During this full year program, students will develop their acting skills while producing a full length play. Student will work together to learn their lines, blocking and develop their character for the production, and take part in creating the props and sets for the production.

Due to the large amount of planning required for our theatre productions and a number of large upfront costs associated with producing a musical, no refunds will be given for cancelled registrations, unless we are able to fill your child’s spot in the production. If your child’s spot is filled, a non-transferrable CREDIT (less a $20 processing fee) will be issued, which can be used towards any program at Arts Abound for up to 1 year after it is issued. CREDITS HAVE NO CASH VALUE.
Theatre is a team effort! Every performer plays a vital role in telling the story, making attendance extremely important. Acting Out is a year-long commitment. Students are expected to be at all classes, rehearsals, and performances listed above for their class. Failure to attend 3 or more rehearsals may result in your performer being removed from scenes or his/her role being reassigned. These decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis and are largely driven by the level of disruption to the rest of the cast. Opportunities to make up missed rehearsal with one of the instructors may be an option and will be at the parents’ expense. During the final 3 weeks before performance students are expected to attend 100% of class and rehearsals, these mandatory rehearsals have been listed for each class.
Arts Abound reserves the right to remove a child from their program if any disabilities have not been declared at the time of registration and/or the level of care and supports required was not accurately communicated.
UNMANAGEABLE, INAPPROPRIATE AND DANGEROUS BEHAVIOUR
Arts Abound reserves the right to remove a child from class, without refund, if their behaviour or the behaviour of their parent(s)/guardian(s) is deemed to be unmanageable, inappropriate, and/or is dangerous to themselves or others. Bullying and harassment – of any kind – will not be tolerated.
Arts Abound is committed to creating a safe, supportive, and encouraging space for all members and allies of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
