Company Members: An actor’s typical workday is made up of two segments: 12:30 to 5:00 and 6:30 to 10, 6 days weekly. Most Cabaret rehearsals will take place in the morning, 9 to 11:30. TOFY camp begins at 8:30 and releases around 2. Workday for Tech staff is determined by the TD, typically 9 to 12:30 and 1:30 to 5, except on show days. For non-local company members, housing is provided in a dormitory. You will likely have one roommate and shared bathrooms. All company actors, dancers, and technical staff will be working around and with power tools, paints, and other materials typical of a backstage environment. In addition to rehearsals, company members may be asked to work backstage, front of house, and participate in local marketing events.
