Cast Party

We will have a cast party after strike.  Pickup at 8pm.

 

Parent Volunteer Requirement

There are many things to do to put together a show, and therefore we ask for a parent volunteer from each family to fulfill one or two volunteer positions (TBD). However if this is not convenient for you, you have the option to pay the opt out fee of $40. Certain positions require expertise in a field (set, costumes, etc.) but most just require your time (backstage parent supervision, etc).  Most jobs will require about 2 hours of work. If you LOVE volunteering or have a special skill that might be helpful, please email us.

 

We will have the volunteer list ready by October; at that time you can choose your position or pay the opt-out fee.  

 

 

Production Fee 

The Beauty and the Beast musical costs $660. Your Production Fee includes your script, show t-shirt, digital video of the performance, and cast party.  Some of your costume will also be included, though we will ask each actor to provide some other parts of their costume (see below) including jazz shoes.  

 

Your Rhythms account will be charged $220 on August 15th, September 1st, and October 1st.  When you enroll, you will enter your credit card and be enrolled in auto-pay so you will be automatically charged each month and won’t have to worry about when to pay.  Or if you prefer you can pay the total production fee in full by cash or check by the first rehearsal date.   Please email the studio if you choose this option.  Payments later than 5 days will incur a $15 late fee.  We are not able to give refunds.  You may want to pay your first payment at the time of registration but it is not due until August 15th.

 

 

Family Discount:  If two or more siblings are in a Rhythms musical (including our younger or older shows), we offer $60 off for each child.  

 

New Friend Discount:  For every NEW FRIEND that a returning actor gets to register for The Addams Family, the returning actor will get $100 off their performance fee.  (Friends must be new to Rhythms Performing Arts).

 

Overachiever Discount: For students who are enrolled in over 3.5 hours of other weekly Rhythms classes (not including musical), we offer a $100 discount off of your $660 Production Fee. 

 

Multiple Musical Discount: For those students who participate in The Addams Family as well as Beauty & The Beast, you will receive $100 off their total production fees. 

 

These discounts may NOT be automatically added to your studio director account.  Please email the studio if you would like a discount applied to your account.

 

 

Costumes

For this show, the costumes are modern day.  So we will be asking actors to provide a number of items for their costume and we will provide the rest.
