It's show time!!!

It's show time!!! To safely manage our large company, we ask that everyone abide by the following procedures once we move to the theatre. Thank you, in advance, for your cheerful cooperation. It’s going to be a magical adventure!


*The kids have worked hard and are ready to perform! The best way parents/guardians can support them is by ensuring they get ample sleep, time for school work, and “down time” during show week whenever possible so that they will be well rested for performances. Thank you for supporting them during this exciting time!

*A friendly reminder that all rules which apply during school hours apply at all TAG events, including those that take place at the theatre. In addition, everyone is expected to respect the venue, supervising volunteers, and fellow company members. The atmosphere backstage, though very excited, must stay calm and [relatively] quiet so that everyone can hear their cues.

*All cast, stage crew, & volunteers must check in and out at the Call Board for all events at the theatre. Taking these precautions will ensure that everyone is accounted for. Please have patience with this process as we make every effort to protect our kids. 

*The following company members will sign in and out at the Green Room: Munchkins 1&2, Mayor, Barrister, City Fathers, Coroner, Ensemble Munchkins, Tots, Tough Guys, Crows, Jitterbugs, People of Oz, Monkeys, Winkie Guards

*The following company members will sign in at Black Box and out at the Stage Door: Aunt Em, Uncle Henry, Kansas Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, Oz Dorothy, Toto, Glinda, Wicked Witch, Apple Trees, Doorman/Guard, Wizard of Oz, Nikko, Winkie Leader, Oogaboos, Polychromes

*No one will be allowed backstage except for cast members, stage crew, and scheduled volunteers for each event. No exceptions. Parents/guardians, if you need to get in touch with your child after they have checked in, please ask a volunteer at the Call Board and they will assist you.

*Click here for a map and here for a floor plan of the Ballard High School Performing Arts Center.

*Arrival/departure times for all remaining TAG events may be found on the TAG calendar. Prompt arrival is expected. If you are 5 minutes late, a volunteer will call to confirm that you're coming. If you are more than 10 minutes late, an alternate will be called to take your place in that rehearsal/performance. 

*For dress rehearsals: Cast members are to arrive in full costume, no hair or makeup. RATs may wear whatever they like.

*For performances: Cast members are to arrive in full costume, hair, and makeup. For hair/makeup requirements, click here. RATs are to wear all black and their crew shirts, no RAT hats or light-colored clothing (including shoes and socks).

*Do not bring extra clothing or personal items backstage as there is no room to change and items are easily misplaced. Entertainment will be provided.

*No electronics are allowed backstage for cast or RATs. No exceptions.

*Cast & RATs should bring a disposable, nut-free meal to all of their scheduled events at the theatre. Do not send drinks of any kind. Water will be provided backstage at all events. 

*If you have a food allergy, please let us know prior to any events at the theatre by clicking here

*The house doors will open approximately 30 minutes prior to each performance. No one will be allowed into the theatre prior to that time. No exceptions.

*Running time of the show is approximately 80 minutes. 

*Company members will be released to the Callboards in waves following each event. Every child must check out at the Callboard before leaving. We know you’ll be anxious to congratulate your kiddos but please be patient with our volunteers as they account for everyone.
