Non-Lied Center Rehearsals:
If a performer refuses to comply with the rules and expectations listed, he or she can expect to have a conference with the Artistic Director.  If the Artistic Director does not note improvement, the following consequences will occur:
Step 1:  The person in charge will ask the performer to sit down or leave the room.    
Step 2:  The understudy will be asked to perform the role of the offending cast member for that rehearsal and, at the discretion of the Artistic Director or Ballet Mistress, possibly for the actual production.
Step 3:  The offending performers’ records will follow him or her to the next audition of LMBC.  The Artistic Director will give the President a list of performers who will not be eligible to audition the following year.
