Welcome Cast of West Side Story!
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE PAGE!
THANK YOU to everyone who came out to audition for West Side Story! As with every show, the cast decisions were extremely difficult due to the wealth of talented young performers that auditioned. We would love to have a role for every actor who auditions, but it just isn’t possible.
If you do not see your name listed below it is not a reflection of your talent! We realize that auditioning is not easy – you are sharing a part of yourself as you stand in front of strangers and perform. We’re proud of each and every one of you for coming out – don’t give up! The Directing team looks at a variety of factors when considering who is the right person for each role including singing, dancing, acting, height, and your availability.
CTM and many other theatre organizations offer workshops, acting and audition classes, and summer camps to help develop your skills. CTM hopes to see you at a class or future audition!
If your name is listed below you must ACCEPT or DECLINE your role no later than 5pm, Friday, Feb. 17, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org - Subject line "West Side - ACCEPT" or "West Side – DECLINE"
If we do not hear from you by the deadline we will assume you decline your role, no exceptions. Please respond ASAP!
The first West Side Story Cast Read-thru AND Mandatory Parent Meeting is this Sunday, February 19th, at 5155 Financial Way in Mason beginning at 1:00pm for the entire cast and at least one parent per family. **THIS IS A NEW LOCATION - NOT AT MARS HILL!**. Final conflicts will be due at parent meeting.
The participation fee ($125) and payment for other optional other items will be due at the parent meeting. Some actors will also need to also submit a script deposit check ($25).
All future rehearsals will be held at CTM’s Main Street Studio, 308 West Main Street in Mason unless otherwise specified on the rehearsal schedule. Rehearsals are held Tues. and Thurs. evenings (6:00pm – 9:00pm) and Sun. afternoons (1pm – 5pm). A complete rehearsal schedule will be provided in the first couple weeks after final conflicts have been received, but expect for the full cast to be called at the beginning unless the Directing Team tells you otherwise.
All families must complete 6 pre-show Volunteer hours, Volunteer at 2 shows, and also help ‘strike’ the set after the final show.
