* Production produced and directed by Andy Diskes
*Casting for Adults and older Teens
*We welcome all levels of experience. In Lysistrata's April 2022 version we had several people over 70 who were in their first show! They had a great time and did super! In Neverland, we value kindness, integrity, dependability and hard work as much as talent.
*Radio Style Show
Using scripts/music stands so cast does not have to memorize. Minimal movement.

FINANCIAL INFO(pertains to both productions):
Neverland receives its revenue solely from show fees and ticket sales.
A small amount also on concessions and well-wishes/ads/sponsors.
Update since Covid began:
Since March 2020 we have only been producing about 20 percent of what a normal year would be. We managed to produce Annie while rehearsing (with a several month break) for close to two years.
We also produced small non-musical productions of Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland last summer. We have had a few fundraising campaigns.
This production (along with a youth production we will be announcing soon) will help us pay for our fixed costs such as storage, online presence and some other expenses as well as for the rental of the theater and our small staff.
Each cast member is responsible for the following:
LYSISTRATA SHOW FEE: $75
(Averages to approx $2 an hour to be involved in this production
from start to finish. - These fees usually cover the cost of rehearsal
and performance rental.)
(Reminder show fees are non-refundable.
Show fees are due one week after a role has been offered.)
SELLING TICKETS TO THE SHOW:
Since the majority of the audience comes from family and friends of the cast, we ask that each cast member sell eight tickets to the show.
If for some reason you don't think you will hit that mark, we ask that you make up the difference in sponsorships/ads. We are happy to work with you to make this happen. (Tickets will probably be in the $17 - $20 range .) Thank you.
THERE ARE NO YOUTH PRODUCTIONS SCHEDULED THIS SUMMER.
We will keep you posted in our monthly newsletters as to our future productions. Thank you!
