We ask that, as a courtesy to our instructors and fellow students, you let us know in advance of any absences your child might have. You may let the instructor know during drop-off/pick-up or call our office at (206) 669-8535.
Please note that attendance to rehearsals is mandatory for performance based programs and absences affect the performance of every child in the class. Students aiming for a main part in our Youth Conservatory shows must be available for every rehearsal. Stone Soup Theatre reserves the right to re-assign parts due to absences.
We ask that (for your child’s safety) you let us know of any relatives who might be picking up your child after class/camp. That way we can ensure your child always leaves with the right person. There is a section for this in our Emergency Contact Form.
During performance programs, parents will be expected to work with their children and assist them to learn lines.

Stone Soup Theatre reserves the right to terminate a student’s participation in any class at any time due to continuous disruptive behavior, with no refund. Parents will be notified ahead of time and ample warning will be given before this decision is made.
