AGDT Fall 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.
I know that a lot of you are anxious for more information about the Summer Class Schedule, so here is the scoop!  I'm excited to be offering ALL new plays this fall! Titles for the plays will be coming later; I'm still working on scripts. :)
CLASS IS FULL except little sister role. 8/25 9:45pm.
Tuesday (12:30-2:00pm)
Caroline – This story is based on A Surprise for Caroline. Caroline can't understand why her friends want to stay indoors when all she wants to do is skate and sled in the snow! Frustrated with them, Caroline makes a rash decision that leaves all three girls on thin ice! Character opportunities include Caroline, Lydia, Rhonda, Mother, Grandmother, and Amelia.  There are 5 spaces available in this class with one additional "little sister" (age 5-7) role. The little sis role is at a 50% tuition rate.

Class is Full. 9/3/2013
Thursday A (3:30-5:00pm)
Kit -
This story is based on Kit's Surprise. Kit is afraid her family's Christmas - and her friendship with Ruthie - may be ruined by the Great Depression. Character opportunities include Kit, Ruthie, Mother, Uncle Hendrick, Miss Hart, and Miss Finney.  There are 6 spaces in this class.

Class is Full. 9/3/2013  
Thursday B (5:00-6:30pm) - Samantha – Samantha is worried when it appears that a visit from her uncle's special friend Cornelia will turn Christmas into a disaster. This story is based on Samantha's Surprise. Character opportunities include Samantha, Ida, Mrs. Hawkins, Jessie, Elsa, Grandmary, and Cornelia.  There are 6 spaces available in this class.
***NOTE: Several families have requested an evening class since their children are in a public or private school setting. If you are a homeschooling family, I would appreciate it if you can consider one of the other class offerings before this one. 

Tuesday Evening (5:00-7:00pm) - this is the Teen Class, but there are 4 spaces at a reduced tuition rate available for kids ages 8-11. For more info, check out the Teen page.

The classes will begin on September 17 (Tuesday classes) / September 19 (Thursday classes) and run weekly through November 7.  The 8th and final rehearsal will be on Thursday, November 7 - 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 September 17 / 19.  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, November 9, 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, October 12 from 11:00am-2:00pm.  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 Monday, September 9Click here for the registration form!
