TEEN MUSICAL: MAYHEM

Hybrid Rehearsals | 6 Weeks, twice per week including Sat 9-11am| $185 per performer

Rehearsals will be scheduled with in-person and remote options available. This means, if you'd like to rehearse in person, we will facilitate small group, physically distanced rehearsals along with live-streamed rehearsals via Zoom. Students who wish to participate and remain remote can absolutely do so! Our flexible rehearsal options will allow us to maintain consistent rehearsal activity regardless of the state of COVID-19.

Roles are open to performers of all genders ages 12-19.

Shows will be performed LIVE via Zoom and Live Streamed for our audience to enjoy. Group Musical Numbers will be performed in advance while our actors perform their scenes remotely. We are planning our performances to be held just before Halloween (Saturday, October 24th @5pm and 7pm | Friday, October 30th @5pm & 7pm). Performers must be available for each performance.

Each performer will receive a packet that will include items necessary for them to be able to successfully perform their roles. For those performers with questionable wifi strength, we have some limited on-site performance locations that we can assign them to. 

The cast will have an opportunity to record an Original Cast Album of the show that the writers will use!

Tickets will be available to the community. 

This is going to be SO MUCH FUN!
