HOW IT WORKS
All benefits from the musical fundraiser go towards Segal Centre programming ranging from youth arts education, support for emerging artists and programming development, and much more.
By purchasing a song or chorus role, you commit to:
- Performing on June 2, 2019
- Raising the required funds before the show date
- Attending all rehearsals
- Attending tech and dress rehearsals
- Paying the registration fee of $50.00 (non-refundable, plus taxes)
The Segal Centre will support you in your efforts to meet your fundraising goals with a sample email to send to your prospective sponsors and a link on our web page to announce your not-to-be-missed debut!
In order to shine like the star you are, please make every effort to attend all scheduled rehearsals. We understand that life sometimes gets in the way and we ask that you advise the stage manager as soon as you know of any conflicts. In order to ensure an amazing experience for you and the audience, we will have to ask anyone who misses more than three rehearsals to leave the show. Should this arise, registration fees and any donations raised cannot be refunded.
REHEARSAL AND PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE
Starting Sunday, January 13, 2019, rehearsals will be held twice a week on:
- Sunday evenings at 7:00 PM
- Monday evenings at 7:30 PM
Cast members will be assigned specific rehearsal times as needed, or be asked to come to full company rehearsals. You will not be required to attend every Sunday and Monday rehearsal. Rehearsal schedules will be assembled on a monthly basis. We will do our best to respect everyone's time and availability.
The tech and dress rehearsals will take place the week of May 27, 2019.
What is the Alumni number?
As past participants, you are surely aware of the special bonds we have built throughout the years. Naturally, we want each of you back on the stage this year, but we know how busy everyone is. So, as a very special exception for this year, we will have an “alumni number” for those who can only participate in one group song.
The ensemble sings and/or dances in the group numbers as well as other numbers as decided by the Director and based on scheduling and availability.
How does the song selection process happen?
In participating in the musical fundraiser you commit to raising your pledged amount. We make every effort to make sure it is not stressful, give you the tools and support you need to ensure that you reach your goal. If you have difficulty reaching your goal, let us know and we will help facilitate the process.
What if I have no experience?
That's OK! In fact, that is what we are here for... for you to have a great time! Our experienced professionals will help you shine, and make sure you are comfortable and excited to perform. All you need is enthusiasm and the willingness to try something new.
How many rehearsals will I have and how big is the time commitment?
Rehearsals take place Sundays and Mondays. You will not be required to attend every rehearsal for the songs that you are participating in. The more songs you are in, the more rehearsals you will need to attend. All participants will be required to participate in the technical and dress rehearsals. Every effort will be made to respect your availability.
What happens if I miss rehearsals?
When you reach your goal you receive two (2) tickets to the show.
