Parody Cast and Crew Expectations

Working on the Parody requires a serious commitment to the show, the cast, and the crew! This year, as always, we expect a large number of people to audition for relatively few spots. During the coming weeks, many busy people will be making sacrifices to be a part of the show, and we expect you to do the same. Remember: The entire Parody process will only last FIVE WEEKS, but during these five weeks, the show should be a priority! TIME COMMITMENT Participation in the Parody requires a substantial time commitment during the month of February and the first week of March. • Parody rehearsals are usually held in the evenings (7-10pm) on Sunday through Thursday. We will also hold rehearsals on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the rehearsal period. We will try to keep weekend rehearsals to a minimum, but they will be scheduled when necessary. That said, you will not be required to be at the rehearsals every night, only when your part in the play is being rehearsed. Likewise, many students use their downtime to study when they are not actively rehearsing. We are also very good about managing schedules, so please don't be scared away by the time commitment. • Any and all conflicts must be approved and excused one week in advance. • We will expect the entire cast and crew to participate in set and tech setup, including set build, set strike, and backdrop painting. • You should expect to spend the majority of your time during the final weeks before opening night working on the Parody. CLEARING YOUR SCHEDULE We understand the demands made on your time by classes, family commitments, and other significant extracurricular activities. However, we expect you to make certain sacrifices in order to be available for the show. During the short five weeks that we’ll be working together, the Parody should be your first priority. In particular: • You absolutely must participate in our first read through of the script on FRIDAY evening, 02/01. • You should be available to participate in Set Build on the weekend of Friday, 02/15, Saturday, 02/16, and Sunday, 02/17, but if you absolutely cannot be there, we will find another support activity for you to do, such as ticket sales before the show, but we really prefer you be here for Set Build. • You absolutely must be available for Tech and Dress Rehearsals, the week of SUNDAY, 02/24 - FRIDAY, 03/01, and for our Performances, SATURDAY, 03/02 – WEDNESDAY, 03/06, as well as Set Strike, THURSDAY, 03/07 and FRIDAY, 03/08. If you have an immovable conflict with these dates, please list it above and the producers will discuss it with you. • These are only the most significant of the many dates and times when we will expect your presence. PUNCTUALITY Many people have made a significant effort to fit rehearsals and other Parody commitments into their schedules. You are therefore expected to be ON TIME to all rehearsals, meetings, or other scheduled events. PROFESSIONALISM You are expected to bring creativity and energy to rehearsals, to take careful note of your blocking instructions on the script provided, and to adhere to the Director’s deadlines for when you are to be off-book. We welcome your creative input on the interpretation of characters, the addition of lines, and the development of blocking, but you are expected to defer to the final judgment of the Producers. If you have concerns or require more specific information, please feel free to email the Producers, Kate Aizpuru and Raul Campillo at parody2013@gmail.com. Be sure to CHECK EMAIL OFTEN for casting information the night of Thursday, January 31 and the morning of Friday, February 1. You must reply IMMEDIATELY to the offer of a role. Our first read-through is the evening of FRIDAY, February 1 around 6:30pm (time subject to change). Remember – the Parody is FUN, but to make the show fun for everyone, we have to take our roles seriously. Please be honest with us and with yourself about your commitment to the show. We guarantee that the commitment is worth it!
