The date for the VHSL regional theatre festival is tentative. It is expected that students participating in the festival play will change any plans that conflict with the date for this festival and the rehearsals which will be scheduled to prepare for it.
In the event that Stafford advances to the state level, weekday after-school rehearsals will be added as needed (2:30pm-5pm, or until 6pm on days immediately preceding the festival performance.)
On their cast / crew information forms, students were asked to list any periods of time during the Summer during which they will be out of town and unavailable to meet with the directors, as well as conflicts with the above schedule or other extracurricular activities in which they will be involved in the Fall and Winter and when they occur. (Allowances may be made at the discretion of the directors for reasonable conflicts which are reported at a later date, such as medical appointments, which are not foreseeable at this time. These conflicts should be submitted by the first rehearsal on August 13. However, please do not schedule appointments, events or trips on August 17, August 30, September 14, September 28, or from October 1 through November 3, or on January 11. Excessive conflicts and absences will result in removal from the production.)
