Mar (director of Washington Fencing Academy).

Rehearsal Dates:

Rehearsals start the last week of April (26th). There will be various schedules since there are so many characters/parts.
Dancers must expect to come 2x/week 8:00pm-10:00pm on certain week days (depending on casting) and also every Saturday during the day [official times TBA at audition]. Then, dancers are expected -during the month of June- to rehearse everyday since it is a full-length production (and this schedule will be TBA with at least a day break each week). KHDP will keep in mind the dancer’s given schedules (on the day of the audition) as much as can be allowed. Tech nights are June 14-16. Dress Rehearsal will be June 17. Shows are June 18-20 (4 total). Times are 6-10pm every night and 12noon-10pm on Saturday (2 shows).
