Conduct –
  • Theatre discipline is an important part of this learning experience. Students are expected to show courtesy, honesty and respect for teachers, volunteers, and each other, including property belonging to other students and to the theatre.
Student Behavior Policy –
When theatre discipline becomes a problem in the class or in rehearsal, the following warning system will be followed:
  • Serious disruption of classroom activities will invoke a warning to the student.
  • If behavior is not modified, a Parent Intervention Notice (PIN) is sent home, requiring parental and student signatures.
  • A subsequent warning will require the scheduling of a student/parent conference to discuss ways to modify behavior.
  • Continued disruption may result in suspension or expulsion based on the agreement reached at the student/parent/teacher conference, subject to the approval of the Executive Director.
Safety Issues –
    • Parents are expected to bring students to the appointed drop-off location no more than 15 minutes before the start of camp, class, or rehearsal. There will be no supervision available before that time. Students must be picked up within 15 minutes after the end of camp, class, or rehearsal. Late pick-ups and early drop-offs will billed at the rate of $15 if picked up or dropped off after/before 15 minutes (or fraction thereof) and an additional $15 if picked up or dropped off after/before thirty minutes (or fraction thereof). Due to the many obligations of our teachers and directors, we stress the importance of timely pick up.
