FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long is the rehearsal process?
Typically, rehearsals last about six weeks prior to opening. Due to the complexity of everyone's schedules, rehearsals are reserved for evenings Monday through Fridays and Saturdays, during the day. Generally rehearsals are scheduled from 6:00-10:00PM weeknights, and 9:00AM-4:00PM on Saturdays.
Do I get paid?
Yes, we do offer stipends to all adult actors employed during a production. Children, under legal working age, do not receive monetary compensation, but usually receive discounted tickets for family members.
Do you hire Equity?
No, not generally. We are not an Equity Theatre, although, occasionally there is an Equity contract offered under special circumstances. However, Equity actors are always encouraged to audition, as you never know what will be offered.
