DO I HAVE TO AUDITION?
Yes and No.
You don’t need to audition unless you would like to try for a main lead or solo part. HOWEVER, General Registration will only be opened up AFTER auditions are completed. We will be limiting the number of kids we allow in the cast, so the cast may be full before we can open general registration. Auditions held at 150 East Altamira Ave - Old Hospital
Registration is only available during the audition dates. General registration will not be available until after auditions and ONLY if there are spots available. Everyone must register to be in the show. Please do not register unless you have read this entire FAQs page. Please complete the entire form. You will need to submit a form for EACH child registered. Registration is not complete until the participation fee is paid or scholarship form has been accepted. You will not be added to the cast list until registration is complete.
WILL THERE BE A LIMIT TO THE KIDS WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
YES. Because of the growing number of children who want to be in the musical, CCCMT will limit the number of children we accept. It will be based on first registered and paid - so register early.
There is a fee of $90 to participate in the summer musical. This INCLUDES the costume fee. ( There is a sibling discount. First child is $90.00 - each additional child is $65.00 (example – 2 kids = $155, 3 kids =$220, etc.) PAY NOW
The participation fees are used to pay for building, maintenance, rental fees, royalties, scenery, props, music equipment, theater rental fees etc. Everyone is a volunteer.
Participation fees are NON-REFUNDABLE, so make sure this is something you want to do before registering.
EVERYONE IS A VOLUNTEER:
CCCMT is completely volunteer run (directors, production, costumes, choreographers, etc.) We NEED volunteers to make this production a success. We have several ways to volunteer. (Scenery, props, costumes, make-up, publicity, child wrangling, etc.) Text @cccmtv to 81010 to join our volunteer list.
Please be respectful of every volunteer. We will not tolerate students or parents being disrespectful to our volunteers. This is cause for immediate removal from the show. If you have an issue, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
PARENT REQUIREMENTS/STUDENT REQUIREMENTS:
Please read the Parent/Student Expectations sheet. Please do not register if you cannot abide by these rules.
COSTUME & FEES:
The costume fee is INCLUDED in your participation fee. Depending on your character role, there may be an additional Costume Fee of $15. We try to keep all fees affordable; however, we take great pride in our productions. We strive to provide high-quality, costumes. You may be responsible to provide part or all of your own costume.
-Souvenir -T-shirt: $10.00 (optional)

The parent dedication ad is an optional special message from parents, grandparents, &/or friends to your little star that is printed in the beautiful souvenir program. Order forms are available at the CMT building or contact email@example.com.

-Memory Makers : (Optional)
These are fun souvenir show characters and plush animals. They will include a miniature souvenir program with the cast list.
There will be concessions available to purchase during rehearsals and during the nights of the performances.
We will have some practices in May for select cast members. The main rehearsals will start the first part of June. Practices are 5:00 -7:00, 2-4 times a week for the first 6-8 weeks. Then we will go to 5 day a week practices. Some Saturday practices will be required. You will not be called to every practice.
We understand the importance of family reunions, scout camps, girl’s camps, etc. We work around these important events and allow students to miss some practice time for these special activities. However, it is NOT ok to miss practice because you would rather go swimming, to see a show, or play with a friend. Please make play practice a priority. Scheduled absences should be written on the registration form and approved in advance. More than 3 unexcused absences may result in removal from the show. You may NOT MISS any of the practices during Tech week and dress rehearsals.
COMMUNICATION & NOTICES:
It is the responsibility of the cast members and parents to check the website and calendar for updates and rehearsal times and changes. The website will always have the information you need. We also have a texting system that should help with communication. Please make sure you sign-up to receive these text alerts. All cast members will be added as members of the website which allows access to practice songs and dances. Log-in information will be sent once registration is completed. All information, changes, updates, and practice times will be added to the website. We also highly encourage cast members to become a members our CCCMT Facebook page.

REASON FOR NOT BEING ALLOWED TO BE A PART OF CCCMT:
Disrespect to volunteers or other cast members. We do not turn children away for inability to pay or lack of experience, but we will NOT tolerate disrespect from students or their parents to any of our volunteers or cast members.
HOW DID CCCMT START?
CCCMT was started by a family who wanted to provide musical theater experience for their children and grandchildren. CCCMT is a non-profit (5013c) organization. Every child is given the opportunity to perform; regardless of ability to pay or previous experience. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to shine, because talent is only developed when children are given the opportunity.
