GENERAL GROUP INFORMATION
ER I - This cast is considered our professional cast. All decisions will be made by the Creative Director, Jessica Rhodes. Cast members must have participated in the Entertainment Revue organization for at least one year in order to be eligible. We expect to perform in 15-20 shows per year and cast members are required to sign a commitment contract. ER I will rehearse approximately ten hours monthly and most rehearsals will be held on weekends. Sometimes rehearsals will be “extended rehearsals,” which will last for 3-4 hours. This schedule is subject to change as shows are booked. Cast members are required to make the group their #1 priority.
ER II - Cast members are selected by special invitation. Cast members will generally have participated in the Entertainment Revue organization for at least one year. ER II will rehearse approximately nine hours monthly and most rehearsals will be held on weekends. Sometimes rehearsals will be “extended rehearsals,” which will last for 3-4 hours. Occasionally, a weeknight rehearsal will be required. This is considered a semi-professional cast and members must be prepared to handle the rigors of a professional rehearsal environment. Members are required to sign a commitment contract. This schedule is subject to change as shows are booked and cast members are required to make the group their #1 priority.
RAVE REVUE - This cast is an apprentice cast and is open to both new cast members and returning cast members. Rave Revue is a wonderful cast for those hoping to gain on-stage experience, but who are not ready for the demands or commitment level of ER I or ER II. Rehearsal is held 4 times a month for 2 hours – some months may have 5 rehearsals when the calendar permits. Regular rehearsals will be held on Monday evenings from 5:15-7:30pm. This schedule is subject to change as shows are booked and an occasional week night or weekend rehearsal may be required.
