Students 18 and under, need a minimum of 12 AE Arts Education Credits to be cast in a Main Stage Musical. Credits can be for any AE Workshop, Class, Camp or Intensive. Alternatively, credits may be purchased prior to an audition via the AE Ed Credit Bank. Credits are banked at the time of payment (rather than the time of participation) and may be applied to Musical casting once they are banked. Credits are active for one year from purchase and will not carry over year-to-year. These Credits will be applied when the student is cast in a Main Stage Musical and may be used for any AE Educational Program throughout the year.
