Broadway Upstate's Policies

Audition Policy

For 2019, any candidate who has been in 10 or more Broadway Upstate shows will automatically be guaranteed a spot in the show, but must audition for a role.  Any candidate who has participated in fewer than 10 Broadway Upstate shows must audition to get into the show and for a role. 
All children auditioning for:

  1. Beauty and the Beast Jr must be in grades 4-8th.
  2. Footloose is open to grades 4-12 (School year 19-20).
  3. West Side Story School Edition grades 6-12**.

**To audition for full length fall production you must have participated in our summer theater program, Beauty and the Beast Jr, Footloose, or be a student at Broadway Upstate Center for Performing Arts.

Tuition

Tuition Payment for 2019 is $250. Tuition includes participation in the show,  cast t-shirt, cast party after last show, headshot, catered meal in between Saturday shows and the experience of a lifetime. Any candidate who is signing up to audition will pay $250 when registering.  Once tuition is paid and you are registered if you decide not to audition or be in the show for whatever reason you will forfeit ALL tuition. If you audition and do not make the show you will be refunded $225 ($25 audition fee non refundable). Preferably all registration and payments will be handled on our new website.

Attendance

Our attendance policy for 2019 allows only two absences during the rehearsal period of a show. There are absolutely no absences allowed tech week of the shows. These 2 allotted absences are not to be taken unless absolutely necessary. We understand that children have other commitments but doing a production in a 6 week time frame demands perfect attendance.

Parent Responsibilities

We love to have parents involved in their child’s theater experience. There are many ways to get involved and help your child blossom in theater. We do require parents to sign up to be on a committee. Committees are formed at the start of each show. We have concession sales, basket raffles, backstage helpers, stage crew and more. We also ask that each family bring in items for our concession sales during the shows. We will specify items needed closer to show time.
