FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I'M NOT ABLE TO REGISTER, IS THERE A WAITLIST?

We offer a select number of spots on a waitlist in case families drop out before classes start or within the first two weeks. Families who would like to be placed on the waitlist have to pay a $25 deposit to secure their spot. If a spot opens up, the $25 deposit will be credited towards their tuition.

WHERE ARE REHEARSALS LOCATED?

WHERE ARE REHEARSALS LOCATED?

A majority of the rehearsals will take place at our location, which is at Biltmore United Methodist. The tech week rehearsals will be the week before the show and take place where they performance is being held.

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR TO REHEARSAL?

Anything they can move around in comfortably and covers them well no matter how crazy the choreography is. Please send them in closed toe shoes like tennis shoes or dance shoes.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO HELP MY CHILD PREPARE?

Once we pass out the CD and script for the production, you can help my playing the songs over and over (until you feel like you never want to hear them again) and make sure that your child is learning their words. If your child has lines, please run the lines with them and also make sure that they are recognize the lines before their so that they know when to say them. Closer to the production we will send home information about costumes and other show details.

WILL EVERY CHILD GET A PART?

Every child will have a role whether it is a named part or a part of the ensemble. Many time those in the ensemble will have several parts and several costume changes. Every child will have plenty of stage time. Let your child know everyone can't get the part they want every time, but that all parts are important and that we will make sure tat every child has fun things to do on stage.

DO YOU NEED PARENT HELPERS?

We need a massive support team to help make this production runs smoothly. As we get closer to the production, we will send out emails for parents to help with load-in, strike, backstage, ushers, concessions, and tickets.
