We have a full production team that handles most major aspects of the show.  However, participants and/or their families are required to assist with some areas of production, or provide a donation in lieu of service time to help cover costs. Volunteer areas include: ticketing, supervision, make-up, set building and striking the theater upon closing.  We definitely welcome family participation!

After auditions, we will have a 3-days per week rehearsal schedule, usually practicing on Mondays and Thursdays for two hours in the evenings, and Saturday mornings.  There are some times when ensemble cast members will only need to attend one or two rehearsals a week, but during the month before a show, all must attend each rehearsal.  Stage crew must attend rehearsals starting about 1 month prior to showtime.  Our choral group will rehearse approximately one day per week.

What makes Music West different from other theater experiences?

Music West is a family theater organization.  We strive to provide a positive and quality experience for all our participants, of every age,  but with a time commitment that still enables them to stay involved in other activities , whether it be jobs, school or just spending time with their families. Our team has enjoyed success producing high quality, traditional-styled shows with very reasonable rehearsal schedules, based in our local area, and we extend that opportunity to those who are interested in performing on stage or have an interest in technical production or crew.

Our productions involve actors of all ages, both adults and young people, depending upon the current show. Some of our production team members, and even entire families, have also been cast in the show as well.  Characters are cast according to whom the audition team feels will best portray the roles in the production, although the emphasis is for adults to portray adult-aged roles, and likewise for our younger participants.
