Open Rehearsal Procedures

1. Sign up by the Sunday before: All attendees must sign up with the CYS Manager by Sunday evening prior to the rehearsal date in order to be placed on the Door List. Attendance is limited to current YO Members only (no parents or guests). The CYS Manager will be onsite at all times. Late submissions will not be considered.

2. Arrive On Time: Attendees should arrive no later than 7:15 PM. Due to union regulations, the rehearsal will start promptly and no movement is allowed on or off stage during the rehearsal. There will be one break. Any late attendees will be held at the door may or may not be seated.

3. Be Professional: Food and drink, phones, cologne/perfume, talking, movement and other distractions are disruptive to the rehearsal and are not permitted. Anyone in violation may be asked to leave the rehearsal. YO Members will have time to converse and ask questions during the break. Attendees will only be permitted backstage, onstage or in the reserved section of the house.

4. No Shows: Due to the limited capacity of the Open Rehearsals, members who sign up but do not attend prevent other members from enjoying this benefit. Members who do not show up without a reasonable explanation, will not be permitted to sign up for any future Open Rehearsals.

5. High Demand: Members may be limited to three (3) open rehearsals per season to give all members an opportunity to attend.
