Summer 2018

Let our imagination begin…Congrats Willy Wonka Cast :



1st Rehearsal:  Tuesday May 15, 2018.  Company Meeting 6:00.  All cast called 6:30-9:30.  Children 14 and under may leave at 8:00 Charlie, Veruca, Augustus, Mike and Violet will be asked to remain at rehearsal

Rehearsals: Rehearsals begin May 15, 2018.  The time of rehearsals are Monday-Friday 6:30-9:30. Everyone will not be called every night until after school releases and children chorus are released at 8:00 pm until school is dismissed in June.  Charlie, Veruca, Augustus, Mike and Violet will be asked to remain at rehearsal when needed.  We are unable to accommodate early release for lead children except under certain exceptions.  Please see the director if this is a problem.  Rehearsals are located at Millwood Methodist Church 3919 Portage Street Kalamazoo, MI 49001 until we move to Comstock Auditorium on July 2, 2018.

Fee and Expectations:  There is a $25.00 participation fee for all cast members.  We do have scholarships for those that need help and we will work with EVERY family to ensure that the participation fee is not a burden or a  deterrent for auditioning.  We also ask that each child has one adult volunteer as a parent monitor on one night during rehearsals.  Although these are the only requirements- Center Stage Theatre runs on volunteers and there will be plenty to do to make this show come alive and we thank EVERYONE in advance for volunteering and becoming part of the Center Stage Theatre Family!

Shows: July 13 at 7:30, July 14 at 7:30, July 15 at 2:00, July 20 at 7:30, July 21 at 2:00 and 7:30, July 22 at 2:00

This is going to be a fun filled summer.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the director at
