Q: Why did tuition increase?
A: While we try to keep our tuition competitive with other theater companies, we did have to raise it in 2015. Our tuition cost stayed the same for some time while the company experienced increased staffing costs, we are now including digital access to show pictures for all actors, and the increased overhead costs for online registrations and payment.
Q: I need to work out a payment plan or ask for a full/partial scholarship. How do I do that?
A: Please contact our Business Director Tanessa Daw BEFORE registration to work out details. We don’t want to turn families away for financial reasons and will do our best to make it work!
Q: I am having problems with the registration program. Who do I contact?
A: Contact our Business Director, Tanessa Daw. Sending emails/texts to Barb and/or Katie in addition will only add confusion to our team!
Q: I have/know of a teen who is interested in being an Intern. Who do I contact?
A: Please contact Barb Galiotto.
