    PARENT/GUARDIAN PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS
     
    Participation in a PSRC CTAP production is a privilege reserved exclusively
    for students enrolled in Grades 2–7 of the elementary and middle schools
     of the Public Schools of Robeson County.*
     
    As such, it comes with the following participation requirements of parents/guardians:
     
     
     As a PARENT/GUARDIAN of a Cast Member, I will:
    • Work with my child to be sure they behave properly and do not: fight, abuse another person, use inappropriate language, are insubordinate, exhibit other behavior that violates PSRC student behavior rules.
      • If my child does fight, abuses another person, uses inappropriate language, is insubordinate, or exhibits other behavior that violates PSRC student behavior rules, at the directors' discretion, my child will be removed from the cast and my child will lose the privilege to be in the next show.
      • If my child does fight or exhibit other behavior that violates PSRC student behavior rules, my child will receive a write-up that will be given to their home school principal.

    • Not bring my child to rehearsal while my child is suspended from school for any reason. Further, I understand that repeated suspensions may result in my child’s removal from the cast.

    • Be sure my child is wearing proper rehearsal clothing that allows for EASY movement and safety:
      • Loose fitting T-shirt or other top that fully covers their upper body.
      • Loose fitting pants, sweat pants, or leggings -- no skirts or other bottoms that would prevent them from doing any required choreography or movement.
      • Full shoes with enclosed toe, sneakers preferred - NO flip-flops, sandals, or other open or loose fitting shoes. If my child is not wearing proper shoes, they will not be allowed to rehearse on stage, but will have to sit for the whole rehearsal.
      • This may require a change of clothes from what they wore to school that day.

    • Not allow them to take a cellphone to rehearsal. If they do bring one, they will have to give to the directors who will keep until the end of rehearsal and then give it back to to me, the parent.

    • Not send food to rehearsal, only water to drink (no juices, no sodas, etc.).

    • Be sure to have my child at rehearsal on at least 10 minutes before 6 PM so rehearsal can start on time.

    • Be sure my child has used the restroom BEFORE the start of rehearsal as there will not be a break time during rehearsal.

    • Be prompt to pick up my child at 8PM and no later than 8:10 PM. Excessive lateness may result in the police being called and my child given into their custody for the safety of my child.

    • Notify the directors well in advance of any absences. I understand that three (3) absences can result in my child being removed from the assigned part and placed into as chorus group.

    • Work with my child to:
      • Make sure they bring their script to every rehearsal and take good care of it, not lose it, or leave it behind at the theatre.
      • Have a pencil with a good eraser at each rehearsal to take notes in their script.
      • Highlight their part in their script to make it easier to know my part by the appointed “off book” date, using two colors - one for what they say and one for what they do.
      • Insure lines, lyrics, dances, and blocking are well learned.

    • Be respectful of the rehearsal process by observing quietly and not creating a distraction.

    • Pay the Cast Party fee (includes party & souvenir T-shirt) by the stated date.  If I fail to pay the fee on time, my child will not attend the cast party and will not receive the souvenir T-shirt.

    • Volunteer to assist in some way with mounting the production—help with sets, props, costumes, makeup, "kid wrangling", cast party, and other needs.

    • Come inside to personally escort my child from the building as they are NOT allowed to wait outside.

    • FOR DRESS REHEARSAL and ALL PERFORMANCES: Have my child ALREADY wearing their proper base costume and shoes when they come to the theatre, which, if they are not wearing, they will NOT be allowed to perform in the show.
