Does anyone have Summer Stock Experience they can share? Straw Hats/NETC etc?

Hi. Does anyone have Summer Stock experience with the Unified Summer Stock Companies such as Straw Hats or NETC. I'd love to hear about your child's audition and summer stock experiences. Thank you!

    I was hoping someone would post about this soon and would also appreciate some more recent feedback too. My son will do Strawhats in March so I reread the older threads a few weeks ago; not sure if it's because the board isn't as active anymore that it hasn't been an active topic the last couple years. I hope some veteran MT parents will chime in!

    My D has been to SETC and A1s but not Strawhats or NETC. If you have any specific questions and want to send me a message I will do my best to answer. :)

    @TinaBC thanks for commenting on this thread! My D applied for NETC this year and is excited to be considered. How long after applying will she know if she is accepted (or not) to attend?

    @TinaBC - thanks so much for chiming in! Can you tell us - are most of your theatres in the NE area or is it a wider regional mix? I know there are several regional auditions for summer stock but I don't know if that translates into mostly work in that region.

    Hi, CMB625. Your daughter should receive her selection decision email next weekend! Best wishes.

    CaMom13 - our producers are mostly East Coast, but we also have a few from the Midwest and a couple of casting agencies that book theme parks nationwide and cruise ships. We don't tend to get West Coast producers, but I am working on expanding the number of producers that come each year.

    Thank you so much @TinaBC !

    I know some of the large auditions are MT or Dance only, are there any non-MT Acting positions booked through NETC? Also - I know this won't be exact but do you have an estimate for how many total summer jobs are booked from NETC auditions each year?

    Does anyone know when kids are going to start hearing if they are cast or not? My son did A-1s... got a couple of callbacks.

    Wondering if we are going to be able to plan a summer vacation or not.

    I know A1's is early in the audition season, so Theatres like The Lex don't do final casting until mid to end of March. With that said my son has received a couple of offers already through A1's.

    @TexasMTDad The last 2 summers we opted to take an early May vacation (our D got out of school late April). A lot of summer stock places will have the actors arriving sometime mid May or even in June depending on if they got a full summer contract or a contract for partial summer (say, 1 show). Our D didn't know if she booked anything until late April last year and the summer before she had an internship which I'm pretty sure wasn't decided until April also. Haha, we are very envious of the students who get contracts early @Troykat -Congrats!!

    I still have two kids in school, so May is not an option. Looking like late August is not an option either... if he gets a gig.

    My daughter has done MWTA (Midwest Theatre Auditions), SETC, Institute of Outdoor Theatre Audiitions (I think they are now SETC-Outdoor), and UPTAs. She hasn't done A1s, NETC, or Strawhat. The year she was accepted to Strawhat and NETC, she got a job through SETC so she cancelled her Strawhat and NETC spots. It would have been good for her to go to for the experience and exposure, but she was able to save the hotel and transportation costs.

    Hi @TinaBC - did you say NETC decisions emails were coming out this weekend or next? I have a friend whose D is waiting on the email to make Spring Break reservations. Thanks so much!

    @TinaBC, Are the NETC notices going out today for either acceptance or rejection?
