Price Clarification

If you have already paid us, we are sorry for the confusion and you don't need to worry about this. If you have not yet paid, this is probably for you.

Each child's participation in this workshop and show costs $25. If you have more than one child participating, each additional child is only $20.

We apologize for the lack of clarity. Please call us with any questions.

On the other hand, the first rehearsal was excellent! We're very excited about this!

Some of you were double cast (meaning that you have more than one role in this show), so if your name was written twice, it was not a mistake. :)

To the latecomers/kids who have not been able to audition but have talked with us about being in the show: make sure we know you intend to be in this show by this evening (Sunday the 19th) and come to rehearsal tomorrow morning with your audition form and medical release form printed off and filled out. We can try and cast you there.

Once again, thank you all for your talent!

Getting Ready for Auditions...

Just a reminder, the auditions are this Saturday, the 18th of June. Nothing needs to be prepared for this audition. Children wishing to participate should dress comfortably for the audition because we will be doing a little dancing/general movement.
If your son or daughter is not able to audition on the 18th of June, do not hesitate to contact us. We would love your child to participate in this wonderful opportunity, and we can set up another time for your child to audition during the week prior to June 18th.
Also, as a reminder to parents, we would greatly appreciate it if you came with your kids to the audition or at least were ready to pay. Checks should be made payable to Camilyn Bailey.
Children wishing to participate must fill out and sign a medical form and behavior contract. Here is the link to the Google Doc if you would like to print out your own copy and send it with your child:
