    The Fine Print:

    $50 performance fee for students of The Redding Arts Project, $75 performance fee for dancers from other studios. Fee is due at the first cast meeting and is non-refundable.

    Dancers cast in the show must either be enrolled in a dance class at TheRAP or another local studio. If at a different studio, please submit a proof of training form at the first rehearsal. As the official training school of Redding City Ballet, dancers enrolled at The Redding Arts Project receive first consideration for roles.

    Please do not audition if you are not able to commit to rehearsals. For kids it will be about 1-2hrs per week (youngest ~ 45 minutes). For Corps de Ballet it will be 2-4 hrs per week.

    Missed rehearsals WILL result in a reduced part or being dropped from the cast. Tech week rehearsals are mandatory and missing one (unless due to illness or injury) will result in being cut from the show. Understudies are cast for this reason.
