*At times, we may need to put a younger child in an older cast to play a “young” or “small” role.
*Kids that fall on one of the age bubbles (usually 8 yr olds and 6th graders) may be placed in either age group depending on availability, maturity and cast sizes.  Exact age breakdowns for each cast are determined after auditions, keeping in mind total enrollment with the goal being to keep each cast size equal.
