Cast Info

Welcome!  We’re so excited you are here!  We hope you are geared up and ready to get this party started.  We’re looking forward to a great show with you!!

We’ll use this page to share important information with you. The most recent info will be at the top of the page.  


Rehearsal photos/videos: We have created a shared Google folder that you can put any pictures or videos from rehearsal into. Some of what you put into this folder will be in our final cast video that is shared at the cast party after the show is over.
Here is the link to the Google folder:
Sharing videos online…for this show, we are allowed to share small amounts of video online but due to copyright, we ask that you don’t share rehearsal videos online if it has the music tracks playing in the background. You can share anything that we have created that is on our Huckleberry Star social media business accounts (FB and IG). We will have some video with tracks there but not to exceed what is in our contract. Still photos of rehearsals are totally fine to share!

If you have scheduling conflicts or if you’re running late to rehearsal, please communicate with our stage manager, Elena Maddy.  You can reach her by text or email.  (916) 749-9613  However, Elena will be out of the country until September 18th. Please email the main huckleberry email address if you need help while she is gone.

September 6th: First rehearsal!  This will be a read-through/sing through of the entire show and will go until 9:30 pm.  

Scripts: We are not charging a script deposit for this show so please take good care of your script and do your best not lose it!  For this show, scripts CANNOT be written in with anything other than pencil and all pencil marks must be erased at the end of the show when you turn your script in. We also have an electronic script option for you.  Please click on the script tab in the menu for information on how to get access to the electronic script.  

Bios: You will need to write a bio that will be in the program and shared online.  The deadline for getting your bio turned in is September 28th.  We have two options for you:

Costumes: We will be bringing in most of the cast for a separate costume fitting appointment.  Please see the costume tab in the menu to schedule your costume fitting time slot!  


Invited dress rehearsal:  We will not be able to have an invited dress rehearsal for this show as we have in the past.  Instead we will be offering each cast member 4 comp tickets to any of the 4 performances.  Please get in touch with Laura to get those comp tickets.  

Selling tickets: The best thing you can do to make this a successful show is bringing a positive attitude and also helping us sell tickets!  Talk to everyone you know and personally invite as many people as you can!!  We really rely on our cast to help spread the word far and wide!  The website you can send people to in order to purchase tickets is:
