Each performer will be assessed a participation fee (Maximum $50.00 per household for multiple family participants). It is required to be paid in full prior to the performer’s 1st rehearsal. The fee covers, in part, the cost of rehearsal personnel, costume cleaning & costume repair. This fee is non-refundable should the dancer drop out of the production. Additional costs will run between $60.00-$100.00 per role, for theatre make-up, shoes, socks, tights based on the role(s). All items purchased become the property of the dancer once the performances are over.
