3) CAST FEE:
If your child is cast in this production there is a ‘cast fee’ or ‘participation fee’ that must be paid before they can begin rehearsals. We here at PREMIERE FOR KIDS and the OFF BROADWAY THEATERS are the ONLY youth company to give parents a payment option.

OPTION #1: Pay the FULL $160.00 cast fee and sell the required 10 tickets.
OPTION #2: Pay a $125.00 cast fee and sell a required 20 tickets to the show.

You pay a $80.00 cast fee and sell a required 10 tickets to the show. To qualify for this option you must be between the ages of 7 and 13 years of age.
You can specify on the audition form if you want your child to be considered for a LEAD or SUPPORTING LEAD ONLY or if you want them to be considered for ENSEMBLE or SMALL SPEAKING ROLE only. There will also be an option where you can check off ‘I don’t care what type of role they get’
ANY TEEN - 15 years and up - can WORK OFF THE AMOUNT of their cast fee helping out with set clean up, costumes, organization etc. THE TEEN MUST SPECIFY THAT THEY WANT TO WORK OFF THEIR CAST FEE ON THEIR AUDITION FORM. The teens will work off their fee at $8.50 an hour. So, if the cast fee is $160.00 they have to work approximately 19 hours.

There is no charge to cast members over the age of 19 years. The cast fee covers their insurance while they are with us; costume rental and cleaning; cast party and FREE cast photo of the cast. Your child may sell as many tickets as they want, but, they must sell the required 10, 15 or 20 tickets. Payments may be made with cash, check or credit card.
