- Half-day camps are improvisational and do not require reading ability.
- Full-day camps DO require reading skills and memorization of 30 min. scripts.
- It is better to select a camp according to reading level and maturity rather than actual age.
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 Education Director (206) 388-9212, who will then pass the message.
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.
Code of Conduct
Stone Soup Theatre fosters a safe environment for each child to grow and experiment as artist in development. Students are expected to treat every instructor, every student, every costume, prop and set piece with respect at all times.
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.
Stone Soup Theatre instructors are usually able to create ways for children with special needs to succeed. Please write down any and all medications and any physical, emotional or behavioral challenges your child may have on your student’s Emergency Contact Form and discuss them with the Education Director and/or with your child’s instructor prior to the first day of class. This information will make our class instruction more effective and your child’s experience more rewarding. Any information provided on your Emergency Contact Form remain confidential. Please note that Stone Soup Theatre instructors cannot to monitor or administer medications.
Thoughtfully, Stone Soup Theatre selects its outdoor locations ensuring there will be a sheltered area nearby where the students can go in case of rain.
