Participants must be able to miss 2 half days of school per month and must attend fall rehearsals and brush-ups throughout the year. Participants are responsible for transportation to show venues; RFKT does not provide transportation. If a participant cannot attend a performance or rehearsal, parents are responsible for contacting participant’s counterpart - in advance - to try to arrange for a cover or switch. If a participant misses a show or rehearsal, continuation in the program will be at RFKT’s discretion. If cast, there is no cost to participate, however, a $4.95 processing fee will be incurred. If cast, there is also a security deposit of $250. This is charged only if the child needs to be replaced (either due to missed rehearsals, not accepting a role after being cast, or dropping out of the program), pulls out of a show after confirming, or misses a performance with less than 24 hrs notice. A portion of the deposit may be charged if performance RSVP requests or the end of year survey are not responded to in a timely manner, or if brush-up rehearsals are missed. Participants who do not comply with this Participation Policy may be removed from the program and their account put On Hold, as described in RFKT's Standard Agreement
, until parents, participant and RFKT can reach an agreement moving forward.
