NOTE: This course spans two full terms of afterschool programming as well as extra daytime auditions, rehearsals and dress/tech rehearsals amounting to over 42 hours in total. Please carefully consider the time commitment involved before registering as this is a group activity which relies on full attendance and participation and note all the dates above to confirm your child’s availability, especially extra full day rehearsals. OUR POLICY ALLOWS FOR A MAXIMUM of 4 hours of absences (2 regular or one long rehearsal). We reserve the right to reassign roles and/or require make up lessons with an additional fee due to poor attendance. By doing so we can continue to provide quality, educational arts programming and a positive performance experience for everyone.

In addition, policies and practices stated in the parent handbook, particularly pertaining to student conduct and code of behaviour, apply during this activity as with all other after school programs.

The program fee of $485 per student (including tax) includes 40 plus rehearsal hours, keepsake script, all rehearsal materials and rental costume for one performance. To register, please fill out the registration form by Friday, Nov. 15th, 2019.

This program fills up quickly so please register early to avoid disappointment!
