Rehearsals will be held Monday through Friday’s from 4:00 to 6:30pm and Saturday afternoons and Sunday early evening depending on cast and theatre schedules. Actors are not called for all rehearsals, only ones where they are being used for a scene. Typically, large cast rehearsals are held on Saturdays. We will try to limit most actors to 4-5 rehearsals a week until we reach the last few weeks. Rehearsals will be worked around actor schedules as much as possible, although we have to avoid an actor being out on a long summer trip.
