Commitment To Diverse, Equitable, & Inclusive Theater Practices:


RMT strives to create an artistic environment where diverse voices are promoted, supported, and celebrated. In partnership with RMT’s DEI Consultant, the Legally Blonde production team is committed to identity-, color-, and ability- conscious casting. We encourage performers of all ages, backgrounds, identities, body types, and abilities to audition.

 

All roles are open and unpaid. RMT does not precast any role in any production.

 

Rehearsal and Financial Commitment:

 

RMT productions typically rehearse Monday through Thursday from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM and one weekend block of 4 hours (typically Saturday from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM). Not all performers will be required at every rehearsal. Conflicts added after auditions may result in roles being forfeited at the production team’s discretion.

Load-in and Tech rehearsals will take place from 9am-5pm on October 22nd and 23rd. Dress rehearsals, from October 24-27, will end at 11pm. Brush-up rehearsals will be held between performance weekends on November 3 & 10.

All cast members are required to become members of RMT. Individual membership costs $35 and includes two (2) complimentary tickets for the 2022 Season and voting rights for the year.

 

Cast members are responsible for obtaining the proper footwear for rehearsals

and performances. For health reasons, cast must also supply their own makeup. RMT will provide guidance to explain the concepts, color palette and application techniques.

 

Rockville Musical Theatre acknowledges the financial commitment associated with participating in community theater. The Sonie Mathew Scholarship Fund allows RMT to offer financial support to volunteers who may need assistance in offsetting costs, such as membership dues, travel expenses, stage makeup, dance shoes, etc. Information about this opportunity will be shared upon casting.

 

Carpool options will be facilitated by the production team once the show is cast. If you have any questions or concerns about transportation, please contact our producer, Megan Evans at legallyblonde@r-m-t.org.
