There was an advert in my local paper for "Open Auditions for a (school version) production of 'Les Miserables,'" put in by a theatre school company.
In small letters far below, it added "show fee payable if successful."
Is this kind of thing normal now? Rather than sending children to weekly drama clubs with an "end of term" show every so often, they can just (probably, as I'm guessing almost everybody gets cast...) pitch up and 'pay to be in a show' now?
There's obviously no scam or anything going on, but I'm really curious, as I'd have felt the friendship and tradition that goes with an ongoing theatre group is a huge part of what theatre in general is about?
