IMPORTANT NOTE ON OUR CORE VALUES: Before enrolling in our production class, please consider the following…
**You are agreeing to commit your child to the class’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 our educational goals and the production as a whole. We do not cast based on seniority within the company, nor do we pre-cast any role on student productions. The cast list will be posted within one week of auditions. All students interested in our production classes are taught to show up with open minds and hearts, eager to have a life-enriching experience. 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 encourage students and families who are only interested in lead or featured roles to explore our community based mindset or to seek opportunities elsewhere. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED TO STUDENTS WHO WITHDRAW AFTER COMPLETING ENROLLMENT.
