Thank you!

We appreciate all of you who auditioned! We had some very hard choices to make and one of our hardest tasks involves not casting each and every deserving actor.

Security told us tonight that they will be resurfacing the parking lot by the Advanced Technologies Building tomorrow. Everyone will need to park at the Student Center and walk over for the Company Meeting!!

Our first Company Meeting and Rehearsal will be Saturday morning, August 13th, at 10:00 a.m. Since the official cast list will not go up until late Friday night, we wanted to go ahead and give you the instructions for the Company Meeting. Please review the information below.

Company Meeting - August 13th - 10:00 am

Our first Company Meeting will be this Saturday, August 13 at 10:00 am at Rockingham Community College. We will take care of a lot of business at this meeting so be prepared for the following:

- Please bring $10 to pay for your script. You will be able to keep your script from this production. Family members may share if they choose.

- Cast members who have not previously participated in a TGRC show, will be required to purchase a theatre handbook for $1. (1 per family)

- We ask that all cast members donate $5 to our Encore Café budget for each show.

-Because of the enormous costuming requirements for this show, each cast member will be required to pay a $20 costume/makeup rental fee. ($15 per sibling)

- We will order t-shirts for Lion King Jr. with the names of the cast members on the back. This is not mandatory. If you would like a shirt, please be prepared to order them at the company meeting. You can pay at the Company Meeting or pay later. The cost for t-shirts is $15.

- We will be taking "Headshots" (pictures) at the Company Meeting. We ask all cast members and staff members to wear a solid jewel tone top with NO writing or designs. A bright color will help your picture stand out!
