Keep in mind that while a lot of fun Neko Squared requires dedication and effort so we would ask that during cons you will be performing with us that this will be your first priority. Do you agree and understand? 8. Do you understand that this is a volunteer position and therefore unpaid? 9. Please present your chosen monologue of 1-2 minutes in length. Break a leg!"
