Many students who have been cast will also stay from 6:15-8:15 p.m. for start of rehearsal. There will be a 15-minute break in between. Auditionees should bring a bag lunch/snack, so they are able to begin rehearsing that afternoon if they are cast in the show.
Approximately 50-60 local children will be cast to appear in the show with the MCT Tour Actor/Directors. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play. There is no charge for participation in this MCT residency.
