I would also like information about this. We were also told to beware of the High School Program when we get there. She also has been cast in almost everything outside of school, but wants the school lead more than anything. They continue to tell us that this program is for kids who normally won't get a lead outside of school. Have you ever heard them say, "Heh Joey do you think you want to be the quarterback this year for the football team?" No it is about winning and playing the best kids even in High School Sports. I have no idea why theater would be different & why they put the really talented one in the ensemble.
I would also like as much information as there is out there. Excellent post. We share your frustration.
