Egyptian YouTheatre Classes are held at the new Egyptian Studios - 330 Main St. (basement)
(accessible from same side of street as Egyptian Theatre via breezeway between Swede Alley & Main St.)
At EYT we believe that ensemble theatre is a team sport, requiring consistent attendance and participation. We will begin invoicing parents for repeated late pick-ups and absences, without prior notice and approval. Communication is key! We do retain the right to make exceptions on a case-by-case basis.
The success of a tuition-free program like ours is dependent on students not just signing up but attending regularly. We strive to serve every child who wants to participate in the performing arts, while maintaining the highest standards of quality instruction. Therefore, some cancellations and no-show situations will include cancellation fees billed to the parent/guardian. Signing up for our tuition-free classes is a commitment to bringing your child on a regular basis and not taking up space that could go to another student.
Once maximum class size is reached, registration will be closed, and a waitlist started. Even with a waitlist, it is difficult to fill empty spots the closer we get to the start date. Cancellations made at certain points, and no-shows following the start of the semester, will be subject to the following fees:
- Cancellations made 4-7 days prior to camp start date will be charged a $100 fee.
- Cancellations made with less than 72 hours’ notice of camp start date will be charged a $200 fee.
- Cancellations made after camp start date and no-shows will be charged a $200 fee.
Fees will be billed in the form of an invoice from the Egyptian Theatre accounts department.
By registering my child in an Egyptian YouTheatre Class, I acknowledge it is my responsibility to adhere to the following:
I understand that arriving on time for drop-off & pick-up is imperative for the smooth running of classes. I will drop off and pick-up only at the designated area, and within the 10-minute drop-off & pick-up times. I understand YouTheatre staff is not responsible for my child if I drop off earlier than designated drop-off time and that Egyptian YouTheatre may bill me $5/minute for every minute a YT staff member needs to wait with my child to be picked-up past the 10-minute designated pick-up time. New safety protocols mean our entrances will be locked to the public. Latecomers are not permitted to join class without prior notice/approval, and consistent tardiness could result in charges and/or dismissal.
I agree to monitor my child’s health for the days prior to camp start date and each day of classes. I will not drop my child(ren) off to class if they exhibit any of the following symptoms: fever, shortness of breath, diarrhea, muscle aches, nausea, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, vomiting. If my child exhibits these symptoms during the class session, I will pick my child up promptly when contacted by YouTheatre staff.
I understand that consistent attendance in essential for my child to get the most out of their class experience and I agree to give prior notice for all absences. I understand that if my child(ren) have multiple unexplained absences I will be issued a warning for removal and invoiced $50 on the third class. The next unapproved absence will result in my child(ren) being removed from the class roster.
The Egyptian YouTheatre runs on a three-strike behavior policy for students. Strike 1 is a verbal warning directly to the student. Strike 2 includes notifying the parent of the situation. Strike 3 will result in dismissal from the program.
To encourage student participation we are introducing a ticket-based reward system, redeemable at the new YouTheatre Store!
Students will earn tickets by checking in to class on time and actively participating in each class. The store will be open to students during Week 5 (March 6-10) and Week 10 (May 1-4) during Spring Semester. Tickets can roll over from Fall Semester to Spring for students who want to save up for bigger items!
