PRODUCTION FEE & ATTENDANCE POLICY

SHOW FEE: $325 (for those 18 years & younger)

EXTRA FEE:
Yearly Registration (Summer 2021-Spring 2022): $25.00

Production Fees are one of the five sources of income that support each production. The others are ticket sales, sponsors, donations & advertisements. Production Fees are the seed money to get the production rolling.

What do you get for your production fee?

Between 80-200 hours of supervised activity for your student. That’s less than $3.00 / hour to participate!
Professional instruction and coaching in singing, acting, dancing, and other theater skills
Access to all the show’s music
Video references to practice select dance choreography
Daily & weekly production updates from our Stage Manager
A show T-Shirt for each cast member (parents and sibs can also purchase a shirt)
A headshot taken by a professional photographer

Special Arrangements
While we think the Production Fee is a great value considering everything you get, we understand that it can be a daunting amount, especially for families that have multiple children in the production. In order to help even further, we have a few options that we offer to make things easier. If you have any questions, please speak with the Business Manager, Erin Walker, or email erin@thepactmobile.com

Payment Plan
We are happy to work with families to pay the Production Fee payment in four installments. The software is set up to do this automatically, though we ask that families pay as soon as possible but no later than the posted due dates on the calendar page.

Payment 1 — $100.00 due February 2022
Payment 2 — $75.00 due March 5, 2022
Payment 3 — $75.00 due April 5,  2022
Payment 4 — $75.00 due May 5, 2022

Those ages 18 and up:
There is not a production fee for adults. However, there will be a small costume fee depending on where you are cast, for more info email office@thepactmobile.com!

 

Attendance Policy

Cast members are required to be present and on time for all rehearsals. Arrive 10 minutes early. Attendance is taken at all rehearsals. At auditions, you will have the opportunity on your forms to tell the Artistic Team about any planned absences, such as scheduled family vacations. Note: Taking a cast member out of rehearsal early is the same as an absence and needs to be planned just like any other absence. Taking a cast member out of rehearsal without having planned for it with the Artistic Team is an unexcused absence, just the same as missing a whole rehearsal. Any changes in attendance should be communicated to the Stage Manager.

Important Note: Regardless of the reason, excused or unexcused, if a cast member misses rehearsal (or is late for rehearsal or leaves rehearsal early), he/she may be cut from any scenes that were rehearsed that day. This is not a punishment, it is simply a natural consequence of the pace of our rehearsal schedule. New material is learned each week and then we move on. We may not have the time to back up and re-teach material for cast members who were not present.
