IMPORTANT NOTE ON OUR CORE VALUES: Before enrolling in our summer camp, please consider the following…
**You are agreeing to commit your child to the camp’s production and schedule. At Stage Center’s SOPA we believe that a good process begets a good product. Every enrolled student will be required to audition as a part of this process. The audition is for the instructors to assess each student’s abilities and vocal/physical type so that they can be placed in the role that best serves the production and our educational goals. We do not cast based on seniority within the company, nor do we pre-cast any role on student productions. The cast list may not be posted prior to the start of camp. All students interested in our productions and camps are taught to show up with open minds and hearts, eager to have a life-enriching experience. We are not interested in working with students and families who are only seeking leading or featured roles. We teach that theater is about an ensemble coming together to tell a story, and every person involved has a vital role for it’s success. We do not allow ANY CONFLICTS DURING SUMMER CAMP. We ask that you check below for dates and times before enrolling, so that there will be no last-minute hiccups/absences. If you are unsure about some conflicts with our schedule, please feel free to ask us so we can help you decide if it’s realistically something you have time to make such a big commitment to. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED TO STUDENTS WHO WITHDRAW AFTER COMPLETING ENROLLMENT.
A detailed schedule/call sheet will not be issued as all kids are called for the duration of camp.
NO CONFLICTS are allowed during contract. With only two weeks, we are not able to work around individual schedules.
