    Ballet Head Shot

    Please bring a ballet head shot photo to your audition. It may be in color or b/w, and should be no larger than 3x5" in size. Ladies please style hair in a neat bun. Gentlemen should have hair out of eyes and off of face. There is no need to hire a professional photographer. Make-up is not required for the photo or audition. Your photo will be submitted to the casting committee, and will not be returned. Here is an example:




    • There is a non-refundable $200 performance fee after casting is complete (due in full at the first cast meeting in September) for all performers. This fee helps to cover expenses such as costumes, studio and theater rental, production crew, and rehearsal instruction. GCB offers a fundraising program to help families and individuals offset this expense.

    • Performers will be allowed to rehearse only when a liability waiver is signed, and performance fee paid.

    • Rehearsals usually begin the weekend following auditions, and are held on Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday.

    • A production of this kind requires excellent attendance from every cast member. Please give careful consideration before auditioning and committing your family to this three-month long rehearsal schedule. Absences should be communicated in advance to the Director. A cast member may be replaced for any unexcused (or excused) absence during the production season.

    • All rehearsals during "tech week" in December are required. Please clear any school commitment (band, choir, play, orchestra, holiday party, etc.) in September. Don't wait until the last minute to communicate. 
    • All performances are required.
