On Monday, two actor/directors from MCT roll into town with all of the scripts, sets, lights and costumes needed to put on a play. All children audition on Monday morning and are given their parts. Auditions are low key, fun, and done all together as a group.

The children rehearse all week, with two performances on Saturday. Younger children (6 – 7 year olds) generally rehearse four ½ days and then are required for a full day on Saturday. Older children will be given their rehearsal schedule when they are assigned their parts but will be expected for rehearsal at some point each day all week. By Thursday, older children will be rehearsing a full day.

Directors give parts based on quality auditions, personality traits, age and appearance. They have no prior knowledge of your child’s previous acting experiences. Contact people and host families usually meet the directors only on audition day as well. Children who have good listening skills, cheerful attitudes, loud voices and smiling faces usually get parts with more lines and responsibilities.

Because of tight time schedules, the directors require that the kids skip or reschedule any other commitments they may have that week. Some workshops are included in the cost of registration. They occur outside normal rehearsal times and are optional. These will be announced during rehearsals.
