Information about the Stage Theatre Society Production Fee
There is no fee to audition, but successful “auditionees” will be required to pay a nominal production fee of £110.
This fee will include all rehearsals, costumes, relevant insurances, and tickets to the production. The production will be held at The Hazlitt Theatre from 19th – 25th July 2020. You will need to be available for Sunday afternoon rehearsals from 2.00pm - 7.30pm.
Depending on numbers at auditions, we may consider a split cast for those 12 and under. If this were to occur, the production fee would be reduced for these members. The first rehearsal will be held on the 29th March.
