My child is interested in taking a class, but they will have to miss several rehearsals. Is this ok?
Attendance is important! Theatre is a communal art. By registering for a class, the student is committing to attend every class and the show for the entire semester. Missing too many classes may result in being asked to take a semester off. We understand that students have school commitments and illnesses. Please notify the office in advance by phone or email if a rehearsal will be missed.

I might be a little late picking up my child from class. Is that OK?
Students must be picked up on time. You may be charged a $20 fee if instructors are routinely asked to stay longer than 15 minutes. Students cannot be left outside waiting. All students will be provided with a contact list for the students in their class and carpooling is strongly encouraged!
