Rehearsals start immediately after casting, Rehearsals are typically Monday to Thursday from 7:00PM to 10:30 PM and Saturdays from 9:00 AM to Noon at either Hopebox or Brightstar Academy. As we get closer to performances, we may add extra times and possible Fridays.
Our pro team will let individuals know if they are called that week as far in advance as possible, but plan on rehearsals just to be safe so we can have everyone we need at rehearsal when we need. We will try not to call anyone who is not in scene/number. Tech rehearsals are typically a week or two before opening.
When you are cast, you will get a rehearsal calendar with approximate dates and times.
