Everyone who signs up is guaranteed to be in the show!

Participation Fee: Sign up and pay your deposit by January 31 and pay the discounted price of $299 for our program!  This participation fee helps us cover production costs including costumes, sets, props, rights, and more and helps to ensure we can put on a quality show.  A 50% deposit of $149.50 is due by January 31 to receive the discounted price, and the remaining $149.50 will be due on the first day of the program.  Payment can be made in cash, checks, or via credit card or Venmo (for an additional fee).  The deposit and final payment are nonrefundable.

Auditions: Each participant will take part in an audition on the second day of our program.  While everyone is guaranteed to be cast in the show, auditions help us determine which role(s) each person receives.  Audition material will be taught on the first day of the program and auditions will be held the following day.

Rehearsals: Rehearsals will take place Monday-Thursday starting July 1, 2024 from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM (no rehearsal July 4) at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church located at 708 Route 88, Point Pleasant NJ.  All cast members are called to every rehearsal.  Rehearsal attendance is key to the success of our show, and all participants are expected to prioritize attending every rehearsal.  Attendance at tech week rehearsals is mandatory to participate in the show.

Performances: We will hold TWO performances of "Willy Wonka Jr." one on Friday August 2 (evening) and one on Saturday August 3 (matinee).  Participants must be available for both shows in order to participate in the program.

Production Team:

Director - Eric Pertgen

The aim of this program is to give young performers an authentic musical theater experience, complete with auditions, tech rehearsals, and high-quality shows, all while learning the ropes of musical theater and honing their skills in acting, singing, and dance.  At the Artist Collective Troupe, we pride ourselves on putting on excellent shows regardless of the age of our cast.  While this program will serve as a learning experience for our young performers, it is a full, unabridged production of "Willy Wonka Jr." and our cast will be expected to be responsible, committed, and ready to do their best, so they can walk away from this experience better performers and proud of what they have achieved.
