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 skill-level 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 will be posted during the second week of class. 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 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 allow each student to submit two absences during contract provided they are approved prior to the first class, and do not fall within two weeks of performances. We ask that you check below for dates and times before enrolling, so that the rehearsal schedule can be thoughtfully made with 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 the time to make such a big commitment. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED TO STUDENTS WHO WITHDRAW AFTER COMPLETING ENROLLMENT.

A detailed schedule/call sheet will be issued no later than Thursday, September 15.
Two conflicts are allowed during contract, only if submitted by the deadline of Saturday, September 17.
NO CONFLICTS are allowed within two weeks of performances, this includes November 17 & November 26 thru December 4.
