EMCEE RESPONSIBILITIES - Please don't audition unless you agree to do all of this.
If you are chosen to be an Emcee for ROCK:
You will need to be at all ROCK meetings for rehearsal. If you are unable to be at the meetings (except in case of emergency), you may be replaced. If you know of a schedule conflict before auditioning, please let Becki know. For meeting dates, please visit www.bwcumc.org/ROCK
There will be a leadership retreat in Jan. This is not mandatory, but strongly encouraged. We can get a lot of rehearsal time in over that weekend.
You will need to stay with the ROCK team at ROCK. You will not stay with your church. You will be with the other emcees all weekend. You may not leave to go hang out with your church group.
You will need to arrive at ROCK on Friday no later than 3:00 PM. If you are unable due to school obligations, you need to let Catalina and Maxine know at least by Jan 15 so appropriate plans can be made.
The Team Leads, Catalina and Maxine, and your chaperones need to know where you are at all times during the ROCK weekend. They don't have time to try to find you.
You will need to memorize the scripts BEFORE getting to ROCK as well as adjust to last-minute changes.
You will need to follow instructions from Team Leads and chaperones.
You will keep a positive attitude, good humor, and appropriate behavior.
You need to remember that you are not onstage for your own glory, but the glory of God!
