Members of the Company are reminded that academic eligibility is an important part of this commitment. You must be enrolled in at least five classes, have a GPA of 2.0+ and be passing ALL (even more than 5) current classes for the present semester to avoid difficulties. Several members of the Company have concerns with non passing grades on the previous report card, and so are already on activities probation. When the early April grading period ends, a second consecutive term of non passing scores would require us to remove you from the production.
in light of this...
members of the Company (other than Belle, Beast & Gaston) will be asked to be familiar with at least one featured role, in case any emergencies arise.
