AGDT Summer 2013 Kids Class Registration Information

Feel free to pass on the word about AGDT to any homeschool support groups or friends who may be interested!  Thank you!  

Please make sure to read ALL the information below - several things have changed.

Hello American Girls and Families! 
I know that a lot of you are anxious for more information about the Summer Class Schedule, so here is the scoop!  It was my intention to have a few new scripts in the line-up this semester, but in order to get the information out faster - I am going with some old favorites and working toward new scripts for fall.
Class Is Full! 5/13 - 7:45pm    
Please only sign up if you would like to be added to the waiting list.
Tuesday (12:30-2:00pm)
Tea For Felicity – Published by American Girl, this story is based on the book Felicity Learns a Lesson by Valerie Tripp.  Felicity is eager to begin lessons at Miss Manderly's home, but as a Patriot in the time of the Boston Tea Party during the American Revolution, she is caught in a turmoil over what to do at tea-time.  Character opportunities include Felicity, Annabelle, Elizabeth, Miss Manderly, Father & Angry Man (some parts are doubled).  There are 4 spaces available in this class.

Class Is Full! 5/13 - 6:50pm 
Please only sign up if you would like to be added to the waiting list.
Thursday A (2:00-3:30pm)Home Is Where The Heart Is - Published by American Girl, this play is based on the book Meet Kirsten by Janet Shaw.  Kirsten, her best friend Marta, Mama and Papa come to America on a ship from Sweden.  Kirsten’s family continues their journey, even after Marta's death, until they reach Uncle Olaf’s house in Minnesota. Character opportunities include Kirsten, Marta, Mama, Papa, Lisbeth, and Anna (some parts are doubled).  There are 4 spaces in this class.

Class Is Full! 5/13 - 6:50pm 
Please only sign up if you would like to be added to the waiting list.
 Thursday B (3:30-5:00pm) - Rebecca & Ana – Based on Rebecca & Ana by Jacqueline Greene, this play tells the story of Rebecca and her cousin Ana, who arrives as an immigrant in New York City.  Character opportunities include Rebecca, Ana, Sadie, Sophie, Mama, Bubbie, Miss Maloney, and Rose.  There are 7 spaces available in this class.

The classes will begin on June 18 (Tuesday classes) / June 20 (Thursday classes) and run weekly through August 8.  The 8th and final rehearsal will be on Thursday, August 8 - for all classes, including the Tuesday class.  The class times all remain the same.  This schedule change allows all dress rehearsals to take place the weekend of the performance and will be easier on my staff, as we will be rehearsing at the church this final week.  If you are interested in the Tuesday class but CANNOT make the schedule change for the final rehearsal, please email me before signing up. 

I would prefer for any student to only miss a maximum of 2 practices.  While it’s not a requirement, it would be best for everyone involved if the full class can attend the first practice on June 18 / 20.  This will be the day we pick parts for the play.

The plays will be performed at Faith Baptist Church in Lees Summit, MO.  The performance of all classes will be on Saturday, August 10, at 3:00pm.   

The girls will need to arrive at the church at 9:30 am for a final dress rehearsal on the day of their play.  We will have pizza for lunch and have time to do everyone's hair and makeup before it's showtime! This is the biggest change this year - an afternoon performance instead of evening!  Please take note!

COSTUME DAY will be on Saturday, July 13 from 11:00am-3:00pm.  Each student will need to have a quick costume appointment during this timeframe.  This meeting will be at another location in Lees Summit (my parent's house), where my costume collection is housed.  Attendance at Costume Day is mandatory unless arrangements are made at registration. 
Classes will be held at my house in Lees Summit.  I will send directions to the enrolled students' families before the classes begin.
Pricing is as follows: $80 for one daughter, $75 each for two daughters, $70 each for three or more daughters.  The class cost covers: 17 hours of rehearsal time, one-on-one acting coaching, script, free admission for family and friends to the performance, most costume and prop expenses (with the exception of any personal items such as tights/undershirts), and performance day lunch/snacks. 

Registration/Payment Info:

To register for a class:

1.  Fill out the registration form – click here.

2.  Wait for Confirmation Email.

3.  Once Confirmation Email is received, submit payment within 3 days.  Payment forms accepted are PayPal, Personal Check, or Cash.

*If you are paying by check, you will STILL fill out the registration form online.  There are no more paper registration forms! 

*If I do not receive the tuition within three days of receipt of confirmation email, your registration will be bumped to the bottom of the class list (which in some cases will mean that it is no longer valid).

The full class fee is required with registration (if this is a problem, let me know and I’m sure we can work something out – it is a requirement due to problems I have had in past semesters).  Your registration and payment will hold your space in the class.  Note that the number of spaces is limited and will be filled first-come, first-serve, in the order I receive the registrations.  You can still email/call to ask about availability, but I can't hold spaces without your registration. 

The registration deadline for these classes is Friday, May 24Click here for the registration form!
