Rehearsal Dates: April 29th-June 20th
Performance Dates: June 21th-30th, 2012

Rehearsal Schedule: We’re having a long rehearsal schedule to accomodate for actor’s work schedule. Rehearsals will be no more than four days a week, and NO PERFORMER is called to every rehearsal. There will be no rehearsals on Wednesdays or Saturdays. There is a mix of day time and night time rehearsals which hopefully accommodate most actors’ survival jobs.
