 per family. *Please note this is in addition to the Participation Fee.
