Bravo! Creative Arts Production Company
*ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL*
Memorizing your lines is one of the major responsibilities for all actors. We’re in this together! Actors who struggle with lines make it difficult for the entire cast to rehearse. The due date for memorizing is the last week in February. Actors who are not actively working on memorization by the due dates may be asked to discuss the continuation of their role.
Rehearsal conflicts are difficult on everyone. Actors who have three or more unexcused or unreported absences may be asked to forfeit their role in the show.
Since all kinds of things can happen during a rehearsal period, understudies may be assigned as we go along. This can help to cover conflicts, illnesses etc. Should the need arise to use understudies, the Production Team will inform the understudy and the actor they are helping of any changes to schedules or rehearsal responsibilities.
We follow the same rules of conduct as students are expected to follow during the school day. Details of our behavior/discipline policy will be outlined at our first rehearsal and parent meeting.
Rehearsals are considered “closed” rehearsals. Family and friends are asked to wait outside of the rehearsal area for your students. This keeps our noise level and distractions to a minimum.
It takes a small army to make these productions possible! Parents who would like to take on a pre-production or production job are more than welcome to do so. If you have a special area of expertise that you would like to offer help with, we would love to hear from you! We will be covering volunteer jobs at the audition and parent meeting.
Costume and Shoe Information
All actors must be able to change into their costumes in a co-ed setting. For this reason, we require appropriate black undergarments to be worn.
For undergarments, a tank top and fitted shorts work well. Girls can wear a tank top, camisole, or leotard with cartwheel/dance style shorts. Boys can wear a tank top and shorts.
Black Soft-soled shoes are required for performances and preferred for rehearsals. Ballet or jazz shoes are best, absolutely no sneakers for the performances.
Costume and Shoe Information
All actors must be able to change into their costumes in a co-ed setting. For this reason, we require appropriate undergarments to be worn. Since this, a show with a large ensemble, having the actors all look uniform is a priority.
For our production of The Lion King, actors will be wearing black and need to have long sleeves and full-length pants. A black long-sleeved leotard with leggings works well. Another option is a black long-sleeved unitard. If these are not easily obtainable, a long-sleeved shirt and pants will be acceptable if they are snug-fitting. The overall effect is to have arms and legs covered in black and not loose or baggy.
Soft-soled shoes are required for performances and preferred for rehearsals. Ballet or jazz shoes in black are required.
These items may be found at local stores such as Target, Walmart, etc. Amazon is also another option.
Please feel free to reach out to the production team with any questions that you may have. Thank you!
