To be a performer in the Youth Pioneer Production, we ask that you adhere to the following:
* Commit to be at the scheduled rehearsal and have a great time!
* Pay a non-refundable $35 Participation Fee per performer (family discounts will apply for multiple members/performers, and scholarships are available to those with financial limitations). This fee includes: high quality & professional instruction, cast t-shirt, and a cast party after the production is complete and you can bring as many family and friends to see you at the show since this year is FREE ADMISSION.
* We would also like to ask for each performer to donate 5 volunteer hours, completed by parents or performers if over 16 yrs. old. (You can choose what you'd like to help with including set/staging, costume making, costume changes, dressing rooms, backstage, ushering, security posts, parking assistance, etc.). If you'd prefer to not volunteer time, you can also make a voluntary donation of $50 to the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund.
* Bring your own costume to wear, or we can provide on for you. If we provide one, we ask for a $15 deposit that will be returned to you when you return the costume to us, washed and with any needed repairs, if any.
These items will be discussed more in depth at the parent/cast meeting. Please do not let the fee or time requirement make it so you do not audition/participate; limited scholarships are also available. We want every person to have an opportunity. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have questions.
The Youth Pioneer Production staff will contact (by telephone) only those actors who are called to call backs on lead roles. Please understand that because of the large number of people involved, it is not possible to call everyone who did not get offered a leading role in the final Company, however we would still invite you to participate with the production cast even if you are not cast for the role you may audition for intially.
