2019 Warrick County Summer Musical Audition Info & Registration

Registration must be completed for cast, crew and orchestra

Due to the inordinate number of students in previous years who registered, auditioned, were cast, accepted role(s), and subsequently dropped out prior to rehearsals beginning, the registration process includes the registration fee. 

The Registration Fee is due at audition. If a student is not cast or declines the role(s) cast in, the check for the registration fee will be destroyed. If a student is cast and accepts the role(s), the registration fee is non-refundable unless there are extenuating circumstances, which are reviewed by the directors and staff on a case by case basis. Make check payable to “WPEF”.
