Spaces in each class are limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Register early to save your spot.

Frequently asked questions


Will classes be socially-distanced?

Yes. Classes and productions have been specifically chosen to allow for social distancing both in the classroom setting and when staging. Class sizes at Storybook are always small and registration will be closed once we hit capacity for each of these. Minimum number of students for any class to run is 6. Maximum number of students in any class is 12. Keep in mind: this is still live theater and kids are still kids! If your family feels safer participating virtually, we understand and encourage you to choose that option! Find our virtual class options here.  

Will masks be required?

Yes, per Jackson County health guidelines, participants will need to wear a mask to and from classes and while engaging in any activities that are not sufficiently socially distanced. Our new space is shared and there will be dance students in the building during some of the times that we are holding classes. 

Can parents stay for classes?

Due to the need for social distancing, we encourage parents to drop off their students for classes. We will need to keep the room capacity from being over-extended. There will be limited seating available in the lobby area. Please limit the waiting parties to one person per family if at all possible. 

Where will classes take place?

All classes will take place at Kansas City Movement studio, 1101 NW Knox Street, Blue Springs, MO. This location is about 2.5 miles from our previous studio/theater space at 3719 SW US 40 Highway. 

Where will performances take place?

There will be no live, in-person end of semester performances aside from the parent showcase for Rising Stars on the last day of class. All other details regarding final productions are detailed above. 

What happened to our old studio/theater on 40 Highway?

Due to circumstances outside our control, it become apparent that this space was not a good long-term fit for our company. While we are sad to lose having "our own stage" for the moment, we are excited for future opportunities to grow in bigger and better ways! In-person classes currently take place at KC Movement, 1101 NW Knox, Blue Springs, MO. 

Can I participate in an in-person class AND a virtual class?

YES! Absolutely!


What's your refund policy?
Students who begin a multiple-week class or production and are not able to attend a portion or a remainder of the class will unfortunately not receive a refund or makeup session. In the event that Storybook Theatre cancels a class during the session due to unforeseen circumstances, every effort will be made to provide a make-up session or studio credit to offset the fee. If the minimum number of students is not reached for your class and you are not able to transfer to a different class time, a full refund will be given. 

What happens in the case of the CDC or a local county health guideline limiting our ability to hold a class or show? 
Every effort will be made to continue our classes and productions in a manner that meets the guidelines. In the case of an event or mandate that restricts this, the classes or productions will be postponed until classes can resume or continued virtually. 

I paid for a class in Spring 2020 but did not participate in the virtual semester that replaced my class. Can I use class credit toward one of these productions? 
Likely, yes. Contact Julie to discuss your specific class registration and we will go from there! 816.204.5702 or directorjewels@gmail.com
