Full cast attendance at rehearsals is essential to producing a well-prepared and SAFE presentation. This is true for those with speaking roles and for those in the crowd without lines. Some of the most difficult and important preparation for The Living Cross is the work done with crowd blocking and movement. Full attendance at all crowd rehearsals is essential not only for you to learn your role as a cast member—it helps the directors to accomplish their goals and it makes for smoother, quicker rehearsals. We will do our best to avoid scheduling conflicts, but you will be expected to attend all scheduled rehearsals. Plan to leave Saturday mornings (9:00am to 12:00pm) free between February 17 and April 6. You may not need to be present for all of the rehearsals, or for the full morning; however, prior to assignment of roles, we cannot be more specific. It is certain that practices involving the full cast will be on March 16, 23, and 30. Dress rehearsals are on April 2 and April 8 at 6:30 pm. If you are unsure you can meet this obligation but would still like to participate, please speak with Pastor Jung before registering.
The Living Cross is an opportunity for Christians to serve and grow together in the Lord. For that reason, all cast and crew are expected to conduct themselves with a Christ-like spirit of service. We are here to share the Gospel and to grow together in service to the Savior. Any instance of disrespectful or abusive behavior towards any person, or other behavior that undermines a nurturing Christian environment, constitute grounds for removal from service in the presentation. Please help care for and love one another in the Lord!
