Parents are key to making KMT a successful ministry.
Parent volunteers are involved at every level of KMT, including lay leadership,
art design and every facet of production, excepting casting.
Parents are required to volunteer 10 hours over the course of the show
and must be screened through St. John's prior to volunteering.
Should a parent(s) be unable to volunteer in the above capacity,
a $200 non-participation/buy-out fee (per family) is required.
The non-participation fee option is not available if this is your first show with KMT.
A non-refundable $50 audition fee is required.
Production fees for each cast member are $200
(Fees are non-refundable upon posting of the cast list.)
and $100 in ticket sales per cast member is required.
This helps pay for our director, choreographer, musical director, T-shirts, licensing rights, sets, costume pieces, etc.
Incidental items such as makeup, shoes, leotards and tights may also be required.
Financial Assistance based on need and sibling discounts are available.
KMT is for ALL families throughout the Greater Orange Area with children ages 8-18 from the local community who can commit to rehearsals and shows.
If you are interested in becoming part of the KMT family or would like to learn more, please visit our audition page OR CONTACT US!
WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT?
Each family is a unique PART of this ministry
and KMT provides a role for every MEMBER. DURING OUR FALL AND SPRING SHOWS, Cast members need to be available for 6-10 hours of rehearsals for 12-16 weeks and one week of daily dress rehearsals. Families are required
to contribute at least 10 hours of time
to assist in the production
(sets, costumes, etc.)
