Winter Edge Auditions

A fabulously fun award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Action-packed and exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances – this musical is so much fun, it should be illegal!

Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

The program runs early November through late January.

FEES & POLICIES

FINANCIAL COMMITMENT

$1,000 – Subsidized tuition
$1,667  – Actual cost

  • Did you know Random Farms is a non-profit and tuition only covers 60% of the cost of putting a child through the program?
  • Our subsidized tuition prices make participating affordable to a more diverse community.
  • Please consider paying the actual cost, and everything over the subsidized tuition amount will be a tax-deductible donation! This will help support our outreach efforts, which include providing scholarships, discounted tickets, and free performances to those in need.
  • There is no fee to audition. RFKT is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. In order to cover production costs, programs are tuition based. If cast, there is a $1000 (subsidized tuition) or $1,667 (actual cost) registration fee to participate in the production. Parent/Legal Guardian is financially responsible for fee if student is cast in a role parent (or performer over age 18) says they will accept on the audition form. Cast member is also responsible for providing their own shoes, tights/socks and undergarments, as per the costume memo (emailed and/or posted online after rehearsals begin).

SCHOLARSHIPS

A limited amount of need-based financial aid is available. The scholarship application must be submitted at least 1 week before auditions begin.

PARTICIPATION POLICY

Absences due to illness will be granted but please note that this is a rigorous program that requires commitment from everyone involved. We expect participants to be at all scheduled rehearsals unless a previous conflict has been submitted or they are ill.

“Shadowing” (making up a missed rehearsal) is permitted on a limited basis. Pre-approval by the director is required. Performers are encouraged to contact their counterparts and arrange a “switch” should a rehearsal conflict arise.

Participants are required to attend and participate in (and may not arrive late to, or leave early from) our final studio run-thru (rehearsal #25) and tech week rehearsals. Please make sure to double-check your child’s schedule to ensure their availability for these mandatory rehearsals. We are unable to make exceptions to our absence policy. If your child misses a mandatory rehearsal, they will not be allowed to perform in the final show.

All participants must return all loaned materials (including scripts and costume pieces) in good condition. Participants are responsible for providing their own shoes, socks/tights and undergarments as per the costume memo (emailed and/or posted on line once rehearsals start). Participants who do not comply with this participation policy may be removed from the program and their account put On Hold, as described in RFKT’s Standard Agreement, until parents, participant and RFKT can reach an agreement moving forward.

COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES

All rehearsals and performances will be mask-optional. Random Farms reserves the right to make any performances/rehearsals mask-mandatory and/or require Covid-19 testing prior to performances should the need arise.

For the protection of your child, other children, and our staff, please do not bring your child to rehearsal if they are sick or have had a fever within the past 48 hours. If your child tests positive for Covid-19, please let us know.
