Frequently Asked Questions – SHOW DAY
What is “call time?”
- Call time is 1 hour before the show starts. This is time set aside to get focused, get into costume and microphones, sound check, and let the audience get seated. Please drop off your performer at the designated drop off location. The seating into the theatre will open about 20 minutes prior to show time.

- All performers should arrive at call time dressed in their base costume. The base costume should be a solid black tank top, a solid black pair of shorts (or leggings), black socks, and black closed toe shoes (sneakers, ballet flats, jazz shoes). If you do not have these items, let us know and we’ll give you some alternatives. Some productions will be require specific shoes, your director will send out information should this apply to you.
What should I do with my hair?

Your performer is still welcome to participate in the camp, however, when casting is assessed it will be taken into account that your performer will not be there the day of the show.
