Participation in Performing Arts Department Productions and Athletics

2016–17 Guide          4/1/2016

 

For students interested in participating in theater, dance, or music productions or performing arts courses that include a major production, the following information will help them choose their athletics options. Please refer to the information below when completing the Athletics Department Course Requests form.

 

Fall and Winter Mainstage Theater Productions

Students planning to audition for the fall or winter mainstage theater production are required to select an intramural team sport, physical education, dance, or community service, or (if eligible) to omit athletics, during the season in which the production takes place. Students who are cast in a production drop their athletics commitment to participate in the production.

Notes:  

  • Students in grades 9–10 who are cast in the fall mainstage theater production may audition for the winter mainstage theater production only by permission of the Athletics Department and the Performing Arts Department.
  • Students in grades 11–12 cast in both the fall and winter mainstage theater productions must omit one season of athletics, either fall or winter. 

 

Theater 3:  Theater Company and Theater 4: Directors Workshop

Students enrolled in these courses are urged to select an intramural team sport, physical education, dance, or community service, or (if eligible) to omit athletics, during the season in which the production takes place. These students are excused from their athletics commitment during tech week and for performances.

Students enrolled in these courses who wish to participate in an interscholastic team sport require permission from the Athletics Department and Performing Arts Department in order to participate. If permission is granted, these students are excused from their athletics commitment during tech week and for performances.

 

Music Program Ensemble Productions

Students enrolled in a music ensemble course that includes performance are excused from their intramural team sport, physical education, dance, or community service for tech rehearsals and performances. Exemption from participating in an interscholastic team sport for tech rehearsals and performances is addressed on a case-by-case basis by the Athletics Department and the Performing Arts Department.

 

Performing Arts Production Tech Crew and Performing Arts Production Musicians

In any of the three seasons, students who participate in a performing arts production as a tech crew member or as a production musician elect the Performing Arts Production Tech Crew or Performing Arts Production Musician option to satisfy the the Athletics Department requirement in that season.

 

Extracurricular Production Participation 

Crew and musicians participating in Performing Arts Department productions and students serving as actors in Directors Workshop on an extracurricular basis are excused from their intramural team sport, physical education, dance, or community service during tech week and for performances. Exemption from participating in an interscholastic team sport during tech week is addressed on a case-by-case basis by the Athletics Department and the Performing Arts Department.
