    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 10. However, please do not schedule appointments, events or trips on
    August 13, August 27, September 10, September 24, or from October 3 through October 30, or on January 14. Excessive conflicts and absences will result in removal from the production.)
