How does payment work?
We accept PayPal and Venmo. More information will also be included in your welcome packet.
Is there a deposit required? What’s the cancelation fee?
Upon registration, you will receive an invoice for a non-refundable, 20% deposit to secure your place in class. Any cancelation after the full payment is made will result in the payment being rolled over into a future semester. More info can be found in the welcome packet.
I need help with tuition. Is that possible?
Definitely. We have payment plans available and offer several scholarships. Reach out for more information!
What platform will you be using?
We will be using Zoom, and all links will be sent to a parent’s email. Sessions will be locked for security purposes 5 mins. after class begins.
How many students will be in each class?
Each class will have a maximum of 16 students.
Why is there such a wide age range?
One of the best things about theatre is the uniqueness of being in a cast. And casts almost always have diverse ages. We feel by widening the age range, we’re able to maintain that uniqueness and stay close to a typical “in-person” theatrical experience.
Can students take more than one class?
Of course. You can take all four if you want!
What materials will I need?
You will need some sort of device. This can be a computer, tablet, or even a phone (though the bigger the screen the better.) We also recommend having a water bottle nearby, a notebook, and your favorite writing utensil.
Can parents sit in?
Yes, but please limit the interruptions.
