                                    THE POLICIES OF THE SHOW

Attendance Policy
It is imperative that cast attends rehearsals as expected. It is understood that illnesses and emergencies can
arise; however, clear and direct communication about such incidences is expected. In the event that you are
absent from school, you are to send an email to Mr. Samarro, Mr. Haddad, Ms. Sporn, and the student Stage
Manager, so they can make arrangements to rehearse without you. Any other absence will not be excused. If
there is an attendance issue, it is likely that an understudy will replace you.

Memorization Policy
To be part of a show requires some homework, including reviewing blocking and choreography on your own,
doing some character work, practicing your songs, and memorizing lyrics and lines. If lines, lyrics, blocking
and choreography are not memorized by their deadlines, it is likely that an understudy will replace you.
