Midvale Main Street Theatre Children’s Program Policies

Conflicts

Actors are required to create a conflict list ahead of casting to let the director know when they are unable to rehearse. This conflict list must be strictly adhered to. All casting and rehearsal schedule decisions are made based on this list. You may not add conflicts later.

Please look CAREFULLY at the calendar and list all possible conflicts. It is important to be truthful about conflicts and obligations. Casting decisions can be influenced by an actors availability and excessive or added conflicts may result in removal from the show.  Not all cast members will be scheduled for every rehearsal or for the entire rehearsal session. 

Absences

You may not miss rehearsal other than pre-stated conflicts. Unlike most activities, when an actor is missing there is no one who can fill in. An unscheduled absence requires everything to be relearned the next rehearsal and sets the whole show back. Due to limited rehearsal time, we will not be able to go back and re-teach or re-block scenes for actors who are absent.  If a cast member misses a rehearsal, they may not be placed in that particular number or scene.  A detailed schedule will be given out in advance.  It is extremely important that you keep track of the schedule and which days your character is scheduled.

In the case of illness or emergency we ask that you notify the stage manager as soon as possible. It is your responsibility to reach out to the stage manager for blocking, music or choreography notes learned that day. If you have a fever or stomach virus, please remain home until you are 24 hours symptom free.

Behavior and Dismissals Policy

Every student and parent is expected to be a kind, loving, hardworking advocate and member of this community. If an actor or parent is not able to be a positive part of our production, the family may be asked to leave the show. It is our goal that every person involved feels that our theatre is a safe place. All staff members must be treated with respect. If a behavior issue arises with an actor, we will first address with them directly, and then involve parents if needed to resolve the problem.

Non-discrimination Policy

It is the policy and commitment of The Midvale Main Street Theatre that it does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, gender identity, color, sex, national origin, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation or religion.
