Think of it more as a job than a hobby in terms of commitment.
We rehearse 3 evenings per week (7.30pm to 9.30pm)(usually Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
You must be prepared to be available for these 3 evenings, but after the rehearsals schedule has been made up, not all people will be required at all rehearsals.
Once you are cast in a role you will receive a rehearsal schedule which shows exactly when you are required. If you are unable to make it on an occasion you must ring and let us know otherwise you will be letting everyone else who has made the effort to be there down.
In the week leading up to performance time (Production Week) you will be expected to be readily available any evening of that week, for the times when we are able to get the theatre to rehearse.
All of the performance times are strict requirements. There is no point in auditioning for a role unless you are absolutely certain that you can make all performance dates. All actors are required at the theatre on performance nights one hour before the performance begins.
