Please make sure to read ALL the information below - several things have changed.
AGDT Teen Classes are for girls ages 13 and older. Age 12 is okay if they have previously participated in at least two past AGDT Classes.
At this time, I am only offering one teen class. This is due to a larger sized cast. The practice time is longer for this reason, as well.
If there is a large demand beyond the spaces available, I will figure something out!
CLASS IS FULL - 7/29/14 11:30pm
Please only sign up if you wish to be added to the waiting list.
Tuesday (4:30-7:00pm) – The Shakespeare Convention. This play is similar to our summer show (Bremen Town) in that it has a cast of quirky and zany characters. Lots of opportunities for improvisation. All characters will be very energetic and fun! There are 15 spaces available in this class. Here is some info about this play from the licensing website:
Bumbling producer Burbage and his irate associate Iggy have put together a Shakespeare convention, at which the actors perform four plays and a sonnet in a rather unconventional manner. Iggy is out to ruin Burbage, but loses the plot a little towards the end!
Almost everyone in this script will have multiple roles to portray. This script features comic (game show) version of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo & Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, and King Lear. I think it will be a big hit.
Schedule for final week:
Tuesday, November 4 - 4:30-8:00pm Dress Rehearsal
Thursday, November 6 - 6:00-8:00pm Dress Rehearsal
These will be at the church.
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 2. This will be the day parts are chosen for the play.
The plays will be performed at Faith Baptist Church, and the final week's rehearsals will be at the church as well. The performance will be on Friday, November 7 at 7:00pm.
The girls will need to arrive at the church at 2:00 pm for a final dress rehearsal on the day of their play. We will have dinner and have time to do everyone's hair and makeup before it's showtime!
COSTUME DAY will be on Saturday, October 11 from 10:00am-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: $95 for one daughter, $90 each for two daughters. The class cost covers: 26 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), and performance day dinner/snacks.
Registration/Payment Info (this has changed; please read):
To register for a class:
1. Fill out the registration form – Click here.
2. Wait for Confirmation Email. This usually takes me a day or two. :)
3. Once Confirmation Email is received, submit payment within 3 days. Payment forms accepted are PayPal, Personal Check, or Cash.
*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 23. Click here to register for a class.
