  • Withdrawal/Refund Policy
    Written notice is required for all program withdrawals. Any student who wishes to withdraw from a program before the third rehearsal (November 29th, 2023) will be refunded in full (minus a 10% administrative fee). Withdrawals after the third rehearsal but before the December 6th auditions are subject to a 50% refund. Withdrawals after this period are nonrefundable.
  • Attendance/Lateness/Absences Policy
    Students must attend all classes. If a student will be away or late for class, it is the student’s responsibility to email theplayerstheatreco@gmail.com prior to class; Rehearsal choreography videos will be made available shortly after each rehearsal and it is the student’s responsibility to watch these videos/practice with castmates to catch up on what they have missed. A student may be removed from a number if they miss a major music/choreography/ blocking rehearsal and are not willing to catch up on their own time. If a student is repeatedly late or misses two or more classes, they may not be able to continue with the program and take part in the final performances (at the discretion of the artistic team).
  • Participation/Behaviour Policy
    Participants are expected to attend all classes with enthusiasm, positivity, and an eagerness to learn. Students should engage actively in each rehearsal and come prepared to succeed. Respect for fellow students and teachers is very important. There will be zero tolerance for bullying or inappropriate behaviour.
