Job descriptions will be discussed during auditions and families will sign  up at the time for both a job and a night to work at the parent meeting

Parents of younger children and/or  children new to theater will need to assist their children with writing down blocking and to be present to make sure your children understand the stage directions, entrances and exits. Blocking will take place  during the first 3 or rehearsals.
