form to be signed at least three days prior to the absence.

members of the company the best atmosphere in which to attain the goal of achieving the best show
possible. I understand that as the date of the show approaches it may be necessary to spend additional
time in rehearsal. This will include the possibility of longer rehearsal times, additional rehearsal times,
and/or weekend rehearsal times.

7.

provide portions or all of the costumes for the part I am cast for. Any costume provided to me by the
