MAINSTAGE AND EDGE AUDITION FAQ

THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING AUDITIONING AT RANDOM FARMS!

Parents, please read this important information before signing your child up for an audition.

Casting Policy / Financial Commitment:
When registering for an audition appointment, you will be asked to list the casts for which your child is available and any roles that s/he is willing to accept. If Random Farms is able to cast your child in a role and a cast that is marked as acceptable on the registration form, then you are responsible for paying the program tuition. When registering for an audition appointment, no payment is required.  If you child is cast in the program, we will ask for payment before the cast list is posted. There are no refunds or credits if your child leaves the program. If you child is not cast in the program, there are no charges.
