TIME COMMITMENT 
The SAHS Players are dedicated to providing a quality educational and artistic experience to as many students as possible. Since we all have many time obligations and family commitments we are striving to give you detailed information on rehearsal schedules so you can make informed choices for your student and your family. We will do our best to honor the schedule we present by making as few or no changes to the schedule and by always starting and stopping on time. 
COSTUMES
Costumes will be provided for the main costume pieces for each character. Individual students will be asked to provide appropriate undergarments and shoes. We will send out information after rehearsals begin outlining the specific items needed for each student. Information regarding hair and make-up will be sent home before our tech week. 
COMMUNICATION 
The SAHS Players website, http://www.sapublicschools.com/mhs/advisors/theater will be our primary means of communication. We will also use Remind 101.  Remind 101 is an outgoing message service.  For Middle/High School text @2018playm to 81010: for Elementary students text @2018playem to 81010.  If you have not used Remind before it will ask your name (please put students), if you have used Remind it will add you with your existing name.  We will post all schedules and pertinent show information to the website. Please check the website often. All rehearsal schedules will be posted in a timely manner. 
ABSENCES 
Rehearsal conflicts are difficult on everyone. Actors who have three or more unexcused or unreported absences may be asked to meet with the directors to discuss their role in the show. To report any upcoming absences please contact the director at pstratton@sapublicschools.com 
BEHAVIOR/DISCIPLINE POLICY
SAHS Players follows the same rules of conduct as students are expected to follow during the school day, as outlined on the SAMHS Handbook. 
CLOSED REHEARSALS AND CHAPERONES 
Rehearsals are considered ―closed rehearsals.  Family and friends are asked to wait outside of the rehearsal area for your students. This keeps our noise level and distractions to a minimum. However, if you would like to observe rehearsals we encourage you to become a rehearsal chaperone. You can sign up for one or more rehearsals depending upon your availability. Chaperones will be asked to help monitor noise levels and student activity during rehearsal times, as well as supervise daily clean up. We really look forward to any helpers on Mondays and Thursdays in particular when we have full cast calls. Sign up information will be provided at the parent meeting.
VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS 
It takes a small army to make these productions! That’s where our parents come in. We ask that each parent take on a pre-production and a production job so that we share the workload. If you have a special area of expertise that you would like to offer help with, we would be love to hear from you! We will be covering more information on our volunteer jobs at the parent meeting.
