A NOTE ABOUT CASTING

A great deal of thought goes into casting for each and every production with many different factors being taken into consideration, none of which is personal. Not all casting decisions will please everyone, but it is important to respect the decisions and accept the casting and move forward in a positive light for the good of the theatre and everyone involved. Discussing or questioning casting is against policy at GCT.

GCT PERFORMER DRESS CODE FOR ALL DRESS REHEARSALS AND PERFORMANCES OF GCT PRODUCTIONS.

(This is not summer day camp, evening classes, or after school program attire.)


GCT has a mandatory “theatre blacks” dress code that must be followed to be able to participate in dress rehearsals and performances. The costumes go ON TOP of this required production dress code. 


During ALL dress rehearsals and ALL performances, you are to ARRIVE to the the theatre dressed in the following. Please do not change into theatre blacks here. ARRIVE and LEAVE in this dress code. The costumes go ON TOP of this dress code. There will be two co-ed dressing rooms with our staff helping the students. 


Boys: Solid black jazz dance shoes, solid black socks, solid black sweatpants/jazz dance pants (must be ankle length), solid black spandex biker shorts/gym shorts worn under jazz pants, solid black or white t-shirt. 


Girls: Solid black spaghetti strap leotard with flesh-tone tights/panty hose (mandatory-no bare legs, solid black jazz dance shoes, solid black sweatpants/jazz dance pants (must be ankle length). 


Hair Girl’s hairstyles that are slick, nicely groomed hair in the following hairstyles are always much nicer on stage than your average pony tail or bun: French Twist, pigtail curls and ringlets, half up half down with curls, and “Little House On The Prairie” pigtail braids. Professional sleek looks really add to the glamour of the stage performance. 


Boy’s and girls hair should ALWAYS be out of the face and off of both eyebrows so the audience can see your eyes and smile. This is MOST important at Leer Photography Night  and at the performances.
