Commitment to Project
- If chosen you will recieve a pdf version (copy) of the story to rehearse with. You are not required to memorize the story though it is strongly encouraged for optimal performance so you are not reliant on the book. You will have the ACTUAL story book in hand for effect, and you will be reading from it.
- You will recieve a rehearsal schedule. Rehearsals will take place Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until the final performace recording. Rehersals will be prescheduled with you, and they will be entirely virtual.
- The final performance will be pre recorded. Selected performers must be willing to meet with the Director & Technical Producer/Director at the Studio in the MIll Building In Littleton where The Cannon Theatre formerly was to perform and record the final piece, individually. All parties will be masked and all equipment will be cleaned before and after use. There will be no more than 4 people working at a time. This method allows us to create a quality performance with continuity in lighting, sound, atmosphere, and recording quality. We want to create a Holiday viewing experience for our patrons they will never forget while maintaining safe social distancing and keeping everyone's best interest well in hand.
