Ages 10 & Up (Register now, Audition later)
TCA is getting back to its roots. This production (Ages 10 and Up), will sign up if you'd like to participate and a few weeks in, we will have auditions. We strongly believe in the power of theatre and the benefits of being a part of a production no matter what role you get! This is how we originally started way back at Orange Terrace and I am excited to get back to our mission of "instill a lasting passion for the arts in the young people of today." The "arts" means all roles, on stage and off, all types of art forms. I want to teach your children the love of theatre from all angles of the stage, front and center or stage right in the back row. Every part is important and vital to the success of our show!

Costs for the production:
Ages 7 - 9. Tuition is $250 Total. $50 Deposit.
10 & Up. Tuition is $300 total. $100 Deposit. (Roughly $12 per rehearsal)
Remaining balance due at the first rehearsal.
Tuition includes: all rehearsals, costume fee, script (actors keep), and a cast t-shirt. The only other costs will be undergarments/footwear, and ticket sales. We do not require a minimum amount of tickets to be sold by any cast member. Tickets range from $15 - $20 each and will be sold closer to the performance date.
Please note, actors 9 and under will require a parent volunteer fulfillment.
What if I don't get the part I want?
We have gone back to enrollment based productions because we believe that theatre is more than just 1 shining star. However, if you want to drop the production after casting, you will forfeit the $100 deposit. The remaining $200 will be refunded to you. If you drop, you are not eligible to participate in the following TCA production. You will be welcome back after one production. In case you can't tell, promoting theatre from all angles is of the utmost importance to TCA. We want to train talented, respectful, and eager actors; this means learning to love a role you didn't necessarily want. Some of my most fond theatrical memories are from shows or roles that I didn't think I'd like. I promise, theatre is more than just being in the spotlight.
Please note, this rehearsal schedule WILL change once we get all the cast member's conflicts.
This is a rough schedule to give you an idea of rehearsals. Please note all conflicts on your registration form (even if your age group is not called). We are happy to work around pre-disclosed conflicts.
