ATTENDANCE POLICY

Growing In the Arts expects that all efforts are made to attend weekly acting classes and that families take their commitment seriously. If actors are absent from weekly acting classes, it negatively impacts the team, and will effect their role in the performance piece. Our goal is to teach actors the responsibility that comes from maintaining commitment to a team that shares a common goal. This means that we rely on parents to help us enforce our attendance policy by ensuring that your actor does not let their team down by continued absences.


BLACK OUT CLASSES

This applies to ALLactors who are registered at Growing In The Arts. The 4 classes leading up to any and all final performances are known as ‘Black Out Classes’ and absolutely can not be missed. Any actors that miss, do so with the understanding that the Director may make modifications to the performance piece to better prepare the cast for success. Missing a Black Out Class may result in an actor not being able to perform in the scheduled show. 


TECHNICAL DRESS REHEARSALS

This applies to ALLactors who are registered at Growing In The Arts. Actors must attend any and all Technical Dress Rehearsals held at the theatre. Actors who do not attend will not perform in the show.


MONDAY & THURSDAY ACTING CLASSES

Actors who miss more than 2 acting classes in Term 1 (September – December) or more than 2 acting classes in Term 2 (January – May) will be removed from the studio unless otherwise approved by the Director. Actors who are absent for more than 2 acting classes in a row will be removed from the studio unless approved by the Director.
