Script/Costume Fee

We instituted a way for our actors to contribute to the expenses of the shows in a small and consistent way, to help cover the rising costs of producing our shows. The sum from these contributions helps cover the cost of your costume and script rental. It is a one-time fee of $25 for the season. If you are in more than one show, you only pay once.

By accepting the role, you're agreeing to pay the fee, which is due by your first read-through. You can pay in cash, by credit card, or pay up-front here on the website.

ACTORS:  Pay Script/Costume Fee with Paypal.
