The $50 deposit may be paid online with card or PayPal. The remaining registration fee may be paid with cash or card at the time of arrival. Unfortunately, we do not allow checks at this time.

The remainder of the registration fee is due upon arrival on the first day of the camp (Monday).

Each camp costs $149

Children will have 5 minute breaks throughout the day to use the restroom and check their cell phones, if needed. However, cell phones must be turned off or silenced during rehearsal and activities to prevent disruption.
What safety procedures are in place in case of an emergency?
Medical First aid kits are available for minor injuries. In the case of a medical emergency, emergency personnel may be contacted, as well as parents and guardians. Staff and volunteers will address the injury with first aid as necessary while waiting for medical personnel. Earthquakes In the case of an earthquake, there are designated safety areas where campers, staff and volunteers are to wait until it is safe to evacuate the building. Fire In the case of a fire in the building, campers will be escorted safely out of the building to a designated safe space outside. All belongings not already on person must be left behind to ensure safe and timely evacuation. Parents and guardians would be contacted immediately, once children are safely evacuated and emergency personnel have been contacted.

A lockdown procedure occurs if a person deemed unsafe has been seen inside the building. In this case, interior doors are locked, everyone sits silently in a safe location, and law enforcement are contacted.
Can I stay and watch during the camp?
While we understand your interest and/or concerns, parents are asked to leave after drop-off. The reason for this is twofold: 1) The presence of parents and guardians can be a distraction or disruption of the flow of the activities; and 2) We cannot verify that parents and guardians are background checked, which becomes a safety concern for the children and staff/volunteers.
Can I volunteer to help?
At this time, we are only accepting volunteers who are currently teaching in a public school setting and have passed current background checks. This ensures that our volunteers have received adequate training and can verify their background check status.
Can I videotape the performance?
Due to copyright laws, videotaping of any kind during the performance is prohibited.
Can I take pictures?
Please do! As long as your camera or cell phone does not make any sound, you are welcome to take as many photos as you like. You may even share your photos on our Facebook page!
How many people can we bring to the performance?
As many as you like! It's very unlikely that we would go over the capacity limit of the performance space, so feel free to invite family and friends!
