****Please note that once you register any PRODUCTION, you are making a commitment to the production. We make every effort to be sure each student has an opportunity to shine onstage. Dropping from the production because you did not get the role you wanted is something we discourage. Each cast member is an important piece of the production puzzle. For this reason, we cannot issue any refunds for any PRODUCTION.
