Rehearsal Information & Structure


Everything happens at Park Hall, 9400 Mill Street in Ben Lomond (next door to Ben Lomond Market).

Arrival and Departure Times

If your child is scheduled to arrive at 9:30 a.m., please don’t drop him /her off early! There will be no one there to supervise them before that time. The staff needs any time prior to 9:30 a.m. to prepare for the day and children will not be admitted inside Park Hall until 9:30 a.m. Similarly, afternoon session children should be picked up promptly at 3:00 p.m.; no child can be left unsupervised. (There is an overtime fee of $1/minute if you arrive after 3:00 p.m.)

Walking Home

If your child is walking/bike-riding home, we need a note of permission from you before we can let any child go home unsupervised.

Snacks & Lunches

PLEASE: NO gum, candy, caffeinated drinks or soft drinks. If it’s an all-day rehearsal, send a snack plus a brown bag lunch. Youngsters will not be allowed to go to the store during the day without their parent. Also please send your actor with a reusable water bottle, since we have no drinking fountain in the Hall.

Phone Calls

We have no permanent telephone available at Park Hall, so please arrange pick-up times, etc., ahead of time. A cell phone number for emergencies only will be given out at our mandatory parent meeting.

Parent Meeting: TBD

We will meet virtually (via Zoom) to go over the program, and answer any questions.

Audition Week: TBD

You will sign up your child for either the morning or afternoon program. Programs are 9:30am-Noon or 12:30-3:00pm, Monday through Wednesday. For the Thursday rehearsal, all actors are called ALL DAY (9:30-3:00). Actors must be available during audition week. We request that actors stay in the same program the first 3 days.

Rehearsals: TBD

First Rehearsal (TBD)

The first rehearsal will be an all cast, all day rehearsal (9:30-3:00). It will be the first time the kids are all together in a group. We do some group exercises, and we go over the script and music. All actors are required to attend.

Rehearsal sessions are 9:30am-Noon or 12:30-3:00 p.m. Participants are scheduled for rehearsal based on the group/character in which they’re cast.
