Production Operations

Registration & Tuition

  • After receiving the cast list, in order to officially accept your role and join the production, you will need to complete a M.A.K.E. Theatre Registration Form for each student that will be participating. The Registration Form will be shared in the cast list email and available on our website.
  • Tuition is due at the time of registration and may be paid in full or in 3 installments. Tuition costs will vary, determined by the production title and specific needs, and will be provided on the production information page. Two performance tickets are included in your tuition.
    • If there is a financial need please reach out to our Head of Theatre and allow us to work with you and your family.
    • Sibling, First Time and ‘Bring a Friend’ discounts are available. Please reach out for more information.


Please communicate freely with us during the entire audition and production process. You will receive an invitation to join our Google Classroom – we will have one for each production. Be sure to accept and join the Classroom as this is where all important information will be shared and communicated. We are honored to teach your students and share this experience with them! Communication is important through this process and is welcomed.

  • Heather Hangen – Head of Theatre Department –


  • M.A.K.E. Theatre will present a rehearsal plan with each production. Your family will know the dedicated amount of hours you can plan for as you review each production opportunity.
    • Not every character will be called to every rehearsal. Although most central characters will attend almost every rehearsal, the number of rehearsals you attend depends on your role in the show.
  • We ask students to attend 80% of the rehearsals scheduled; however, we understand that often we may have things pop up that will challenge the plan. We will work through the rehearsal scheduling challenges with your family if the need arises.
    • Sick Policy: You must be free from fever and/or symptoms for 24 hours without medication.
  • Bring: Your script, a pencil, and a water bottle to EVERY rehearsal.
  • Attire: Rehearsal attire needs to be comfortable clothing that will allow you to move for blocking and choreography. Shoes that are supportive and comfortable are encouraged. Due to choreography and movement, the safety of your student is our utmost concern.
    • The following clothing items are NOT allowed per M.A.K.E. Greatness Academy policy:
      • Clothing with profanity or offensive symbols
      • Revealing necklines
      • Backless shirts or dresses
      • Bare midriffs
      • Shorts or skirts shorter than mid-thigh

Tech Week

  • Tech Week Rehearsals will be held at the performance venue, which will often be a different location than rehearsals. This will be communicated in advance.
  • Tech Week Rehearsals are typically 4 hours each night.
  • Actors must commit to attending each night of tech and all performances. Tech week is mandatory as each student is valuable in this process and they are all needed.
  • Tech week is where all the fun and work begins to come together. This is a crucial week and plays a huge factor in performance comfort level as we approach opening night. Working with the set, on stage, managing props and performing in costumes provides the opportunity to make sure they are confident in their performances. With that being said, it is a long week for all, but specifically the younger students so the team will often allow the younger students some flexibility in scheduling. This will be communicated ahead of time for all families.

Parent Volunteer Commitment

Parent volunteers are needed to support the production by helping with rehearsals, costumes, tickets, backstage, props, sets, promotion, programs, volunteer coordination and concessions. Parents will sign up for volunteer coordinator positions the first two weeks of the production and additional volunteer opportunities during our performance times through a sign up genius prior to tech week. If you have a special request for an area that you feel you would be able to serve best please let us know.


Families are responsible for providing their own costumes for each production. We will have a costume coordinator who will create a costume plot – based on the Director’s vision – which will provide guidance and instruction for selections and purchases. Our goal is to always be mindful of keeping costume costs to a minimum. Each production is different and often requires different needs; however, this will all be communicated prior to registration for the production.


Tickets will be sold through an online ticketing system and will be required to attend performances. Tickets prices will vary based on the production title. We hope that all families will participate in sharing the word and helping MAKE Theatre fill the audience.
