Mary Poppins Rehearsal, Meeting and Event Information


Regular rehearsals will take place Sunday afternoons, and Monday and Wednesday evenings. See locations below.

Our first rehearsal will take place at Beth Sholom on Sunday, November 5th (2-5PM). Regular rehearsals will generally take place Sundays (2-5PM at Beth Sholom), Mondays (7-10PM at AJ), and Wednesdays (7:00 PM-10:00 PM at Beth Sholom) starting Monday, October 24th, excluding Thanksgiving and winter break as needed. Not everyone will be called for all rehearsals until we begin running full sections of the show after the beginning of the year. Efforts will be made to have multiple groups rehearsing at the same time to maximize the value of our time together.


As a valued and valuable member of our team, you are responsible for preparing your role as well as supporting our show’s success, including:

Rehearsal attendance - with your audition sign-up you will submit a list of rehearsal conflicts. Once rehearsals begin you are expected at all rehearsals for which you are called, ready to begin 5 minutes before call time. Two further absences may require reducing your role in the show.

Final rehearsals & performances - “Hell week” begins the Sunday before our first performance. Call on that Sunday is at 10:30 AM. You will be expected at the theater all of Sunday afternoon at least until 6:00 PM (extended Dress Rehearsal), 6:00-10:30 PM Monday - Wednesday (Dress Rehearsal), and 1.5 hours prior to each performance.

Set construction/move-in/strike - All performers are required to participate in at least 2 construction/painting sessions (Sunday mornings TBA), moving the set from Beth Sholom to our theater at Gratz College (Sunday February 11th), and strike (dismantling and returning pieces to Beth Sholom) immediately after our final performance. Strike shouldn’t take much more than 1 hour with everyone’s participation.

Sales - our show simply cannot happen without financing from ad and ticket sales. Everyone on our team is expected both to promote ticket sales, especially to family and friends, and to sell ads in our show program.

COVID-19 - We strongly recommend, but do not currently require, being up to date with the latest vaccines available to you. Please understand that we are beholden to the policies of our host synagogues, which are subject to change.
