o-No one will be discriminated against based on race, religion, ability, financial status, age, gender, and/or sexual orientation.   

o-Bullying, harassment of any kind, alienation or outbursts of any anger or violence will not be tolerated and will be terms for recasting.   

Rules for actors  

1) Rehearsals will start on time. It is recommended that you arrive at least five minutes before rehearsal begins. Use this time to clear your mind and begin to focus on the work ahead.  

2) The show must go on. When the rehearsal begins and the curtain goes up, the show must be performed. Show the cast that you are reliable. When you change your mind about a performance commitment, know that you may be letting down people who will have paid to see you. We may call you if you do not show up for rehearsal, but we hope you will be responsible and call us. Know that if you cannot be here, we may have to replace you.  

3) Come prepared. Every actor must bring a notepad, a clipboard or binder with a stiff surface, a pencil, comfortable shoes, loose clothing, and energy. Readiness shows the director and cast that you care about the production.  

4) Be patient. When you become a part of a show, you will have to wait your turn before your scene is rehearsed. Use your time wisely. Study for a class or prepare your lines before your entrance. Plan ahead, but be prepared to wait in the wings.   

5) Maintain a balance. Participating in a show requires many hours of rehearsal time, one hour for every one minute on stage and that equals 90 hours.   

6) Keep an open mind. Some of the suggestions made are just that. Try the blocking ideas given. If we agree to change them, be prepared to redo scene until they are polished.  

7) Be respectful of others. If you are having difficulty with any person or situation that makes rehearsal a negative experience, please tell us right away.  

8) Horsing around are not allowed on the set or during rehearsals. Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. All school rules apply for rehearsal schedules and must be abided by all. Work out your differences so that you can maintain "good/positive" energy. It shows up in the work. 

9) Take notes. Stage managers get upset when they have to constantly remind actors about certain things they should have written down themselves. Do your part and of course if you forget your blocking or cannot read your handwriting, the stage managers will help you. Be prepared for beginning and/or ending notes at the end of some rehearsals. Record director's comments, summary of any research, observations about your character, as well as your character's relationship to other characters in the play. 

10) Memorize your music and lines as soon as possible. If you don't, this will have an         impact on future roles.   

11) Be positive. We are all here for the same reason: a wonderful experience. Make sure your part  in that is fulfilled.   

12) Look for ways to improve everything you do. Challenge yourself. Don’t rely on the directors or teachers to do everything for you.   

13) Change is the name of the game. Be flexible and always be aware of your schedule and your responsibilities on and off the stage.  

14) Be the person you want to be. Act like a leader in any position within the cast, orchestra and backstage crew. It is important to have fun but to live your life in the best way you can.   

15) Do not share your candid opinion about other people’s performances. This is between your director and actor. We don’t need to comment or give directions to fellow actors. This is a huge NO-NO.   

16) All mobile phones or electrical equipment that may make a sound interfering with rehearsals should be turned off, not left on silent as they can also interfere with the focus of the rehearsal.   

Rules for parents  

1)Support your child in everything they do. Their success relies on your support. A positive influence must come from both sides.   

2)There is a place for everyone at Sleepy Hollow. We are a family, and we take care of each other as a family. We must always stay in communication. If you are ever uncomfortable with any part of our programming, please notify us. We want your involvement and your input.  

3) Please refrain from interrupting rehearsals or performances. Questions can be answered at the appropriate moments. Wait for a time when there is time for your question to be answered.  

4) When not attending the show, parents can wait by the concession stand for their kids at the end of the show.  

5) Please make sure your child is able to arrive on time and participate in the full length of each required rehearsal and performance.  

6) Become a part of set construction and strike. Please help your child get all their hours in, attend all Saturdays out at the park, and participate in the strike.    

7) Get your membership on time, and make sure to tell all your friends, family members, fellow employees and neighbors about what your child is doing. If you are proud and loud, it becomes infectious.   

Thank you for your time and commitment. We want your experience to be the best it can be. Help us achieve this by following the rules and looking at the big picture of involving yourself and your family together in a summer of culture, intellect, and fun.
