Company Captains are a select group of students who learn through teaching and seeing the production process from another point of view. Captains will gain experience as an assistant to the director and mentor to younger cast members. Captains are part of the directing team. They help develop, teach, and run the show. From pre-production to auditions, rehearsals, and performance, Captains play an important role.
Captains can select a specific After School session they are interested in applying for.
Who is Eligible to Apply?
Company Captains must be high school or junior high school students who have previously been in a Young Actors Stage production. All Captains must currently be part of the Main Stage Cast in order to learn the show.
Captains will meet with the director after Main Stage rehearsal each week to discuss the upcoming After School rehearsals, and work together on choreography, blocking, music, and show design. Captain's Class will get the team on the same page so everyone can be confident to help lead the upcoming rehearsal.
After School Rehearsals
During rehearsals captains will assist the director. They may be asked to do everything from leading warm-ups to helping teach choreography, music, and scene work. Captains may break off and work with smaller groups or individuals while the director is working with others. Captains are mentors and an example for the younger students to follow.
During tech week and performances the captain will be the Stage Manager. They will help teach the other crew members about scene changes, props and set needs, and everything that goes on backstage. Captains lead the crew, are an example to the cast, and help run the show!
