Rehearsal Information: Rehearsals will officially begin in March. As there will be no rehearsals scheduled over spring break, it is expected that students utilize that time in order to memorize lines. Rehearsals typically run from 3:30 until 7:00, with technical rehearsals running longer. There will be one Saturday rehearsal during this period, which will occur on May 12th, otherwise, there are no traditional weekend rehearsals. A complete rehearsal calendar will be shared through KUSD Google Drive once the cast list is posted. The calendar will also appear on this website once rehearsals have begun. Cast members are not permitted to miss more than three rehearsals, unless absences were already scheduled, so please list all conflicts on your audition form.
