The fine print

  • Parents commit to help their children learn their lines and songs via daily practice. Older children and teens may need minimal support. Younger or less experienced students need direct adult help -- for example, in practicing spoken lines.
  • Families commit to rehearsal attendance as agreed at the time of enrollment (for rehearsal conflicts, see below). Once you have enrolled, unplanned absences should be limited to emergencies only. In case of non-hospital illness, please check with us on the day of rehearsal. Rehearsals are for the participants only; parents do not accompany their children during rehearsals.
One of the reasons drama is so rewarding for participants is that each student has an individual role. Unlike many types of group activities your child may have experienced in which the whole group practices the same thing (such as a choir), the cast members in a play need each other individually present in order to practice together. We recognize that your child may have prior commitments that conflict with some of our weekend rehearsals. In cases where students have an unavoidable conflict, the directors need to be able to consider whether we can accommodate the absence and, if so, to plan accordingly. If you have any potential rehearsal conflicts, please contact Shula to discuss them before enrolling. We may be able to give advance permission to miss a small number of rehearsals on a case-by-case basis. In order to end up with a functioning performance experience for all our participants, we ask families to honor your commitment to rehearsals you've planned to attend.
