Our Telegrammer program is for children ages 5 and up. The Telegrammer program is an introduction to theater for our youngest children and a stepping stone for children interested in being in the older cast in the future.
Being a Telegrammer(TG) is a fun interactive role with OCCT. Our Telegrammers open up our show and our intermission with a short song and dance. They are responsible for passing out telegrams to all the cast members. The commitment hours for the parents are less that the older cast members. We are a volunteer run organization and all parents of Telegrammers are required to volunteer their time during the run of the shows by supervising backstage and/or working the Telegram/Flower table in the lobby at least 4 of the 8 shows.
Rehearsal requirement is also less than the older cast. During the school year the Telegrammers rehearse on Saturday, but will be asked to leave Monday & Wednesday nights open in case the TG’s need an extra rehearsal. During the summer the TG’s typically rehearse on Monday & Wednesday nights, but will be asked to leave Saturday’s open.
The Telegrammer cast fee is $120.00.
