How do I know which level to enroll my child in?
Our level 1 and basic skill classes are best for students who have not had much (or any) theatrical experience and would like to build their confidence, acting, singing, and dancing skills and have fun! Level 2 classes are more our intermediate level classes and are made for students with some theatrical experience. Level 3 is made for our advanced students and participation is determined by audition. For a graphic representation of our class levels, please follow this link.

I registered my child after the enrollment deadline. How do I know if he will get a spot?
In the event that you register after the enrollment deadline, you will be contacted a week before the class begins letting you know if a spot is available. Please do not come to the class if you have not been enrolled in the program.
How do I know when my child’s final showing is?
During the school year, the last day of the program is also the day of the final showing. Students should be dropped off for class at the usual time and the doors will open to family and friends between 45 minutes and a half hour before the class ends. For the winter break and summer camps, the final showing may take place on either the second to last or last day of the program. Times will vary based on the number of other final showings that day and available spaces. Please check the initial parent email and handout or with your teacher if you have any questions.
