Hampden Meadows School

Registration closes on February 27th. Please make a note of the deadline as we will not be able to accept any registrations beyond this date.
Auditions: Everyone gets a part! Auditions will be held immediately after school in the HMS cafeteria until 5:00pm on Monday, 3/5, Thurs, 3/8 OR Friday, 3/9. Please choose your audition day carefully when registering as we will not be able to make any changes to audition day selections. There are a limited number of spots for each audition day available on a first come, first-served basis. This is done in an effort to evenly balance the number of students at each audition day. Students only need to attend one audition date.
Rehearsals will take place Tuesday & Thursdays beginning March 20. A complete rehearsal schedule will be provided at the start of the program. Rehearsals take place in the HMS multi-purpose room immediately following school dismissal until 5:00pm. Children will not be called to every rehearsal. Note: Those cast in lead roles may be called to occasional Friday rehearsals.
Program Fee: $180.00 for all registrants. Sibling discount of $25 off second and subsequent students’ registration fees. Scholarships are available.
