Our heart is to provide affordable theatre for students so we strive to keep our cost minimal. The cost of the show helps us cover the cost of the show expenses. If your student needs a scholarship or you would be willing to offer a scholarship to another student please let us know. Payment is due on the first rehearsal. You may pay by check, Zelle, or PayPal. To pay by PayPal, you can use the Production Orders Tab of this page.
Additional costs associated with the show is the cost of jazz or character shoes and costumes. Some costumes are specific to the character but most costumes can be thrifted and won't cost an arm and a leg. Tickets must be purchased anytime you are seated in the auditorium to watch the show. Ticket prices will be $5 - $10 for this show. There will also be an opportunity for students to purchase show t-shirts, accolade ads in the program for students, concessions, etc.
PARENT VOLUNTEER INVOLVEMENT
Accolade Community Theatre is a volunteer-run organization. We rely on parent involvement to help keep kids safe and ensure our rehearsals and performances run smoothly. You will be asked to volunteer at 2-3 regularly-scheduled rehearsals, as well as take volunteer shifts during tech week and performances. In total, volunteer time may add up to around 20 hours over the course of the semester. We understand there are different seasons of life and there may be special circumstances. We are certainly willing to work with you! But please be aware that participating in a play with Accolade does involve a family time commitment.
You can place your production orders for the Production Fee, T-Shirts, and Accolade ads using the form on this page.
Check back here for tickets.
Please note that tickets are non-refundable.
Velveteen Rabbit Bio Submission
We are hiring Valerie Enoch to make the costumes for us. Ideally, we would like to procure a sponsor or multiple sponsors to help cover the cost of hiring a costume mistress. Another possibility is to ask you to pay $35 per child to help cover this cost. As of right now, we are not collecting any payments from families. We will keep you updated as we know more information on whether or not we will have a sponsor.
Contact Rachel or Desi if you or someone you know might be interested in sponsoring costumes.
For now, we need parents to submit measurements for each of their children participating in Velveteen Rabbit Please submit your measurements IMMEDIATELY!! We need the measurements no later than Wednesday, March 1, 2023.
